    Rita~'s Note:

    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.

      I don't think I will ever tire of your delicious recipes. How did you know I was craving a cobbler? This actually keeps better than most cobblers because of the doughy crust... but it only lasted for two sittings anyway. Thanks Rita and John!
