Happy Fourth of July, friends! Today, in true roundup-form, I wanted to share some of my favorite peach dishes. Hope you find something that floats your boat!
1950s Peach Cobbler. This is my maternal grandmother’s ridiculously delicious recipe. It’s a cinch to make — all you need is a can of peaches and a pancake-like batter! Included in the video recipe are some fond memories of my grandmother, Margaret Thelma DeVaul. She was a character!
Rustic Peach Galette. Fresh summer peaches partially enclosed in French all-butter pastry dough — what’s not to love about this rustic dessert? One bite and you’ll be hooked, just as I was.
Blueberry-Peach Buckle. Think of juicy blueberries and sweet dicings of peach, basking contentedly beneath a crisp, buttery lid. No special equipment required. All you need is a bowl, a whisk, and a baking dish.
Summer Salad with Tomatoes, Peaches, Basil and Burrata. This salad was inspired by a similar one I ordered at Club Helsinki in Hudson, New York. It’s a tangle of ripe tomatoes and juicy peaches, all dressed up with red wine vinegar, ribbons of basil, and clouds of creamy burrata cheese. Don’t make me beg you to try it.
Perfect Peach Pie. My mother made this peachy bliss every summer when I was a kid. I love the simple ingredients — just peaches, sugar, and a few spices, all nestled between two layers of flaky French pastry dough. It’s a pie that says “eat me.”
Peach Streusel Pie. Local peaches piled onto a French pastry crust, and topped with sweet, buttery streusel. Do I have your attention?
Blueberry-Peach Cobbler. This old-fashioned dessert plays all the right notes for me. It’s a sexy symphony of fresh blueberries and peaches, baked beneath “cobblestones” of slightly-sweetened biscuit dough. I can’t imagine a prettier finish for a mid-summer dinner party.
I’ll stop there, lest I throw you into a peach frenzy. Hope you find a few new things to try!

Hi Kevin, I really enjoyed watch the video… but I have been all over your website and can’t seem to find the written (printable) recipe for the 1950’s peach cobbler. Can you send me a link? This is what my grandmother used to make, but she called it “Peach Kuchen” (she was German). And she always added sour cream to it, so I’m going to try that… but first I’d like the recipe! Thanks so much…. Love your weekly postings!

Hi Kathe – I’m post a printable version of the 1950s Peach Cobber soon. Meantime, the recipe is written out under the description box below the video. Your grandmother’s Peach Kuchen with sour cream sounds wonderful!
The Summer Salad is my personal favorite. It looks delicious and easy to prepare. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing these awesome recipes Kevin!
