Introduction

There are several ways to cut peaches for cobblers, and the method you choose will depend on the type of cobbler you’re making. If you’re making a traditional cobbler with a top and bottom crust, you’ll want to slice the peaches into thin wedges so that they cook evenly and fit well between the layers of dough. If you’re making a rustic cobbler with a biscuit or dumpling-style topping, you can simply cut the peaches into large chunks or slices. No matter which method you choose, be sure to start with ripe, fresh peaches for the best flavor and texture.

To slice peaches for a traditional cobbler:
1. Start by washing the peaches under cool running water.
2. Cut off one end of each peach, then slice the peach in half from top to bottom.
3. Twist the halves in opposite directions to release them from the pit. If the pit doesn’t release easily, use a small paring knife to cut it out.
4. Once the pit is removed, slice each peach half into 4-6 wedges, depending on their size.

What You Need

All you need to cut peaches for cobbler is a sharp knife and a cutting board. If you have a paring knife, that will work fine. Otherwise, any sharp knife will do.

Start by washing your peaches. Cut the peach in half around the pit. You can then remove the pit by gently twisting the two halves in opposite directions.

Once the pit is removed, cut each half of the peach into thin slices. The thinner the slices, the quicker they will cook.

Arrange the peach slices in your cobbler dish, and then top with cobbler batter or dough. Bake according to your recipe’s instructions.

Step-by-Step Guide

Nothing says summer like a fresh peach cobbler. Peaches are notorious for being tricky to cut, but with a little know-how, it’s easy to get them perfectly ripe and ready for baking. Here’s a step-by-step guide to cutting peaches for cobbler (or any other recipe).

1. First, find ripe peaches. The best way to do this is to softly squeeze the peach in the palm of your hand. If it gives to the touch, it’s ripe. If it’s too hard, it won’t be sweet and juicy. If it’s too soft, it will be mushy.

2. Cut off one end of the peach and twist it to remove the pit.

3. Cut the peach into small pieces, about 1-inch cubes. You can also slice the peaches if you prefer.

4. Add the prepared peaches to your cobbler recipe and bake as directed!
