Desserts - Pies, Cobblers, and Puddings

Southern Peach Cobbler

Mom didn’t have a recipe for peach cobbler, she just made it the same way her mom made it and it tasted great. Here is a slow cooker recipe I found that works great and is easier than Mom’s method.

Other fruit may be used in this recipe, like blackberries or apples, but you may need to adjust the amount of sweetener used.


5-6 cups peeled, sliced peaches (fresh or frozen)

1/3 cup granulated sugar or Splenda

2 cans (8 oz.) crescent rolls


  • Place peaches into large mixing bowl. 
  • Sprinkle the peaches with 1/3 cup sugar or Splenda and stir to gently coat.
  • Lightly coat 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • Unroll crescent roll dough from one can and spread it on bottom of slow cooker. Press dough to close seams. 
  • Spoon peaches and any juice into slow cooker.
  • Unroll crescent roll dough from second can and lay over peaches. Sprinkle top layer of dough with about 1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar or Splenda. 
  • Lay a double layer paper towel over the top of the cooker so that it overhangs sides and will stay in place when the cooker is covered. (This absorbs moisture and allows the top to brown).
  • Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or cook on low for 4 hours, until the peaches are tender and the top is lightly golden.
  • Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, a splash of heavy cream, or just by itself.
