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. :)
