Triple Crust Peach Cobbler

Triple Crust Peach Cobbler is a delightful and indulgent dessert that features juicy peaches baked beneath layers of three different crusts: a buttery cake-like crust, a sweet biscuit-like crust, and a crunchy streusel topping. Here’s a recipe to guide you in making this delicious treat:

Ingredients:

For the Peach Filling:

  • 6 cups fresh or frozen peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cake-like Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk

For the Biscuit-like Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized ovenproof dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Toss gently until the peaches are well coated. Set aside to macerate while you prepare the crusts.
  3. For the cake-like crust, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter and milk, and stir until just combined. Set aside.
  4. For the biscuit-like crust, in another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the cold butter pieces and cut them into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk until the dough comes together. Set aside.
  5. For the streusel topping, combine the flour, sugar, and melted butter in a small bowl. Mix until crumbly. Set aside.
  6. Pour the peach filling into the greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  7. Drop spoonfuls of the cake-like crust batter over the peaches, spreading it out gently.
  8. Crumble the biscuit-like crust dough over the cake-like crust layer, creating a rough and crumbly texture.
  9. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the entire cobbler.
  10. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling around the edges.
  11. Remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve warm, and optionally, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Here are some additional details and tips about Triple Crust Peach Cobbler:

1. Choosing the Peaches: For the best flavor and texture, it’s ideal to use ripe, juicy peaches. Look for peaches that are firm but yield slightly to gentle pressure. If fresh peaches are not in season or not available, you can use frozen peaches. Just make sure to thaw and drain them before using.

2. Macerating the Peaches: Macerating the peaches with sugar, flour, lemon juice, and vanilla extract helps to draw out their natural juices and intensify their flavor. It also creates a lovely syrup that adds moisture to the cobbler.

3. Combining the Crusts: The Triple Crust Peach Cobbler gets its name from the three different crust layers. The cake-like crust is moist and tender, while the biscuit-like crust is slightly flaky. The streusel topping adds a delightful crunch. The combination of these crusts creates a textural contrast that enhances the overall eating experience.

4. Adjusting the Sweetness: The amount of sugar used in the peach filling and crusts can be adjusted to suit your taste preferences and the sweetness of the peaches. If your peaches are very sweet, you can reduce the amount of sugar in the filling. Similarly, if you prefer a less sweet cobbler, you can reduce the sugar in the crusts.

5. Serving and Accompaniments: Triple Crust Peach Cobbler is delicious on its own, but you can take it to the next level by serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. The cold creaminess of the ice cream or whipped cream pairs perfectly with the warm cobbler, creating a delightful flavor contrast.

6. Storing and Reheating: If you have leftovers, you can store the cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, place individual servings in the microwave for a short time until warmed through, or reheat the whole cobbler in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes.

7. Variations: While peaches are traditional, you can experiment with other fruits as well. Triple Crust Cobbler works well with other stone fruits such as plums, nectarines, or a combination of fruits. You can also try adding a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the peach filling for a warm and cozy flavor.

Triple Crust Peach Cobbler is a delightful dessert that showcases the natural sweetness of peaches and the three layers of crust.

It’s a perfect way to enjoy the summer bounty of fresh peaches or a delightful treat any time of the year.

Enjoy the triple delight of this Peach Cobbler, with its three layers of crust providing a variety of textures and flavors. The combination of juicy peaches and buttery, sweet crusts is sure to satisfy your dessert cravings!
