Easy Cobbler

by sunshine on November 5, 2009

I love, love, love cobbler!  For the longest time I didn’t care for it (not having ever even tasting it because I thought the crust would be soggy…I know, I’m weird).  I finally tried it one day and have loved it ever since.

I tried this recipe from Lucky Leaf last night and was quite pleased.  I’m still on the hunt for a recipe where the crust is more like a pie crust (a bit crunchy).  All cobbler recipes I’ve ever tried the crust is soft (more cake-like).  Not that that’s not bad, my preference is just the more crunchy kind.  If you have a recipe that fits the bill, please share!

In the mean time I will continue to use this recipe!  I used blackberry pie filling and it was wonderful!  It’s super easy and quite tasty!

Looks fabulous! I got curious and had to figure out the crunchy thing. After a bit of searching, I think the answer is a fruit "crisp," the crunchy version of cobbler.

Here's one recipe I found online, although there are others that use oatmeal. This topping is similar to something I do at Thanksgiving with sweet potatoes. I think. I'll have to dig out my recipe.

I love fruit crisp as well…the two are quite different though. I don’t know if some people might actually put a pie crust on top of their cobbler…that is what I have heard from a couple of people. It’s about the only way I know that it would come out crunchy. I don’t even know if “crunchy” is the right word! (I’m talking about the way Bettye makes it at church-you may know how she does it!). I will have to try the recipe you gave me and see how it turns out! Thanks for doing the research!

My mom rolls out pie crust. She puts a layer of fruit, a layer of crust-lattice style, a layer of fruit and tops with crust(still lattice) and dots of butter. It's wonderful. She bakes any leftover pie crust separate to eat with the pie if you want.

So fun to find your site!
I love cobbler with Apple Pie in a Jar – if you've ever tried it?
Delicious!
I agree on the crusts, have to be just right! 🙂

Happy Day!

I've made that particular cobbler recipe for about 20 yrs now. One of my favorites! Everyone who tastes it loves it, and it's SO easy. The only problem is finding the LuckyLeaf Blkberry pie filling. I buy a case when I'm back home because I haven't found it in our new location yet. We once tried it with another brand of pie filling and threw it out–tasted weird compared to the LL brand.
