My mom gave me an older Bisquick cookbook she had and never used. It is from 1964 and this recipe is what I use for a great peach cobbler. I do use a whole recipe for the shortcake instead of 1/2 for a crustier cobbler. If you have fresh fruit, use 3 cups of sweetened fruit mixed with 3/4 water.

Add mixture to fruit and boil for 1 minute. Pour thickened fruit mixture into a 2 quart baking dish and dot with butter. Set aside.
  2. Add Bisquick, milk, melted butter, and sugar if using, into a bowl. Stir with fork until mixture is well combined. Drop by spoonfuls over fruit. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until shortcake is golden brown.

Fast and simple recipe for homemade cobbler. I used two 15 oz. cans of blackberries. It took longer than 1 minute to thicken. I had to cook it for around 10 minutes for the fruit mixture to thicken. It might of been because of my choice of fruit. I sprinkled some sugar over the cobbler topping before baking. Topped of the warm cobbler with some whipped cream. Yummy!

This was very easy to do. We prefer a crustier cobbler and a larger fruit to shortcake ratio. I used peaches. Next time I will cut the shortbread recipe in half. Thanks!
