Peach Cobbler Cookies

Peach Cobbler Cookies are awesome! I made these a couple of weeks ago when I was trying to use up all the bushels of fresh peaches from our backyard peach trees. This simple sugar cookie recipe has peach-flavored Greek yogurt as well as peaches for flavor. Having a bite of Peach Cobbler Cookies is like eating peach cobbler in cookie form. It’s wonderful.

I love peaches, so I was overjoyed when we purchased this home a few years ago and found out that it had six mature peach trees in the back forty. But since we are not peach farmers (and apparently the past several owners haven’t been either), the peach trees have been somewhat neglected. We ran our sprinkler system out there this year, pruned quite a bit, and fertilized the trees this year,  but that’s all we did. Next year we’re going to have to spray after the buds come out to eliminate worms and spotting. We may even wrap the trees in netting to protect the fruit. We’ll see how ambitious we are when the time comes around. We also have to thin out the buds and cut back some of the old limbs so the fruit doesn’t keep draping onto the ground because the limbs are so heavily laden with fruit.

I’m hoping for a better crop next year. It’s not that we didn’t have a high yield. But we did have 20-30% fall on the ground, some were picked at by birds and squirrels and a huge percentage had worms. 🙁  I want a crop of peaches that are tasty enough to eat right off the tree rather than only being able to use them up in baking recipes. Plus, I’d like to give away a lot of peaches to friends and neighbors. So we have our work cut our for us. Even still, we were thrilled with the harvest we had. I think my fingers are going to be permanently stained from peach juice as I peeled and diced up so many bushels of peaches! 🙂

Back to Peach Cobbler Cookies–if you love Peach Cobbler, then you’re going to love this version of cookies as well. They are soft and flavorful and completely satisfying. I loved these cookies. I used a one-quarter cup ice cream scoop to measure out the cookies so mine turned out to be whoppers. If you shape your cookies smaller than that, you will get a greater yield than the 18 large cookies that I got. If you want a delicious snack for your kids that are not overly sweet, but just right, then give Peach Cobbler Cookies a try. You will be licking your fingers for every crumb.

Bake at 350 about 18-20 minutes. (I made whoppers, if you make smaller cookies they won’t take quite as long to bake).

Recipe Notes

NOTE: This recipe works best with peaches that are firm rather than overripe.

    Hi….I made these today but my batter was extremely loose and not doughy at all. Any suggestions? I did use canned peaches versus fresh peaches. I cooked them anyway and they turned out flat and cake like but very delicious! I ended up using the remaining batter and made a cake!

      Hi, Nicole. The canned peaches would have a lot of excess moisture on them unless you dry each slice well with paper towels. If you’re only option is to used canned peaches, next time add a little extra flour and see if that helps the cookies not run so much when baking. You can also chill the dough before rolling and re-chill before baking. That should do the trick.

        Thanks so much for the reply. I actually made these again last night with fresh peaches and added a little bit more flour and that did the trick! Turned out awesome!! Thanks again.

    I am making these to pair with peach sangria…how long will they stay good?

      Hi Janice. If you keep them tightly covered in a plastic container they should last several days. You may have to microwave them for a few seconds to get them soft again if it’s more than a few days. You can also freeze them and then pull them out about an hour or two to thaw before serving. Hope this helps.

    […] I was going through recipes trying to figure out ways I could throw peaches in everything from cookies, to muffins, to cobblers, to cakes, and decided to model this one off of my Apple Dapple Cake […]

    Attempted to make these today. Batter tasted amazing and couldn’t wait to try them. My cookies however did not come out flat like the picture. Mine stayed in ball for and wasn’t near as good as the batter…..any idea why?

      I’m sorry they didn’t turn out like you hoped for, Sherrie. The next time you can gently press the cookies down with your fingers before baking so they spread. That’s what I usually do if cookies don’t spread a little while baking (and they’re supposed to). I have also pressed them down while baking, but that’s usually better done with a fork so you don’t burn your fingers! I hope your next experience is better.

    I made them with canned peaches, and they were good. I am sure they’re even better with fresh.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Becky. They were certainly one of my favorites out of all of the peach desserts I made this summer (40!).

    These are delicious! Mine are cooling right now. I’ve already eaten two. I will try to leave some for breakfast.

    I added some nutmeg, which is what my grandma always puts in her peach cobbler.

      I like the addition of nutmeg. I bet these were scrumptious. I wish I had one right now! 🙂

    Made these today with fresh peaches from the farmers’ market. Awesome. They ended up cakey, which I usually don’t like in cookies, but it worked really well for these. I think my next batch I’ll add a bit of cinnamon.

      Mary-Lynn, I’m so glad you enjoyed the cookies. I thought they were great too. And I bet they would be great with cinnamon. Thanks for letting me know.

    I made these last night with some extra peaches I had. Delicious! They took a long time to cook (and I made them smaller) but it was worth the wait! Both my husband and I really liked them.
