Rhubarb Old-fashioned Cobbler

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by cooknwoman Pedersen

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.
