A Peach Paradise: Triple-Crust Peach Cobbler

Triple Crust Peach Cobbler

Calling all peach lovers! This Triple-Crust Peach Cobbler is a celebration of everyone's favorite summer fruit, enveloped in a buttery and flaky crust. It's a dessert dream come true, featuring a symphony of textures and flavors. Perfectly ripe peaches nestled in a sweet filling are sandwiched between layers of golden brown, homemade pie crust.

This recipe uses a convenient pie crust mix for ease, but the results are anything but ordinary. So, preheat your oven and get ready to bake a masterpiece!


  • The Flaky Foundation:
    • 3 Packages (11 ounces each) Betty Crocker™️ pie crust mix - This pre-made mix ensures a quick and easy crust preparation.
    • 1 cup cold water - This activates the dry ingredients in the pie crust mix to form a dough.
  • The Sweet and Juicy Filling:
    • 1 ½ cups sugar - Provides sweetness and helps create a delightful filling consistency.
    • ¾ cup melted butter or ghee - Melted butter adds richness and flavor to the filling. Ghee can be used as a substitute for those who are lactose intolerant.
    • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg - Warm and fragrant nutmeg adds a touch of complexity to the filling.
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon - Cinnamon is a classic pairing with peaches, enhancing their natural sweetness.
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract - Vanilla extract adds a touch of sweetness and a well-rounded flavor profile.
    • 2 teaspoons lemon extract - A hint of lemon extract brightens the flavors and adds a delightful citrusy touch.
    • 2 cans (29 ounces each) chopped peaches in syrup, undrained - These canned peaches are the star of the show! The syrup adds extra sweetness and moisture to the filling.


  1. Preheating for Perfection: Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). This ensures the crust bakes evenly and becomes perfectly golden brown.
  2. Creating the First Crust Layer: In a medium bowl, combine one package of the pie crust mix with ⅓ cup of cold water. Stir until a dough ball forms. Flatten the dough ball into a rectangle roughly 11 x 8 inches.
  3. Cutting the Crust Strips: Using a knife, cut the flattened dough rectangle into 4 even strips, each measuring approximately 11 x 2 inches.
  4. Baking the First Crust Layer: Arrange the dough strips on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving a little space between them for spreading. Bake the strips for 17 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Set the baked strips aside to cool slightly.
  5. Preparing the Second Crust Layer: In another bowl, combine another package of the pie crust mix with another ⅓ cup of cold water. Stir until a dough ball forms. Flatten the dough ball into a larger rectangle large enough to fit the bottom and sides of an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish. Gently press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the dish. Set aside.
  6. Making the Luscious Filling: In a large bowl, combine the sugar, melted butter, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, lemon extract, and the undrained canned peaches. Stir everything together until well combined.
  7. Assembling the Cobbler: Pour half of the peach mixture into the prepared baking dish with the second crust layer.
  8. Adding the First Crust Layer Strips: Arrange the 4 baked dough strips (from step 3) in a lattice pattern on top of the peach filling in the baking dish.
  9. Adding the Remaining Filling: Carefully pour the remaining half of the peach mixture over the arranged dough strips.
  10. Creating the Third Crust Layer: The final touch! Combine the remaining package of pie crust mix with the last ⅓ cup of cold water. Stir until a dough ball forms. Flatten the dough ball and use it to create a top crust for the cobbler. You can make a solid crust or cut out designs for a decorative touch.
  11. Baking to Golden Perfection: Place the top crust on the cobbler, sealing the edges to the bottom crust. Crimp the edges decoratively if desired. Bake the cobbler for 1 hour, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  12. Serving Up Sweet Bliss: Let the cobbler cool slightly before serving. Enjoy this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra decadent treat!
