Slow Cooker Easy Peach Cobbler
I first made this peach cobbler recipe back in 2012 for my mother whose health was poor. I traveled back to Utah with my children to spend a month with her and was privileged to make dinner for her each night. Something she thoroughly enjoyed.
Growing up, my mom had a peach tree at her childhood home. And they all canned peaches every summer from that tree. As an adult, when my grandfather would travel to see my mom he had to see that old peach tree. Just to check up on it and see how it was growing.
I now have my own peach tree growing in my backyard. And my family loves to can and freeze the peaches most years. However, Kansas weather is a bit more wild that Utah. So it can be a bit more hit or miss with how our tree produces.
My children also loved this slow cooker peach cobbler too…although I suspect my youngest liked the vanilla ice cream the most.
This recipe uses frozen peaches that you have either frozen yourself, or you can find in the freezer section at the grocery store. These will have far less sugar than canned peaches, and being frozen they will cook for the appropriate time without burning. You can also use fresh peaches and the cooking time will be the same.
I used a smaller 4 quart slow cooker with this recipe, if you are using a larger slow cooker I would probably double the recipe so that this doesn’t burn. You’ll want to eye ball the mixture as it may not be done at 3 1/2 hours if you double the recipe. This is fabulous after dinner but will also work well for potlucks if you want to bring something a bit different.
I might of even sneaked a little for breakfast…oatmeal and peaches totally count for breakfast right? 🙂
