Nothing says summer like peaches. And of course, it wouldn’t be summertime without some delicious peach cobbler. Easy peach cobbler is what summer recipe dreams are made of, and this dessert is a must-make! There are many ways to prepare peach cobbler, but our version is a perfect marriage of a sweet cake and a biscuit all wrapped up into one, a sweet cake-like biscuit.
You can easily make it from scratch using our Pie Crust mix and fresh peaches. The tangy lemon and almond flavors pair perfectly with the sweet peaches and our easy homemade gluten-free biscuit.
Don't have any peaches? Or they're not in season? Don’t fret. You can make this with canned peach slices without sacrificing flavor. With our easy Pie Crust mix, you're using real ingredients -- and this is what I believe makes this the best gluten-free cobbler ever!
