  • 3 (30 ounce cans) peaches in juices drained well
  • 1 large lemon zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cold, salted butter grated
  • 1 cup half and half


  • Preheat 25 briquettes.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss peach slices with lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and white sugar. Spread them out in a 12 inch (6 quart) cast iron dutch oven.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a cheese grater to grate butter into flour mixture and toss to combine.
  • Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter. Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of the peaches to form a nice cobbler crust.
  • Place the lid on the dutch oven and place the dutch oven on top of 8 briquettes. Place the other 17 briquettes in an even pattern on top of the lid.
  • Let cook, covered, 45-60 minutes until cobbler crust is lightly browned.
