Southern Nectarine Cobbler
I have the most spectacular dessert for you today! Southern Nectarine Cobbler. Wow this dessert was so good I had all of our company drooling over it! Instead of peaches, this cobbler uses nectarines. It has a wonderful topping covered with cinnamon sugar. Yes, it was fantastic with ice cream and a little caramel sauce drizzled over top. 🙂
Last Friday I received a box of nectarines and peaches from the Washington State Fruit Commission. The fruit was delightful, but the nectarines were absolutely marvelous. Sweet, juicy, wonderful.
Full disclosure here: I have NEVER made anything with nectarines before. NEVER! I’ve eaten nectarines raw, but I’ve never cooked with them. I didn’t realize what I’d been missing out on! Nectarines are sensational cooked up in pie or cobbler. They taste like peaches but the skin on the fruit is thinner. It’s almost like the skin on a plum.
I got the box about 1 or 2 pm last week and decided to throw together a cobbler for dinner that night with our Friday night Bible study group. I think about 15 people tried the cobbler. Without exception, all of our group loved it. I kept asking everyone, “What did you think of it?” It was a winner with young and old alike. We served it with ice cream, although I ate my portion plain.
The next time you find nectarines in the store, you’ve got to make up this amazing Southern Nectarine Cobbler. I’m sure you’re family will drool over it just like ours did.
Southern Nectarine Cobbler is awesome.
It’s terrific with ice cream and caramel sauce. 🙂
No kidding. This dessert will knock your socks off. It’s that good.
I thought this dessert was better than Peach Cobbler! Yum.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the fruit filling.
Peel and slice nectarines. Place in a large mixing bowl.
Add sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornstarch.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Place nectarine mixture in a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make topping.
I used these ingredients for the topping, plus boiling water.
Place UNBLEACHED flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add sugar, brown sugar, salt and baking powder.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form.
This is what the mixture should look like.
Add boiling water.
Stir ingredients to combine. Set aside.
I used these ingredients for the cinnamon sugar topping.
Combine ingredients and set aside.
Remove nectarines from oven.
Dollop nectarines with topping.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top.
Continue baking at 400 degrees another 30 minutes or until nectarines are cooked through and tender and topping is set.
Serve plain if desired.
Or top with ice cream.
Southern Nectarine Cobbler was such a delicious dessert. Everyone raved over it.
Here’s the recipe.

This dessert had me drooling.
Every bite was so mouthwatering. I probably could have eaten the whole dessert by myself. Thankfully, I had others to share it with.
