Bourbon Peach Cobbler

By Vickie Chynoweth


• 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice (one lemon)

• 1/2 teaspoon Bourbon (or vanilla extract)

• 4-5 medium sized peaches peeled and sliced

• 3 tablespoons cornstarch

• 1/4 cup brown sugar


• 1 cup all-purpose flour

• 1 teaspoon Bourbon (or vanilla extract)

• 1/2 cup brown sugar

• 1 tablespoon minced crystallized ginger

• 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter

• 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

• 1 teaspoon baking powder

Bourbon sauce

• 1/4 cup unsalted butter

• 3 tablespoon heavy cream

• 1/2 cup granulated sugar

• 2 tablespoon Bourbon


Preheat oven 350 degrees. Butter a 13-inch by 9-inch baking dish.

Cobbler: Combine all cobbler ingredients in a mixing bowl, stirring until peaches are coated. Pour into prepared baking dish.

Topping: Combine flour, sugar, butter, Bourbon and baking powder. Mix until crumbly and dough holds together when pinched with two fingers. Mix in crystallized ginger and pecans. Crumble topping dough over the top of the peaches. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and it bubbles around the edges. Let it cool 15 minutes before serving.

Bourbon sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in remaining ingredients. Simmer, stirring frequently until thickened and sugar has melted, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly and pour over each serving. Top with whipped cream or ice cream. Best if served warm.
