The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Okay- cobbler fans....

How do you make your cobblers? Is it with a bisquick type topping, or like pie dough? My mom would always use what I considered her pie dough recipe and would have a bottom crust on her cobblers and then strips of dough in a lattice fashion on top. You could see the fruit bubbling through the crust!! I have also tried making cobblers with a bisquik topping, and although good-just not like my mom used to make!! |
How do you make yours??
Well, Pinterest must be watching our board

Used to have a great recipe for Peach Cobbler, bit I can't find it anywhere. The one I've been making is putting 3 cans of sliced peaches in 9x13 pan.....sprinkle yellow cake mix over the top....pour 1 stick melted over that and bake. The last time I made it, we didn't care for it all that much. Soooo, I'm ooking for a new recipe.|

put fruit in cobbler dish, mix together 1 cup |
milk, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup self rising flour and pour over the top, and the pour one melted stick of butter on the top and bake on 350 until browned and bubbly. growing up, i always asked for a blackberry cobbler instead of a birthday cake, with ice cream on top. makes me think of mom.
*sigh* I adore Blackberry Cobbler too

I liked it best when I was growing up because I got it less often but since I have been on my own Peach is my comfort food since it was a staple. I never really cared much for the strawberry cobbler that was Mama's favorite so it was never comfort food, although smelling strawberry anything baking brings back comfortable feelings. |

my grandmother would make it the way you describe. If family dropped by her go to was what she called Lazy Cobbler. Luckily my mother always stuck to the Lazy Cobbler because I wasn't a big fan of the other kind. |
Lazy Cobbler (Or what I call the one of everything)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt one stick of butter in a deep oven proof pan.
1 cup flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
Mix well. In the meantime heat 1 quart of peaches (or apples, berries, cherries, plums or other fruit and a large can of fruit in juice from the store will do or use a 16 oz bag of frozen and add about a cup of water. Sweeten to taste and boil for a few minutes until the water becomes juice).
Pour fruit over the batter, DO NOT STIR. Cook until the batter comes to the top and becomes golden brown (usually 45-60 minutes). If making apple cobbler add 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon depending on how spicy you like it.
Peach cobbler where I lived never had cinnamon in it. When we moved here every peach cobbler or pie had/has cinnamon in it. After 35 years here I still can't eat peach cobblers with cinnamon in them. They just aren't right.
My mother's favorite cobbler was strawberry and she often made it in a cake pan which usually only took about 30-35 minutes to cook but I loved how Grandma's in the deep dish was thick and creamy under the "crust".
Here is a peach cobbler that I came up with one day when I had a craving that is fast and easy.
Melt 1.5 tablespoons of butter in a large soup mug for about 30 seconds in a microwave. Tilt the cup around to coat sides of the mug.
3 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons sugar or substitute
3 Tablespoons milk
Stir well until there are no lumps
Add 1 4 oz. individual container of diced peaches in their own juice or light syrup. Do not stir. Microwave for about 2 minutes or until done. Unfortunately, it comes to about 10 points so it is definitely a once in a while thing even though it is so fast and easy.

alternative is to use splenda instead of sugar and pour diet sprite over the top instead of butter. |
Hum, I wonder if

I can tweak this into a microwavable mug version? |

diet sprite makes the crust not as tender as butter but i bet you could...saves a ton of calories|

chocolate cupcakes once on vacation with a package mix and a diet cherry cola. I don't know that I knew it was WW but we didn't have oil in the vacation house. I seem to remember that they were very light and fluffy. I'll have to try that.|
