Delicious southern, soul food style peach cobbler recipe made with canned peaches.
(Originally Titled Rosie’s Peach Cobbler Recipe!)
When I first started uploading soul food recipes online, peach cobbler was one of my most requested recipes. Everyone wanted to know how I made my cobbler. Some wanted to know if I used bisquick. Others wanted to know if I topped my cobbler with a crisp. But the biggest mystery was whether If I use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches for my cobbler.
So what do I use? I actually do it all. However, my FAVORITE Peach Cobbler Recipe will probably always be my original recipe that I uploaded back in 2011 ( I know I say they’re all my favorite, but this one is truly my FAV!!). Back then I called it ” Rosie’s Peach Cobbler”, and referred to it as my busy mom peach cobbler because it is quick and easy to make.
For this soulful peach cobbler I use store bought pie dough, and canned peaches in heavy syrup. This cobbler has dumplings throughout the filling, and there is plenty of cobbler juice( just like soul food peach cobbler should have). I use cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to spice up the cobbler. However, if you’re not a fan of ginger, you can leave it out.

Good afternoon Rosie, I have been looking for your recipe for turkey butter on your website, and could not find it. I was wondering if you could send it to me? I will be making Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow, and would love to use your turkey butter recipe on my turkey.
Hi Danielle. Unfortunately, that recipe is now longer available.
DeAnna Rattler says
Hello Rosie, I emailed you last week, so I’m trying to see if you can email me a copy of your cookbook you put together, I purchased it back in 2015 and now I can’t find the email when you sent it. I have a copy of my receipt where I can show you that I purchased it. Please advise on what I should do. Thank you in advance.
Hi DeAnna. Unfortunately I have to locate file. If I can find it, I will send it to you.
Omg! I don’t know if it’s because I’m currently expecting but I love everything on your site and I want to try it all lol. I’ll be giving this recipe a go this Sunday. Thank you!

i tried this love it i had to add fresh lemon juice to mine but i am making this for the second time love the cobbler throughout it
When place the cut up squares in the bottom of the dish is there any certain way that you lay them??
Hi Shale! Nope, just make sure that they are evenly spread out.
Is it okay to put the dumplings in the boiler with peaches ?
Hi Jameka! For best results, follow the instructions listed 🙂
I followed your recipe for the peach cobbler and it was a success. My coworkers loved it that I’m going to make it for this Friday’s lunch. It was easy to follow and not to sweet. Loved it very much.
Glad that you liked the recipe!

