"Cobble up" means to put together in a hurry.

In the United States, varieties of cobbler include the Betty, the Grunt, the Slump, the Sonker, and the Buckle.
The dish has been in the United States for centuries, suggesting that it may have been developed by the colonists. Early settlers of America were very good at improvising. When they first arrived, they brought their favorite recipes with them. Not finding their favorite ingredients, they used whatever was available. That's how all these traditional American dishes came about with such unusual names.
