Summer Ale Peach Cobbler

Nothing says summer better than juicy, delicious peaches!


  • For the biscuit topping -
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup summer ale or other beer
  • 1/3 cup dry powdered milk
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • For the filling -
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 5 medium peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1/2 cup summer ale or other beer


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Whisk together the egg yolk, vanilla, beer, and dry powdered milk in a small bowl. Add to the butter/flour mixture and stir until the dough just comes together. Chill while you prepare the filling.
  • In a 9-inch round pie plate or 8-inch square baking dish, spread the sliced peaches and blueberries.
  • Combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon zest in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the fruit, then drizzle the beer over the surface of the fruit.
  • Remove the biscuit dough from the refrigerator and pat it out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick. It will be sticky, so add up to 1/2 cup of flour if it's too sticky to work with. Using a biscuit cutter, slice out rounds of dough and top the entire surface of the pan with them.
  • Bake until the biscuits are golden and the fruit is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, then serve.
