- Peaches, sliced - the best thing about this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen peaches.
- Granulated white sugar, divided - sugar sweetens the peaches and helps make a nice syrupy sauce.
- Cornstarch - this will thicken the delectable sauce the peaches make.
- Nutmeg (optional, but our secret ingredient to elevate the recipe)
- Vanilla extract - vanilla brings all the ingredients together. We recommend pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Vanilla ice cream for serving

Fruit Cobbler Variations
- You can easily make this crock-pot peach cobbler recipe into a mixed fruit cobbler by adding your favorite fruits. Try adding raspberries, blueberries, or even diced apples. We love a blueberry peach variation!
- For a twist on the classic dessert, try using spiced rum or bourbon in place of the vanilla extract. The alcohol will cook out as the cobbler cooks, leaving behind a delicious flavor that's perfect with ice cream.
Step By Step Instructions
A simple recipe, this crock pot peach cobbler is so effortless to put together in just a few minutes, and then it's left to do its thing while you do yours. You use simple pantry ingredients. No cake mix here!
Step One - Lightly coat a 6-quart crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
Place the peaches, ¼ cup granulated sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, and vanilla extract in the crock pot and stir to combine.
In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining 1 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then, sprinkle the mixture evenly over the peaches.
Top the mixture with the butter slices.
Place a paper towel or dishcloth over the crock pot so that it overhangs the sides, and cover it with the lid. Cook for 2-3 hours on high or 4 hours on low or until the peaches are tender and the top is golden brown.
Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
Hint: to make sure your dessert is at the perfect temperature, leave your slow cooker on the warm setting until ready to serve it.
These tips will ensure that your dessert turns out perfect every time!
- PEACHES - Be sure to use fresh, ripe peaches for the best flavor. If you can't find fresh peaches, you can use the same amount of frozen peaches. You don't need to defrost them before adding them to the crock pot.
- HOW TO PREP FRESH PEACHES - If using fresh peaches, you'll want to remove their skin. Here's the easiest way. Boil a large pot of water, large enough to submerge your peaches. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer. Lower peaches into the water and let them blanch/soak for about 30 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the peaches into a bowl full of ice water to cool. Now the skin will easily slide off with your fingers.
- SUGAR - You can substitute half of the white sugar for brown sugar to give your cobbler a hint of caramel flavor.
- To help the top of your cobbler crisp beautifully, you'll want to place a paper towel or clean dishcloth over the top to absorb the excess moisture and help the top of your cobbler to crisp up nicely.
If you're looking for a little extra crunch, top your cobbler with chopped pecans or walnuts. For a fun presentation, serve the cobbler in mason jars and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This is a wonderful 4th of July Slow Cooker Dessert since it cooks while you're enjoying the festivities!

REFRIGERATOR - This crock pot peach cobbler is best served fresh, but you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
We don't recommend freezing leftovers as the peaches and cookie-like topping will become mushy when thawed.
No matter how you make it, this slow-cooker peach cobbler will be a hit with friends and family!
Using a paper towel or dishcloth under the lid of your crock pot to catch the excess moisture will ensure a nice crisp topping on your cobbler.
Yes, you can use canned peaches to make crock pot peach cobbler. However, make sure to drain them before adding them to the crock pot. Also, canned peaches are often very sweet, so you may want to reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe.
This recipe uses a 6-quart slow cooker (affiliate link).
