I baked the cobbler this morning for tonight's dessert, but I may have to make another one by then, I had to have a taste, the BH had to have a taste, and before we knew it, we had cobbler for breakfast and it's half gone! Berries aren't in season here, and I used frozen blueberries. I also used soymilk so the dessert wouldn't be dairy. With a dash of vanilla thrown in this is a dessert worth handing down to deserving generations!
EXCELLENT, berries are not in season now so had to buy out-of-season berries, this was soo good I didn't feel bad about spending extra bucks on it. Post away Doolittle, looking forward to more great recipes!
Excellant cobbler dolittle57!!It was a big hit, I cut the recipe to half, there were just 4 of us, also cut back on the sugar, we like our berries a little tart. Probably because I used a deeper dish, I had to cook it longer, about 20 minutes more. But no matter it was delicious! and will do it again. Thanks for sharing a good recipe.
