    Hello Betty, I'm from the Delta. Good to see another one from MS.

    I love this cobbler but since I've become a diabetic, I try to be good and refrain from anything that is good. Try I said.
    After each mixture that you put into baking dish you don't stir, or do you. When I was making them I didn't stir when adding my mixtures to the baking pan.

    Ty, marilyn
