This is very similar to a recipe my mother taught me. Variation: You can substitute self-rising flour for the plain flour and baking powder and this recipe will still turn out delicious. Also, my family likes more fruit in our cobblers so I put in 2 cans instead of just one. The crust ingredients are so simple to remember too..."a cup, a cup, a cup of flour, sugar, milk"! This recipe is also very forgiving of mistakes in technique. Serve hot a la mode...SCRUMPTIOUS!!

This is Highly Rated. I had my Granddaughter her for a week. Many friends came to the house. Chelsea and I made this for them and we had fun doing it and her friends loved it. We used Apple Pie Filling. No Changes needed. Thank You for a wonderful time with my granddaughter. Hugs
