Peach Cobbler Ring

So when presented, this’ll look a bit like a gear. Or a flower. I guess. I’m gonna go with gear.

Peach Cobbler Ring


  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk


  • 2 Tbsp. soft butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh diced peaches

For dough, sift dry ingredients together; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk, all at once; stir to form a soft dough. Turn out on lightly floured board and knead 6 to 8 times. Roll into an 18″ x 9″ rectangle.

To fill, spread dough with butter. Sprinkle with mixture of brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; cover with peaches.

Roll up like a jelly roll. Place on ungreased baking sheet and form into a circle. Make slits from outside edge of circle almost to center every 2″. Turn each cut on its side. Brush with butter. Bake in a hot oven, 400 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm, with cream, and spoon sliced peaches over the top.
