Crusty Cobbler

I got this one from my Mom in the 70's. I had gone home to visit and she made it and I loved it. She was forever finding great recipes!!

It is quick, easy, flexible, and ever so tasty.

I loved it plain. The texture of the cobbler was perfect and I would not change a thing.

Could also be served with a scoop of ice cream or even just a little cream poured over the dish.

The old folks always wanted a little cream poured over their dessert. It always makes a sweet creamy sauce at the bottom of the dish making the last drop really delicious.

Enjoy!
