I couldn’t let August pass by without at least one last sweet peach recipe. This skillet brown sugar peach cobbler is one I’ve been wanting to share for a few years now but never got around to. It’s a classic peach cobbler but made extra delicious with a few special touches. After many rounds of testing, I can confidently say that this is the BEST peach cobbler. It’s heavy on the peach flavors, hinted with cinnamon throughout, has a caramel-like sauce, and the most delicious, sweet, buttery, brown sugar crust.

Every last spoonful is mouthwatering. I couldn’t think of a better dessert to send off the last full month of summer. It’s as close to perfect as it gets.

With today’s post, I am really excited to announce our new partnership with Vermont Creamery. You guys all know how much I love using their goat cheese and crème fraîche. But their Cultured Butter now has an extra special place in my kitchen. I know that might sound a little cheesy, but it’s true. Once you taste really GOOD butter, it’s hard to use anything else. And Vermont Creamery’s new line of Cultured Butter is without out a doubt, SO GOOD.

Unlike traditional butter, Vermont Creamery’s Cultured Butter is fermented for 20 hours then churned to 82% butterfat. This provides the butter with an incredibly rich taste and creamy texture. It has a delightful tang and notes of buttermilk and hazelnut. Perfect for everything from cooking, to baking, to slathering on your morning toast.

Aside from the deliciousness of their Cultured Butter, what I love most is that it’s made with fresh, high-quality cream. They use only 2 simple ingredients: cream and cultures (and sea salt if you’re using the salted butter). Using high-quality ingredients is so important to me. I love knowing that they use only high-quality cream sourced from Vermont family farms.

Obviously, I use butter throughout all of my cooking and baking. But I knew that a classic peach cobbler would really highlight the delicious flavor of Vermont Creamery’s Sea Salt Cultured Butter. And the best part? This cobbler could not be easier to make.

Here are all the details.

First up, you want to brown some of the butter in the bottom of a large, oven-safe skillet. Browning the butter gives it an even deeper, nuttier flavor, which I always find delicious with sweet peaches. Once you brown the butter, add the peaches, brown sugar, a splash of bourbon, and vanilla right into the skillet. At this point, you’ll already be smelling how delicious this cobbler will be. Yes, your anticipation will be rising.

Trust me, I know from experience.

Next, throw the skillet right into the oven. Bake the peaches for a bit to start the cooking process while you work on the topping. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, that’s not a problem, just brown the butter in the stove, then transfer the butter to a 9×13 baking dish. Then simply add the peaches, and continue on as directed!

Tip: Find yourself a good cast-iron skillet. They can be used for so much and are great for going from the stove-top, right to the oven, and then directly onto the dinner table…or dessert table in today’s case.

For the crust, I tried so many different recipes until I landed on something I loved. The crust is almost cookie-like…crisp on the edges, soft in the center, not cakey, hints with cinnamon, and very buttery. Sounds perfect, right? It is!

The ingredients are simple, just a simple mix up of flour, ground pecans, brown sugar, melted butter, and milk. The key is to use salted butter, which I always find adds a really special touch to pretty much everything. But especially when it comes to baking. My mom always uses salted butter and it’s something I do as well. The extra touch of salt leaves people asking for more…and of course, the recipe!

Dollop the batter over the peaches and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar. Then bake until the sauce bubbles up over the skillet and the crust is a deep golden brown. By now your kitchen is smelling amazing. And if you’re anything like me, you’re probably close to jumping up and down with excitement.

My favorite way to serve this cobbler? Family style, with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream right on top. There is truly nothing more delicious than eating this right out of the skillet.

Roll. Your. Eyes. Back. Delicious!

Tip: if you want to serve this warm to family friends on a summer night, prep the peaches before everyone arrives, then bake the cobbler while you enjoy your alfresco dinner. Once everyone is done eating, surprise them with a warm peach cobbler. It’s the perfect way to end an August summer night. Everyone will love you for it.

Also, since we’re talking on entertaining family and friends. One thing I love doing when entertaining outside is to bring the summer produce into my tablescape. Try using the fresh peaches you picked up at the market to make personalized place settings for everyone at your table. This is such an easy craft to do, but yet so pretty. And it really ties in the peach theme of this cobbler!

One final note, as we slowly move into fall, don’t be afraid to swap the peaches for crisp autumn apples. I’m already excited to do this once September hits!
