ingredient notes & substitutions

ingredients needed to make peach cookies in bowls with labels.

Peaches: When peaches are in season, fresh, ripe peaches are best. You can also use frozen peaches when they are not in season!

Brown sugar: Light brown sugar is used in this recipe but dark brown sugar can be used as well.

Cream cheese: The addition of cream cheese gives these peach cookies a super soft texture that melts in your mouth when you eat them! I don’t recommend substituting it.

Cinnamon: Like in my cinnamon snickerdoodle cookies, the warm cinnamon flavor is a must with peach cobbler. Use ground cinnamon for the best results.

Step 4: Mix in the dry ingredients. Mix in the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined.

Cover the top of the bowl and chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm. This will make it easier to scoop!

Step 5: Roll in cinnamon sugar. Scoop the dough directly into the bowl of cinnamon sugar and toss to coat. Then place the dough ball onto the prepared baking sheet, with 1-2 inches of room between each cookie dough ball.

Step 6: Fill with the peaches. Use the back of a round measuring spoon to indent the center of the dough ball. Then fill the center with a heaping teaspoon of peach filling.

Chill the tray of cookie dough in the freezer for a minimum of 3-4 hours, overnight is best!

Step 7: Top with the cinnamon sugar crumb. Press a handful of the crumb topping on top of each cookie.

Bake the cookies spaced 2-3 inches apart. When the edges are a light golden brown, remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle them with more crumbs.

expert baking tips

  • Use a kitchen scale. Baking with a scale is much more accurate than cup measurements. To convert this recipe, click the “metric” button next to the ingredients title on the recipe card. If you do not have a scale, use a spoon to fluff the flour first, then spoon it into your measuring cup.
  • Don’t skip the chill time. While many cookie recipes require zero chilling time, this step is important for flavor development, texture improvement, and reduced spreading. All of these contribute to a cookie that is tender and well-rounded in flavor!
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream. To complete the peach cobbler flavor, serve these peach cookies with a scoop of ice cream for the most delicious summer treat!

Notes

*Measure your flour properly. This is my #1 baking tip! Do not ever scoop a measuring cup into your flour as this always leads to using too much flour. Instead, use the spoon-level method. This means fluffing the flour first, then spooning it into your measuring cup/spoon. For the BEST results, use a kitchen scale!*
Don’t skip the chill time. While many cookie recipes require zero chilling time, this step is important for flavor development, texture improvement, and reduced spreading. All of these contribute to a cookie that is tender and well-rounded in flavor!
