I took several cobbler recipes, baked and tweaked, and came up with this super easy cobbler recipe that you can use any fruit with. My favorite is plum, my husband's is apple, and my Step-father's is peach! I usually mix fruit too! I've made plum/apple, peach/pear, apple/pear, plum/pear, etc! Have fun! Use your favorites!! I have also made this with sugar substitutes, but if using home canned fruit, remember the sugar in the syrup! When I use a very tart fruit like plums or rhubarb, I don't drain the syrup off, but sweet fruit such as peaches or pears, I do.Play with this, make it yours! Enjoy
Mix all filling ingredients. (I like almond with cherries and peaches, vanilla with pears and apples, and the walnut with plums or pears. Use whichever you like best!) Pour into baking dish. Dot with butter.
Mix dry ingredients. Cut in cold butter, then add the milk. Drop onto filling, and sprinkle with sugar if desired.
Bake at 450 for approx 30 min. Topping should spread out and turn golden brown. Enjoy with ice cream, whipped cream, Dream Whip, or what ever you like best!
