Wonderful Apricot Cobbler

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

A family favorite! This cobbler has a wonderful crunchy crumb topping, with a delicious bubbly apricot center. Although I have never tryed it, you could probably make this using canned peaches in place of the apricots.

This is an extremely quick and easy recipe! However, there are a few issues I would like to make people aware of. I was a bit surprised that the recipe only called for one 15 1/2 ounce can of fruit. The recipe says it will serve 6-8 people, and there is only around 3 1/2 servings of fruit in a 15 ounce can, and this is not sufficient. I ended up using two 15 ounce cans of apricots and that was more in keeping with the ratios of this recipe. Also, when baking desserts using apples, apricots, peaches, and pears, NEVER underestimate the importance of cinnamon... I doubled the amount to one teaspoon and will add extra next time. I also mixed in 1/3 cup of quick cook oats to the topping along with one extra tablespoon of butter. I then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over it b4 baking. Just like Grandma used to make :)
