Nectarine Cobbler

I love fresh nectarines so much. A lot more than peaches. But they just don’t get the same love. Like have you ever seen canned nectarines? Or frozen ones? To me, they are all the best parts of peaches without the weird fuzzy peel. So when I see them ripe this time of year…I go crazy on them.

Nectarine Cobbler


  • 5 cups sliced nectarines (6 to 8)
  • ½ cup cool water
  • 1/3 cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar or cup for cup sugar substitute
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, diced
  • ½ cup milk


Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly oil a 9×13″ baking dish.

In a large sauce pot combine the water, brown sugar, cornstarch, butter and cinnamon, whisk together. Stir in the nectarine slices gently. Cook over medium heat, about 10 minutes, until thickened and bubbly, stirring often with a spatula.

Meanwhile in a small mixing bowl work the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers until crumbly. Stir in the milk.

Spread the hot nectarine mixture into the dish. Drop the dough onto it in small blobs.

Bake for 40 minutes.
