Building a Cobbler

December 31, 2016

Building a Cobbler


Build a cobbler from the bottom up.   There are two basic formulas to follow: one for berries and stone fruits (fruits with a center pit, like peaches, apricots, plums, nectarines, and cherries); and one for apples or pears.   Follow either recipe and use the fruit of your choice; stir all ingredients together in 9×9 baking dish and set aside to make topping.


Formula for Berries and Stone Fruits


5 ½ cups berries or pitted stone fruits

¼ cup sugar

2 Tbsp quick tapioca

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp almond extract


Formula for Apples and Pears


5 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples or pears

1/3 cup sugar

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla

1 Tbsp quick tapioca

1 Tbsp flour


After you have made your filling, you can put two kinds of toppings over it:  a crisp and lacy one with oats and a touch of cinnamon; or a tender biscuit topping sweetened with brown sugar.   Mix and match either topping will work over either fruit mixture.   Mix the ingredients in a bowl with a fork, crumble the oat topping and drop the biscuit topping evenly over the fruit base.


Oat Topping


½ cup flour

½ cup oats

½ cup sugar

¼ cup chopped nuts

¼ cup butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

dash nutmeg


Biscuit Topping


1 cup flour

½ cup milk

1/3 cup oats

¼ cup butter

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

dash nutmeg


Bake cobbler at 375 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
