What's better than one flavor of cobbler?

TWO COBBLERS IN ONE

Here, I even drew a diagram.

Of course you don't have to make both of these recipes in the same dish like I did. The recipe is easily scalable if you only have one fruit around, or if you just want a personal serving.

A cobbler consists of 3 layers, the Base, the Fruit middle, and the Topping. A sweet, rich cobbler will have all 3 of these layers, though some recipes will try to skip the base. Don't skip the base!

Ingredients

Base:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  8. Using a pastry blender, or a fork, mix butter into flour mixture until crumbly.
  9. Pour boiling water into flour mixture and stir until combined and crumbly
  10. Split apart any large dough balls and spread the crumble across the top of the fruit.
