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.

I used these ingredients to make Peach Cobbler Cookies.
Melt butter in bowl. Stir Greek yogurt so that it’s well mixed. Add yogurt, sugar, salt, baking soda and vanilla.
Mix with an electric mixer to combine.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add finely diced peaches.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
With a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, scoop dough and place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 about 18-20 minutes. (I made whoppers, if you make smaller cookies they won’t take quite as long to bake).
