With sweet baked peaches and savory ginger biscuits, this peach and ginger cobbler is the perfect summer dessert.
Serves: 1 cobbler
For the filling:
  • 4-5 large peaches, cut into large wedges
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger or ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
For the biscuit topping:
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 7 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8” by 8” square or 9” circular glass baking dish.
  2. Toss the peaches with the sugar, lemon juice, ginger and cornstarch. Stir and pour into the baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes while you prepare the biscuit dough.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ginger. Sprinkle the butter over the top and, with a pastry blender or your fingers, blend in the butter until the largest pieces are the size of small peas. Stir in the yogurt or buttermilk until the dough just comes together.
  4. Take the peaches out of the oven. Take a handful of the biscuit dough and form it into a rough sphere with your hands (don’t overwork the dough). Place it on top of the peaches. Repeat, leaving at least a half of an inch between each dough ball, until the peaches are covered. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfectly even; the biscuits will spread in the oven.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown. Let cool for at least ten minutes, then serve with whipped cream if desired.
