wonderful recipe. Made it with fresh blackberries, and it was delicious. We loved the crisp crust. I had a hard time getting as many layers as called for. I made it again today,(in less then a week) and used peaches. I cut everything in half, and used the peaches. Made a smaller version of it, and only made a bottom crust and a top crust. I don't think we're ever gona get tired of making this recipe. So many different things to put in it. Apple will be my next one. I did find tho, that it didn't stay crisp if leftover for another day.

Made it three times in as many weeks. Always used more berries and never managed 3 layers, only two. Germans all agog over the concept of cobbler. Looking forward to next year's harvest of berries from the Kleingarten.

This is pretty close to how my Mom used to make her cobbler. This is a wonderful recipe. Very easy and instructions were easy to follow. We don't like too sweet of fruit pies or cobblers, rather letting the fruit flavor come through and this recipe does it every time. If you do prefer a juicy cobbler, reduce flour mixture (in berries) to 1/4 cup. Thanks so much for posting a tried and true recipe for us all!

Purchased a bunch of blackberries for cheap so I needed to do something with them,(dh can eat them like candy). Decided to make this and am glad I did. Turned out very yummy. Sure I will make again.

This is an excellent recipe that leaves room for imagination. I've made it many times with many compliments each time. The first time with blackberries (fresh). I have since made it with a combo of peaches and apricots, blueberries, apples and even concord grapes. Each was wonderful. The crust is so easy to make and I am always asked for the crust recipe. Thank you LonghornMama for posting!

Hello! I just made this for the second time - uses peaches instead of berries. I didn't think it possible, but the peach turned out even better! Thanks again. Awesome, followed your recipe exactly... reminded me sooooo much of my Mom's. I used blackberries, looking forward to trying it with peach. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a fantastic cobbler! I used blackberries that I picked and froze this past summer. I loved the crust. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious...I used raspberries; added a Tbsp. of sugar to the crust. I enjoyed making this and thinking of how my grandma used to make everything in a cast iron pan! My kids helped-next time I might have them use cookie cutters to make shapes of the pastry trimmings. Thanks!
