Fruit Cobbler Bread

kim kilonsky


Many years ago when I first started working in the grocery business one of our bakers made a bread similar to this and I loved it.I have come up with my own version that everyone simply loves and I get many requests for.Though fruit pies are generally used in this bread I have tried it with pumpkin pies as well as chocolate silk and pecan.Anything that is not a cream pie will work well I think.
