this is an old-fashioned recipe from an early version of the "Better Homes and Gardens" cookbook. The biscuit topping has egg which makes a much richer and moister cobbler - something you would be proud to serve to guests

This was alright, but boring. Additionally, the rhubarb is incredibly visually unappealing when baked like this.

I love the biscuit part of this recipe! I've used it for any number of fruit fillings. It's not very sweet, but is rich, dense, and - wonderful for soaking up all the delicious sweet filling juices!
