1948 Old Style Peach Cobbler

The 1947 recipe for “Old Style Peach Cobbler” that I think I might even enjoy today with a few minor modifications…


  • 2 1/2 cups sliced canned cling peaches
  • 3/4 cup canned cling peach syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • Few grains salt


  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup prepared biscuit mix (or your own biscuit recipe)
  • 1/3 cup cultured sour cream
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. milk (if needed)
  • Sweet or sour cream for topping


Place peaches in bottom of a 1-quart casserole. Mix peach syrup, brown sugar, cornstarch and salt. Pour over peaches. Set casserole in hot oven (425˚) while mixing dough. Stir sugar and soda into biscuit mix. Add cream and milk to make soft dough; mix lightly. Place by spoonfuls on top of hot peaches. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until well browned. Serve warm with sweet or sour cream. Serves 6 to 8.
