Take advantage of sweet summer peaches with our delicious cobbler. It's even more flavorful when made with white-variety peaches.


6 medium peach(es), peeled, pitted and sliced

6 1/3 Tbsp sugar, divided

1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup(s) all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp table salt

3 Tbsp reduced-calorie margarine
1/2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.

  • In a large saucepan, combine peaches, 1/3 cup of sugar (5 1/3 tablespoons), cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon; toss to coat peaches. Set pan over medium heat and bring to a boil; cook until mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat; transfer mixture to an 8-inch square baking pan.

  • To make topping, combine flour, remaining tablespoon of sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Work in margarine with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir until flour mixture is evenly moistened.

  • Drop 8 tablespoons of topping mixture over peach mixture. Bake until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces and serve.


  • You can enhance the peach flavor of this recipe by swapping 1 teaspoon of almond extract for the lemon juice. And stir 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds into the topping, if desired (does not affect POINTS value).

Chef Tips

  • We renovated Peach Cobbler by:
    • Reducing the amount of sugar in the filling.

    • Using reduced-calorie margarine in the topping instead of butter and cutting back on the total amount.

    • Using fat-free milk in the topping instead of whole milk.
