    Margaret Joy's Note:

    A FABULOUS recipe for fruit cobbler! The best part about it is that you can choose the fruit; and if you don't have canned fruit on hand you can use 5 to 6 cups chopped, fresh fruit. The golden topping is delicious! We like to eat ours served hot with milk, but ice cream would probably be great, too. A dear friend shared this recipe several years ago, and we've been using it ever since. Just like the title suggests, it's also a great time-saver on a busy day!

      I must have epically screwed this recipe up somehow!! I followed the directions to a t, and it came out HORRIBLE!!!!!! I am a beginner in cooking and baking, even had my husband helping, and it was just bad. The topping was too thick to spread, so I did my best. I'm from the Midwest, I know what cobbler is supposed to taste like, this was really, really bad. 5 stars for your picture, no stars for what I made!!

      I diced 2 fresh apples, laid them in my lightly greased 9x13 Pyrex pan. Then I sprinkled brown sugar, raisins, and sliced almonds on the apples. Then I layered on 1 quart of home canned pears, sliced thin. Next I made up the topping, it was really Really thick, so I thinned it with a bit of pear syrup and spread it over the fruit, then sprinkled rolled oats on top. I baked as recipe indicates. Well, the topping was a dark brown. However, it has been gobbled down by my hubby and 5 children.

      As suggested I used fresh fruit: about 3 pounds of peeled ad sliced apples!
      The recipe was delicious and the topping came out crispy and tasty.
      I confess that this dish today replaced our lunch for us 4.
      It was easy , fast, delicious and healthy.
      I can really recommend this cobbler!
