Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream


Summer in the south… heat, humidity, thunderstorms, lightning bugs, porch swings, and peaches. It’s a beautiful time of year.

I have had the best peaches of my life in the last five years since we moved to North Carolina. I’m not sure what their secret is, but the south can grow the sweetest, juiciest, and most delicious peaches. I am smitten!

Every summer, I anxiously await the arrival of peaches to the market. I make weekly (okay, if I’m being honest it’s more like bi-weekly) trips to the farmer’s market to get baskets of fresh peaches. Lately, I’ve been cooking up a storm with them.

To date, my favorite recipe is Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream. Sure I created it as a dessert, but no judgement will be passed should you decide to eat it for breakfast… It may or may not happen here at the farmhouse too. (Shhhh… you’re secret is safe with me!)

The warm, sweet, juicy peaches paired with the slightly sweet and crunchy topping are a match made in heaven. Just when I thought it couldn’t get more delicious, I was inspired to create a bourbon-infused whipped cream which elevates this dessert to a whole other level. Peaches and bourbon together are perfection!

My Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream is truly a sweet taste of the south and it is the perfect ending to a summer barbecue supper. Enjoy!

In the south, nothing says summer like fresh, sweet, juicy, peaches. Since moving to North Carolina, I've had some of the best peaches of my life. If only peach season lasted longer! Since it's fleeting, when it's here, I make the best of it. I love to grill peaches, make peach jams and glazes, but most of all, I love peach cobbler. Peaches and bourbon are a match made in heaven. My peach cobbler recipe celebrates their perfect union. Warm peach cobbler with cool, creamy bourbon cream and sprig of fresh mint is the perfect way to cap off a wonderful summer supper.


  • 6 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole grain oats, plus a little more to sprinkle on top
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

Bourbon Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon


  • fresh mint springs


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the sliced peaches in a lightly greased 8 inch square baking dish.
  3. Stir together egg, sugar, flour, melted butter, and oats in a medium bowl until mixture is combined.
  4. Sprinkle topping over peaches, sprinkling extra oats on top of that before putting cobbler into oven to bake.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and bubbly.
  6. Let cobbler sit for 15 minutes to cool. Serve warm with Bourbon Cream and garnish with a fresh mint sprig, if desired.
  7. For Bourbon Cream: Combine cream, sugar, and bourbon in a bowl. Whip with mixer on high until stiff peaks form.


You can also make individual cobblers for a fun summer dining presentation. Use 6-8 (8oz) ramekins. Bake them for the same amount of time on a foil-lined baking sheet.

      We love cobbler at the farm too, Carol! You’re right, the beauty of a cobbler recipe is you can use whatever fruit is in season. Peach season this year in the south has been phenomenal. I can’t get enough of them! I hope you enjoy the recipe. It is my pleasure to share it with you!
