Easy Peach Cobbler (with pie crust)

If you’re in the mood for an easy, quick peach cobbler, one loaded with warmth and spice, you’ve come to the right place! This recipe comes together easily, but it doesn’t feel like a “cheat” dessert. It tastes like you slaved over the stove for hours. This is truly one of the best peach cobblers I’ve had in a while!

It Starts With a Box

Easy Peach Cobbler from Out of the Box Baking.com

I have a confession to make. I’m not great with pies. It all comes down to the crust. I love my mom’s pie crust recipe, but I’m not great at it. It’s a little tough when I make it. (When I get to heaven maybe she’ll clue me in about where I went wrong.)

Here’s another confession: I’ve never used a boxed pie crust. Wasn’t sure I ever wanted to. But I decided it would be perfect for this quick recipe.

In you read my Apple Crisp post, you know that I’ve shared about the difference between a cobbler and a crisp. I made an amazing blackberry cobbler not too long ago using mom’s pie crust, but tonight I needed something faster than that. And, as luck would have it, I already had several cans of pie filling on hand, in a variety of flavors.

(Note: You could always use fresh peaches instead of pie filling. It’s your choice.)

Peaches and Spice and Everything Nice

I went with the can of peach pie filling because it’s one of the few I haven’t tried before. I know. Crazy, right? A baker who’s never made a peach cobbler or peach pie? Still, it’s true!

I had the filling. I had the crust. I had some spices on hand. I was ready to roll!

Maybe you’re ready to roll, too. Here’s what you’re going to need to make this easy peach cobbler. You will find the full printable recipe at the bottom of this post, but for now, this is what you’ll need:

Peach Cobbler Ingredients

These are simple ingredients. You’ve probably got most of them in your pantry now!

Easy Peach Cobbler from Out of the Box Baking.com
  • peach pie filling
  • ready-made pie crust (boxed)
  • cinnamon
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • granulated sugar
  • additional cinnamon to add to the sugar
  • chopped pecans (optional)
  • pinch of salt (optional)

I know. You’re probably looking at that last ingredient and thinking, “Wait? Pecans. . .in a cobbler?”

Here’s the thing: I was in the mood for cobbler but love the crunchy texture of a crisp. So I decided a few chopped pecans would satisfy that hankering. More about that later!

How to Make this Easy Peach Cobbler

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bring your boxed pie dough to room temperature and unroll on a floured surface.

Grease an 8×8″ baking dish (or casserole dish).

Add your peach pie filling to the prepared baking dish. (I thought about adding a bit of melted butter at this stage, but the pie filling was already pretty juicy!)

Sprinkle pie filling with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well.

Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the pie filling is bubbly. Bakes times will vary, depending on your oven.

Cool and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. (Warm cobbler is the best!) Talk about a delicious dessert! It’s perfect any time of year.

To store your cobbler cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Leftover peach cobbler is yummy, too! You can serve it cold or reheat in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Variations on this Recipe

Want to make this cobbler using canned peaches? Just add sugar and cornstarch to the juice and simmer until it thickens.

Fresh peaches are an option, too! Add a bit of apple juice, light brown sugar, and corn starch to thicken and sweeten your ripe peaches.

Feel free to use a homemade pie crust!

Not into pie crust? Use a sweet biscuit crust.

To impress your guests, bake this classic peach cobbler in a cast iron skillet. A dutch oven is also a great choice.

Other Cobblers to Enjoy

I hope you enjoyed this easy peach cobbler recipe. This is one of my favorite recipes. I can’t wait to try it again, possibly with a different flavor of pie filling. Maybe strawberry? Blueberry? They all sound so good!

You can easily turn this into a dump cake recipe by sprinkling a boxed cake mix on top of the pie filling. The cake like topping is more like a crisp than a cobbler.

If you like this recipe you’re sure to love my Apple Crisp recipe. It’s easy and tasty, too! (Apple cobbler would be tempting, too!)

Another great cobbler you’re going to want to add to your recipe box is my Yummy Blackberry Cobbler. I love it!

If you love fruity desserts (yum!) you’ll flip over my Pineapple Upside Down Cake! It’s super easy to make and starts with a boxed mix!

If you love warm fruit desserts you’ll love this Easy Pineapple Dump Cake Recipe from Southern Home Express.
