    Peach cobbler cinnamon rolls are a labor of love and perfect for special occasion brunches meant to impress. Serve them as a centerpiece alongside savory brunch fare like bacon, sausage and quiche Lorraine.

    You could also present them as a dessert-for-brunch with a piping hot cup of coffee or plenty of mimosas to wash them down!

    Peach cobbler cinnamon rolls The peach cobbler component of this recipe functions as a topping for the cinnamon rolls, so crushed biscoff cookies are used in place of a traditional cobbler biscuit to create textural contrast. Biscoff cookies are filled with warming spices that work beautifully with the peach and cinnamon, and will save you a ton of time without sacrificing on quality.

    What You Need to Make Peach Cobbler Cinnamon Rolls

    To make peach cobbler cinnamon rolls, you’ll need a handful of pantry staples, active dry yeast, milk, butter, peach preserves, cream cheese for the frosting, and canned peaches and biscoff cookies for the cobbler topping. If you can’t find biscoff cookies, regular shortbread cookies or plain sugar cookies can easily be used as an alternative.

    The recipe uses bread flour to ensure a soft dough, though all-purpose flour can be used as well. If you opt to use all-purpose flour, start with 3 ½ cups and add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time as needed.

    How To Make Peach Cobbler Cinnamon Rolls

    Lightly grease a large mixing bowl with butter and set aside.

    In a separate bowl, add in bread flour, ¼ cup +1 tbsp sugar and the salt. Whisk thoroughly to combine and set aside.

    Heat milk to 100-105F, then pour into a separate large mixing bowl. Add in yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar and stir to dissolve. Let the yeast activate for 5-10 minutes. Once the milk starts to bubble and froth, it’s ready.

    Add the room temperature eggs and melted butter to the activated yeast mixture and whisk until combined.

    Gradually add the flour mixture to the milk mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, and use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix. When a dough starts to form and about ¾ of the flour has been added, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.

    Forming a dough

    Sprinkle the remaining flour over the top of the dough, and knead by hand until the dough is soft, pliable and slightly tacky. About 10 minutes.

    Sprinkling flour over the top

    Shape the dough into a ball and transfer to the prepared mixing bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap, then place the bowl in a cold oven with the light turned on. Let the dough proof for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.

    While the dough is proofing, whisk together the brown sugar and cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Line a 9×13 inch baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

    When the dough is done proofing, punch it down and turn it out onto a moderately floured work surface. Lightly sprinkle the top of the dough with flour, then use your hands to form the dough into a rectangle shape. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a large rectangular slab that’s approximately ¼ – ½ inch thick.

    Spread the softened butter across the entire surface area of the dough, stopping just short of the edges. Spoon the peach preserves over the butter, and use a spatula to smooth it out so the peach preserves and butter are layered on top of each other.

    Spreading peach preserves

    Generously sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the butter and preserves, then press the mixture into the butter and preserves so it adheres.

    Gently but tightly roll up the long edge of the rectangle until it forms a large log. When you reach the opposite end of the dough, press lightly to seal the edges. If the ends have tapered, cut them off to create an even cylinder.

    Forming a dough log

    Slide a large piece of unscented dental floss underneath the dough until you reach the middle of the log. Grip the dental floss on either side of the dough, then cross the floss ends and pull down to the counter to create a clean cut. Using this same motion, cut out 9 rounds that are approximately 2 inches thick. Transfer the rounds to the prepared baking dish.

    Cutting dough rounds

    Cover the baking dish with a clean kitchen towel, and place the baking dish in a warm corner of the kitchen. Proof again for 45 minutes to an hour, or until the cinnamon rolls are doubled in size.

    Proofing cinnamon rolls

    While the cinnamon rolls are proofing, heat the oven to 350F, then make the frosting. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together cream cheese, milk and powdered sugar until homogenous and set aside.

    Once the cinnamon rolls are proofed, bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes, then turn the pan 180 degrees and bake for another 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.

    While the cinnamon rolls are baking, make the cobbler topping.

    Making the cobbler topping

    In a small saucepan, combine the drained canned peaches, butter, sugar, brown sugar and salt. Gently stir to combine. Place the saucepan over medium-low heat and cook until the sugar dissolves, the butter is melted, and a syrup starts to form. About 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest until ready to use.

    When the cinnamon rolls are ready, remove them from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

    Spread the icing over the cooled cinnamon rolls, then top each cinnamon roll with a heaping tablespoon of the peach cobbler mixture. Sprinkle the crushed biscoff cookies over the top of the cinnamon rolls.

    For easy removal, use a serrated knife to separate the cinnamon rolls.

    Tips:

    • This recipe calls for canned peaches to make the fruit portion of the cobbler, as they are more consistent with their texture and flavor. The peaches should be drained, but not rinsed, and if any pieces are particularly large, feel free to dice them into smaller chunks. If you prefer using fresh peaches, go for it! Just make sure the peaches aren’t overripe so they don’t fall apart when cooked with the butter and sugar.
    • To cut the dough into rounds without squashing the layers, a large piece of unscented dental floss is used to create a clean cut. If you prefer not to use dental floss, you can use a serrated knife instead, but take extra care when cutting so the dough doesn’t flatten.
    Is cobbler the same as crumble?

    Cobblers and crumbles are not the same, though they both typically go on top of stewed or baked fruit. Cobblers are made with a dough topping such as a biscuit or shortbread, while crumbles are streusel-like topping that is crumbled over the fruit before baking.

    Does cinnamon go well with peaches?

    Yes! Though they are an unlikely match associated with different seasons, peaches and cinnamon are an excellent combination.

    Can I make peach cobbler cinnamon rolls in advance?

    It’s best to serve peach cobbler cinnamon rolls the day they are made, but the individual components can be prepped in advance and stored for later use. The cinnamon rolls can be made, shaped, and tightly covered the night before, then stored unbaked in the fridge for up to 12 hours. Let them come to room temperature before baking. Likewise, the peach cobbler topping can be stored in the fridge overnight and gently warmed before use.
