Grilled Peach Cobbler is summery and fresh, making the most of the seasonal fruit and grilling season! The entire recipe comes together in a cast iron skillet, and can even be made straight on the campfire.

I can smell fall coming around the corner (primarily because I’m putting cinnamon oil in my diffuser right now…) but I’m still on such a peach high.

Something about being pregnant has made peaches taste even more amazing than years before, so I am making all the peach things for the rest of the month (as you will see next week!). 

Before you know it, we will all be in pumpkin spice mode, peach season will be over, and I will have to satisfy my peach loving taste buds with something else.

I’ve been bringing home an insane amount of peaches each week to use in everything from dessert to mains to sauces to drinks. 

But a simple peach cobbler is forever and always my favorite. The combination of fresh peaches, brown sugar, and butter, with a buttery biscuit topping is something we can all gather around to enjoy throughout the summer.

This classic version is made even better, because it’s thrown on the grill. Grilling is a must this time of year, if only to save your house from overheating. So, while you are making dinner on the grill, throw dessert on there too!

this recipe’s must-haves

This recipe is super simple and requires so few tools, it’s downright silly. You will need one of your large mixing bowls to make the peach base of the cobbler and also to make the biscuit topping. 

Then all you need is your favorite cast iron skillet (like this Lodge cast iron skillet if you are in the market for a new one!) and a grill (like this Traeger grill which is my forever favorite).

Make Peach Base

To start, I like to grill my peaches because it gives you an added depth of flavor! Simply cut the peaches in half and throw them on the grill for about 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. 

Slice up the grilled peaches when they are cool enough to handle and add to a bowl with sugar, flour, and spices. Stir it all up to combine and add to your cast-iron skillet.

Grill

Top the peach mixture with small pieces of butter all over. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and grill, covered, until the filling is bubbling and hot, about 15 minutes.

Make Topping

While the peaches are grilled, make the biscuit topping by mixing together flour, sugar, and baking powder. Make a little well in the center and add the cream and melted butter to it. Stir everything together until it all comes together.

Grill Again

Remove the foil from the skillet and dollop the dough mixture on top of the peaches. Cover the grill and grill until the biscuits are browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. I love to serve mine with vanilla ice cream on top, straight out of the skillet!
