John's Birthday Cobbler

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Rita1652

My husband asks for this ever year for his Birthday! It's a dry dough except for the inside where the filling rests. It's almost like it's not cooked! But he loves it!!! The cobbler is reversed dough on bottom like a crust instead of on top. December 2009 I made this for DH in the food processor and it was quick and easy. In place of the buttermilk I used half and half with a teaspoon of lemon juice.
