Peach Cobbler Cookies

I cannot stop raving about these peach cobbler cookies because wow are they good!

I’m a huge peach cobbler fan, and being able to get the same flavor with a whole lot less work is a huge win for me. And even if you aren’t a cobbler fan, these peach cookies might just change your mind.

Though these cookies are great for a summer treat when peaches are in season, the recipe calls for canned peaches so you can have them all year long. 

But if you are looking for great summer treats, you’ll have to try my strawberry hand pies too!

Tips Tricks and FAQs 

  • I make this peach cookie recipe two ways and I can never decide which one is the best. You can make it as it’s written here for puffy, cakey peach cobbler cookies. Or, you can leave out the baking powder and you’ll have more chewy cookies. Both are delicious!
  • You’ll want to reserve your peach juice when you drain your peaches so that you can use some of the juice for the icing. It packs such a punch of peach flavor that makes the icing extra yummy. Just be sure that you use peaches canned in juice, not in syrup. 
  • If you aren’t a glaze fan, you can try this variation. Before the cookies are baked, roll each dough ball in cinnamon sugar like you would for classic snickerdoodle cookies. The cinnamon sugar crust is like heaven on the outside of these peach cobbler cookies!

Storage

These peach cookies can be stored at room temperature for 4-5 days or in the fridge for about a week. Keep them in an airtight container or bag!
