Magic Peach Cobbler sure is magical. No kidding. If we’re talking baseball, this recipe is not merely a home run–it’s a GRAND SLAM! Magical, indeed. The crust topping bakes up so wonderfully that all you want to do is keep eating. Magic Peach Cobbler has peaches on the bottom, then a crust is spooned on top, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and then boiling water is poured over top before baking. The crust transforms while baking and rises to the top like magic and the flavor is absolutely awesome.
I tried many different Peach Cobbler recipes with our peaches this year including my favorite Double Crust Peach Cobbler, Tennessee Peach Pudding, Peach Cobbler with Praline Filling, Easy Peach Cobbler , Mom’s Peach Cobbler, Gluten Free Peach Surprise and even Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler. Without exception, all were fantastic, but Magic Peach Cobbler was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I loved this stuff and will certainly put it on our menu regularly for Peach Cobblers in the future.
I was down to the last few cups of peaches left for baking and I had some friends in our Sunday school class ask me if I would help make some Peach Pies or Peach Cobblers for their daughter’s wedding next summer. Their future son-in-law doesn’t like cake but he loves pie and cobbler, and coming from Georgia, he especially loves Peach Pies and Peach Cobblers. They wanted some samples of my cooking to get an idea of what to ask for. So I sent them a couple of cobblers. Magic Peach Cobbler was the one they raved about.
I agreed with them, it was certainly one of the best cobblers I’ve ever eaten, plus it’s really fairly simple to assemble. I love my Double Crust Peach Cobbler recipe but it really is a bit more work rolling out two pie crusts – and since I make this in a huge baking dish it’s a lot more effort than Magic Peach Cobbler. If I end up making some cobbler recipes for her daughter’s wedding, I’m pretty sure Magic Peach Cobbler will be on the menu. They want a simple wedding with foods they enjoy and they loved this dessert.
If you’re looking for easy, if you’re looking for delicious, if you’re looking for a peachy dessert, and if you’re looking for magical, you’ve come to the right place. Magic Peach Cobbler is the cobbler for you! I recommend getting yourself to the store ASAP and get peaches while you still can and then make up a batch of Magic Peach Cobbler for your next meal! Seriously, it is REALLY that good. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Your friends and family will be licking the dish before you can blink your eye. 🙂
Magic Peach Cobbler is pure magic! We loved this cobbler.
The crust on Magic Peach Cobbler is what’s magical. You pour hot water over the crust and cinnamon-sugar mixture and it magically blends together into a spectacular topping.
Magic Peach Cobbler rocks!
Here’s what I did.

Pare and slice peaches. Place in a greased 9×9″ baking dish.
In a mixing bowl place softened butter, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla.
Cream ingredients with an electric mixer until combined.

Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Pour boiling water over top. Make sure all the sugar is covered and no dry spots remain.

Serve Magic Peach Cobbler dolloped with whipping cream, non-dairy whipped topping or ice cream.
Or you can serve Magic Peach Cobbler plain.
This dessert is so delectable you won’t be able to stop eating it no matter which way you serve it.
