Grandma Willis’ Peach Cobbler

3 Aug

Peaches are one of our favorite summer fruits.

I love baking in the summertime because there are so many fruits to bake with. One of my favorite summer recipes is from Don’s Grandma Willis and I try to make it every summer at least once.

We visited Don’s grandparents in August of 1994 and had her Peach Cobbler there for the first time. I’ve made it ever since, and every time I do, we think of Grandma Willis.

I serve this with ice cream and/or whipped cream, whatever your preference is.



6-8 large peaches, peeled and sliced

2 and 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

3/4 to 1 cup sugar


1 cup all purpose flour

2 egg yolks

1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup sugar

2 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Combine peaches, cornstarch and sugar.

Pour into a greased 13×9 baking dish.

Combine all ingredients for crust EXCEPT egg whites in mixing bowl.

Gently fold egg whites into batter.

Spread over peaches.

Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and peaches are bubbly.

Yield: 12 servings
