These Peach Cobbler Cookies are a delicious brown sugar cinnamon cookie that are filled with freshly diced peaches, a delicious streusel and vanilla icing. They do not require any dough chilling time, and can be. made in roughly 20 minutes.
You truly can’t beat summer peaches – fresh, juicy, and sweet. I love peach pie, but honestly, I don’t love making pies. They take too long, in my opinion. I guess I need to work on my patience :). Also, eating cookies is much easier for me at this point in my life. I can grab a cookie and eat it on the go as I chase my kids around the house. A piece of pie, wouldn’t exactly work in that circumstance!
These Peach Cobbler Cookies are the best of both worlds. You get all the delicious flavors of peach cobbler in a handheld cookie. Plus they take only a fraction of the time. As with most of my cookie recipes, the dough does not need to be chilled.
Here’s what you need to know…
First of all, please note, these cookies are SOFT. They are not like a crispy chocolate chip cookie, so if you don’t like soft cookies, then these may not be your kind of cookie. I recommend storing the cookies in the refrigerator, which helps them stay firm. Moving on, it’s important to cream/mix the butter and sugar for several minutes until light and fluffy. This helps give the cookie structure, and helps prevent it from just baking flat. These cookies aren’t super thick, but they do have some structure to them.
Once the butter and sugar are creamed together, you’ll mix in the egg until combined, then add in the dry ingredients just until combined. Make sure you don’t overmix the dough at this point. Fold the peaches into the dough by hand. This recipe makes roughly 9 cookies. Scoop the cookie dough by 1 1/2 tablespoon measurements.
Next you’ll make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, using a fork, mix together the cinnamon, flour, sugar and butter, until crumbly in texture.
Evenly divide streusel over cookies, then bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. I took my cookies out around 10 minutes. They finish cooking as they cool on the cookie sheet and will firm up after completely cooling. Once the cookies are completely cool, make the icing. Whisk together the icing ingredients, then drizzle over the cookies.Print
