Mixed fruit cobbler recipe

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

A cobbler is an American fruit pie that’s usually made with fresh fruit or berries such as apples, peaches, blueberries or cherries. The fruit or berries are covered with a thick, undulating layer of dough that gets a lovely crust when baked. The cobbler is soft and juicy but crunchy on top. The dough is a mixture of crumble and sponge cake.
