Grandma's Fruit Cobbler

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Steven L.

If there were one recipe that I could not live without, this would be it. It's my favorite cobbler recipe that's older than dirt. I suggest using plums, but peaches work just a well.

Well, in fairness I have to say I'm not much of a baker. That said, I did follow the recipe very carefully, but the crust was difficult to roll, even after chilling for a bit. It didn't brown as I expected and as the recipe stated. Even wth that, it was tasty and we enjoyed it this evening.
