What a lovely treat this cobbler is, sweet, tart, rich, creamy and oh so satisfying. I served it warm with a little whipped cream on the side, so that the wonderful flavor of the cobbler would shine thru. The homemade caramel sauce takes this dish to new heights and keeps it there, it blends beautifully with the cobbler topping. I wish I could give you more than 5 stars, this dish deserves each and everyone of them and more. Thanks so much for sharing, a dish that I will make again and again.
