This Peach Cobbler Cheesecake merges the classic flavors of a creamy New York style cheesecake with the decadence of a Southern peach cobbler filled with caramelized peaches and a buttery crumble! It is truly the ultimate decadent dessert. If you love all things peach cobbler, try my Southern Peach Cobbler and my Peach Cobbler Bread Pudding!
Disclosure: I partnered with Land O’ Lakes for this recipe post, but all opinions expressed here are my own. I am grateful for authentic partnerships like this.
There is one question I get asked more often than any other: what is your favorite dessert? The answer is plain and simple: Peach Cobbler. I mean, what’s not to love? Cobbler is smooth and sweet, yet crispy and crumbly. Caramelized peaches melt in the mouth with every bite and a buttery crumble explodes with spice. Top with a hefty scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ve got the perfect dessert.
For a long, long time, I have been convinced that this dreamy dessert could not get any better. But today, it has. Adding in a layer of creamy, tangy cheesecake takes this cobbler to the next level. Not only is the textural component outstanding but the flavors meld together in an unimaginably delicious way.
If you’re not drooling yet, you will be when you get a whiff of this bad boy in the oven!
PEACH COBBLER CHEESECAKE
Now, I’m sure that the term “fusion food” is one we’re all familiar with. Whenever used, we all think of savory Thai-Japanese fare or innovative Mexican-Korean munchies. I love the idea of two sets of unique flavors coming together to create something new and exciting.
Though it may not be as well known, baking is a large melting pot of history, culture and flavor. Most well-known baking recipes are a result of immigrants making use of newfound ingredients in unfamiliar territory.
Peach Cobbler and Cheesecake is truly a match made in heaven; classic New York Cheesecake meets an Old School Southern Peach Cobbler in this sweet concoction. This dessert is truly “fusion baking” at its finest. Every morsel is buttery, crunchy, sweet, creamy and fruity all at once. It doesn’t get much better than that.
HOW TO MAKE PEACH CHEESECAKE
This recipe calls for quite a few ingredients (and maybe just a little bit of mess) but, there are a few that make for an extra-special treat!
Let’s take an in-depth look at what we’ve got:
Peaches are our shining star in this recipe; they’re juicy, sweet and slightly tart. By cooking the slices in a sugary-spiced mixture, we layer in a to-die-for caramel-like flavor.
Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil
Made with only 3 simple ingredients (sweet cream, canola oil and salt), Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil is a great way to incorporate buttery goodness. I can always count on Land O’Lakes to provide quality products and maximum yumminess.
The addition of canola oil helps our crumb mixture to achieve the best crispy texture possible. No other butter product can do that!
A traditional cobbler crumb is made using oats, but this time around we are using shortbread. Using buttery shortbread crumbs allows us to closely mimic the crust of a classic cheesecake.
To achieve rich, thick creaminess and a full-bodied, balanced tartness in our cheesecake layer, we need sour cream. Just a little bit goes a long way.
Most desserts can be stored on the countertop, but not this one. Be sure to place the leftover wedges in an airtight container, then keep it in the fridge.
