For the Peach Filling:

  • 6 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Pie Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup ice water (approx.)

For the Topping:

  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (for sprinkling)


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 2: Prepare the Pie Crust

  1. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, pulsing until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Divide the dough into two portions, shape each into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3: Prepare the Peach Filling

  1. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Toss gently until the peaches are evenly coated.

Step 4: Roll Out the Pie Crust

  1. On a floured surface, roll out one of the chilled pie crusts to fit a 9-inch pie dish.

Step 5: Assemble the Pie

  1. Gently place the rolled-out crust into the pie dish.
  2. Pour the peach filling into the pie crust.

Step 6: Add the Top Crust

  1. Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the peach filling.
  2. Trim the excess dough and crimp the edges to seal the pie.

Step 7: Ventilate the Crust

  1. Cut a few slits or create a decorative pattern in the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.

Step 8: Brush with Egg Wash

  1. Brush the top crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar for a golden finish.

Step 9: Bake to Perfection

  1. Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown, and the filling is bubbling.

Step 10: Cool and Serve

  1. Allow the Peach Cobbler Pie to cool for at least 2 hours before serving. This helps the filling set.
  2. Serve slices with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect Southern treat.


  • Ensure your peaches are ripe but still firm for the best texture in the filling.
  • If the edges of the pie crust start to brown too quickly, cover them with foil during the last part of the baking time.
  • Experiment with different spices in the filling, such as a hint of ginger or a dash of allspice, for added complexity.

This Southern Peach Cobbler Pie is more than a dessert; it’s a celebration of summer’s bounty. With its juicy peach filling and flaky crust, it’s a slice of Southern comfort that brings joy to any table. Share this delightful pie with loved ones and savor the flavors of the season.
