This cobbler was far too sweet for my taste. I tasted the cobbler before making the Vanilla Yogurt Sauce. Recognizing how sweet the cobbler was, I used a dollop of plain yogurt rather than the yogurt sauce. This helped offset some of the sweeetness. I probably should have looked at the nutritional content before making this. If I had, I probably would have noticed that this was going to be a super-sweet item.

I believe this has some good potential - but written as it is - the fruit is way too sweet, and the creamy yogurt sauce has too much vanilla, giving it too stong a flavor also. I could not eat more than about 3 bites. My DH felt the same way also. I even double-checked to make sure I had read the amounts correctly and I had.
