Use a Dutch Oven to Make Philmont Ranger Cobbler

Dutch ovens make baking at camp easy and expand your menu options. You can make biscuits, cornbread, pizza, lasagna, stew and a whole lot of desserts.

A Scout favorite is peach cobbler. Here’s how to make Philmont Ranger Cobbler:


  • 2 large (28-ounce) cans of peaches
  • 2 cups of dry biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Heat a Dutch oven over a bed of coals. Pour the juice from one can of peaches into the oven. Use the juice from the other can in place of water to stir into biscuit mix to make a dough. Put the peaches from both cans into the oven. Add the sugar and cinnamon, and bring to a boil.

Carefully drop spoonfuls of biscuit dough onto the hot peach mixture. Put the lid on the Dutch oven, and set the oven over 10-12 glowing briquettes. Place another 18-20 briquettes on the lid, and let the cobbler bake about 20 minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.