Glad that you liked the recipe1
Do you cover this in the oven?
CJ. [email protected]
No you leave it uncovered.
I never used pie crust before. Does it come in a red box that I always see in the store?
Hi CJ. There are different brands to choose from 🙂
Best peach cobbler ever…thanks
Thanks for trying my recipe hun!
Hi Rosie, I was wondering which Peach cobbler recipe you recommend for Thanksgiving dinner, Grandma’s or yours? What if sort of combined them by using grandma’s southern peach cobbler crust instead of store bought, but I follow this recipe the rest of the way? My husband loves the peach part but I love the dumpling. So I’m trying to meet in the middle.
Hi Shondra! The biggest difference is the crust. If you don’t feel like making it from scratch, definitely use this one. If you’re down for making the crust – Grandmas 😉
Grandma’s it is. I got my husbands southern family coming over this year gotta make everything from scratch or trouble ensues. Thank you Rosie.
LOL!!! Good luck hun!
Eugenia Bell says
Hi Rosie, I was wondering if this freezes well to be made at a later date?
I never froze it before. Sorry.
GLORIA MATTHEWS says
Love your recipe. I like your peach cobbler recipe. I love my mom’s recipe (see passed in 2008) and I try to keep in going for my grand-daughters, Will trying your recipe for Christmas. Using your recipe for my sweet potato pies for Thanksgiving. Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.
Hi Gloria! Thanks for coming by! Happy Holidays!
Keisha Washington says
Hi! Can i put a crust at the bottom and add crust to the filling. Then put on the top crust? Would that be ok?
Eileen Gray says
I’m doing the deserts this year as well as the sweet potatos. Am planning to do your red velvet cheesecake recipe and this peach cobbler. What difference have you found in pre-baking the dumpling strips? Just curious.
Will also do your baked candied yams. The recipe mentions white sugar but not how much.
My grandson prefers sweet potato souffle or mashed. Do you have a recipe for that as well?
Hi Eileen. The sugar amount is indeed listed for the yams 🙂 . Also, baking the dough before adding it to the cobbler makes the dumplings more firm.
Annette Manley says
Thanks so much for sharing your recipes…….I’m doing the slower cooker turkey wings, southern peach cobbler and the sweet potato pie! Yummy! Happy Thanksgiving!
Denise M Kellum says
Just wondering, are you supposed to put slits in top of crust before baking or you don’t have to?
Your dumpling cobbler looks amazing~ Thank you for this recipe. Like grandma used to make!
You don’t have to 🙂
Welp! I made this late last year and I’m not sure if I posted the OUTCOME! Babyeeeee! Let me tell ya….TDF= TO DIE FOR! Love it, and the person I made if for loved it…….u can’t go wrong! She’s right, it is NOT a diet cobbler…..Love thus far ALL the recipes…..
Thanks for trying DJ 🙂
Marlo Payne says
I want to let you know that I have a very picky 15 yr old that said the cobbler smelled good but he don’t know, well let me say that he has eaten half the tray, I have never made a cobbler before and this was easy and delicious! Thanks from my picky son
WOW!! Glad that he LOVES it! LOL
What if I use unsalted butter? Would it turn out okay
Yes, it will be fine 🙂
I searched so many websites, watched videos and couldn’t decide. Then I finally decided to try yours ….. all I can say is thank you. The pickiest of people was licking the bowl.
Rosie, thanks so much. This recipe was quick, easy and tasty which worked out perfect for my family since we are always on the go. Love the recipes!

Can’t wait to make this cobbler for Christmas. Decided to do another menu other than the traditional turkey we have always done. This year we will be doing our favorite southern recipes. Do this will be a perfect dessert. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!
Peg Robarchek says
I’m 67 years old and I’ve been looking for decades for a cobbler recipe with dumplings! This is how I grew up eating it in Alabama and people look at me like I have two heads when I talk about cobbler with dumplings. The stuff with just a crust on top is not even CLOSE in deliciousness. So thank you, thank you, thank you for this recipe.
Isn’t it funny how many people never heard of dumplings in cobbler?! It’s the best!!XOXO
Made your cobbler to the “T” per the recipe. . . it was fabulous. None left for the next day and it’s only 3 of us. I will be doubling the ingredients next time. My question is, I love crust, how can I add more crust without over cooking the cobbler???
You can add more crust, but that will definitely change the texture of the cobbler.
This will be my second time making this and I must say…I LOVE IT. Thank you rosie for such an easy recipe I can follow, Also I tried most of your recipes and I like them all I even have my friends try your recipes and they like them too. Thanks
Deidre C says
I have been thinking of a peach cobbler from my childhood made by my friends mom who lived around the corner – – she is old school southern and I stumbled across your recipe and believe this is IT!!!!! I look forward to recreating that cherished “flavor” from my past once again. Thank you for sharing your talent.
I ve made the cobbler before, it turned out great. Instead of adding ginger have you tried using rim flavoring instead. Just curious.
No, I haven’t tried rum.
I am terrible with crust! Thank you for this recipe it sounds easy too. I will definitely be making it soon!
Dana Chambers-Souiri says
Can I use frozen peaches? If so, do I also add sugar and is there anything else to add?
Yes, you can use canned peaches. The recipe would be the same. If anything, you may want to add less sugar.
THE BEST peach cobbler! My entire family loves it! The first time I made it, I used your recipe for pie crust from your sweet potato pie recipe. YUM! Perfect! Then, I tried to make it again with a store bought crust. The taste doesn’t come close to your pie crust recipe! The extra time is most definitely worth it. I will be making it again tonight because my entire family’s taste buds keep screaming for more!
Thanks so much for trying my recipe! XOXO
