  1. I made this for a work party-got excellent reviews from co-workers, super easy, will definitely do it again!
  2. I'd never made cobbler before and this sure was easy and very good. Don't know what the other reviewer used but it was way sweet (perfect.) I added more spices... will probably add even more next time (I like the sharp, earthy spices.)
  3. I needed to use up some pumpkin pie filling & this recipe fit the bill. It was extremely easy to make & we enjoyed it. I wish I had some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to top it with. I think, in general, cobbler type recipes are enhanced by some topping.
  4. This was a very easy recipe. I didn't find it to be sweet enough for my tastes, but topped with icecream or cool whip, it was pretty tasty. I will definitely be trying it again, but the next time I make it, I will add a little sugar to the filling along with some extra spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Thanks for posting, marie!
