Oh cobbler, how I love thee!

Salaaaaam ya'll! Let's talk about cobbler. Basically it's the lazy-man's pie, sweet biscuits, an easy way to feed sweets to a crowd and use up ripe fruit. In this day and age, I use canned fruit. I just don't have the patience (or usually money!) to buy a bushel of fresh peaches, stand up in the kitchen and peel and pit those babies. So canned or frozen is my go-to; use what works for you. :)
When I went to visit Cap'n this last time I made him a blueberry cobbler. I actually brought a bag of frozen blueberries into his country. I hope I wasn't circumventing customs but it wasn't anything you could plant and trust me, we ate it ALL.

It was delicious. It was warm and gooey and crusty and sweet. Trust me when I say the corner is prime real estate in cobblers as well. I think a cobbler pan should be in an octagonal shape so everybody can have a chance! ;)

I'll give you my recipe but I got it years ago from a Taste of Home magazine. It was a recipe by a lady named Mattie from South Carolina. Allah bless her soul; I say a prayer for her everytime I make this. It's brought a lot of happiness and yummy dinners to my family so I like to be thankful for those who pass on their secrets.

Trust me, follow it exact as it says, do NOT deviate and you will be left with a yummy, decadent peach (or blueberry or blackberry or cherry) delight. :)

Here is the link for the recipe: Mattie's delicious peach cobbler. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we have!

I've been looking for a good cobbler recipe and this one sounds delicious. If I were going to use blueberries, would I use 4 cups of them (like it says 4 cups of peach slices)?
P.S. I know you don't know me but I found your blog a while ago through my friend's blog. It's good to see you back blogging. :o)

Hi there! I would use the same but don't stress if you end up having a bit less. The blueberries will pack tighter and I am notorious for not measuring now that I've gotten better at cooking! ;) I usually use one standard-size bag of frozen blueberries for this; you want enough fruit to put an even layer over the top of the batter. It will sink down a bit as you place it but just go in order and you'll know when you have covered it.

I hope it works well for you and thanks for the well-wishes. :)
