Recipe Tips

Make sure you let the cookie dough chill. Chilling the cookie dough before popping them in the oven will help get a soft and chewy cookie.

Do not overmix the sugar and butter. If you mix the brown sugar and butter or white sugar and butter too much, it will add to much air to the mixture. Too much air in the cookie dough causes them to spread out and become thin instead of thick

For a gooey peach cobbler filling, slightly undercook the peach mixture before spooning it onto the cookies.

Customize your cookies by adding a sprinkle of chopped nuts or a dollop of whipped cream on top before serving.

How To Make thick Cookies

Use a cookie scoop to roll the cookie batter into dough balls. Place the dough balls out on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Do not press the cookie dough balls down! Just add enough space between each cookie, and bake them in the oven.

Once the baked cookies come out, do not press them down with a spoon, just allow the air to escape naturally. This peach cobbler cookie recipe is a success when the cookies are nice and fluffy!
