A few years ago I was in a ‘country’ store when I picked up a country cobbler packet. The recipe said ‘add fruit, one stick of butter, one cup of milk and bake at 375 degrees.’
The recipe was familiar. I grew up eating my grandmother’s cobbler recipe and it was simple: fruit, with one cup of flour, sugar and milk along with one stick of butter.
When I looked at the ingredients on the pack, I noticed that the only ingredients included were flour and sugar. One cup of flour and sugar and the price was around five dollars.
This recipe is simple and easy. You can use any fruit you like. Blackberries are my favorite (if you can find them), but peaches, strawberries or canned fruit toppings (like cherry) will work just as well.
I like to pack a little extra fruit in there, if possible. And you can double the recipe very easily. To keep it a little healthier, I often cut the butter down to about a ½ stick.
