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!

- Combine the cornstarch and the water and add to the pineapple. Bring back to a boil. Set aside.
- BASE: Combine flour, sugar, milk, melted butter, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir until combined. Pour batter into prepared baking pan, and top with fruit mixture.
- TOPPING: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt together.
- Using a pastry blender, or a fork, mix butter into flour mixture until crumbly.
- Pour boiling water into flour mixture and stir until combined and crumbly
- Split apart any large dough balls and spread the crumble across the top of the fruit.
- Bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until topping is cooked thoroughly and has started to brown
