Peach Cobbler Cookies

My sister brought me fresh peaches one year, and we decided to make these fruity cookies. They also make fantastic ice cream sandwiches—just put some vanilla ice cream between two cookies for a delicious summer treat! —Anna Miller, Churdan, Iowa

      These cookies were delicious...especially with a scoop of ice cream sandwiched in between! A great way to use my homegrown peaches and something I'll be making again.

      Great fall cookie! I used a can of peaches and patted them dry and had no problems.

      Wonderful cookies! Followed recipe as written. Dough was not crumbly and was easy to work with. Family loved them!

      These are so good! Don’t give up on them if they seem crumbly. Once you mix in the peaches, the juice helps them have a little more moisture. Great change of pace from your regular cookies.

      These turned out beautiful and delish. We got giant peaches off of a truck, and only needed 1. Soooooo good..

      The dough was crumbly. I think 3 cups of flour sounds like a lot. They were just okay. Did not look like the picture. I won't make again.

      I tried these tonight... not sure where I went wrong, but the dough seemed like it was breadcrumbs... I had to add some water to get it to stick together, then they didn't turn out anything like the picture... I will try again and maybe add two eggs like the previous reviewer. I am just sad that I used 2 large southern peaches for this and they didn't work out.... We only get a couple of southern peaches in our store, then it's back to the yucky california ones until next season.... Long live the GA & SC Peaches!!!!

      I would like to know how many peaches you put in these cookies? And do you peel peaches first

      Very cake-like. Dough seemed dry and was hard to work with. I’ll try again but I’ll add two eggs rather than one and double the peaches.
