This easy skillet peach cobbler is the ultimate summer treat, combining juicy yellow peaches with buttery gluten-free biscuits. It's an extra-comforting dessert that tastes best warm from the oven with a cold scoop of ice cream on top! Made with one bowl and less than 30 minutes of prep time.

Cobbler Topping

  • 2 1/4 cups spoon and level (9 1/2 ounces) gluten-free all-purpose flour with xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup (1 5/8 ounces) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup (2 3/8 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup (8 1/2 ounces) buttermilk (preferably full-fat)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream, for brushing

Peach Filling

  • 10 yellow peaches
  • 3/4 cup (3 3/8 ounces) cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup (4 5/8 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup (5 ounces) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


Cobbler Topping

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease a 12" oven-safe skillet with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until well-combined. Add the butter and cut in with a pastry blender until the chunks are pea-sized and well-coated in the flour mixture. Pour in the buttermilk and fold in gently, just until the mixture comes together. If needed, use hands to lightly press mixture into a ball. Transfer to refrigerator to chill while prepping filling.

Peach Filling

  1. Place peaches directly into skillet OR in a separate large bowl. Sprinkle cornstarch, granulated sugar, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg on top. Use a spatula to gently toss together until peaches are evenly coated in the mixture, with no dry streaks remaining. If done in a separate bowl, transfer peach mixture to skillet in an even layer.

Assembling and Baking:

  1. Use a spoon or cookie/ice cream scoop to dollop cobbler dough over the peaches, covering the majority of the surface area. Brush dough with heavy cream before baking.
  2. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, until cobbler is golden-brown and juices are bubbling. Allow to cool briefly before serving.
  3. Serve warm, with whipped cream or ice cream.
