Out of This World Summer Fruit Cobbler

I love summer with it's bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables! This is a quick and easy dessert that incorporates those wonderful fruits of the season. My Uncle David used to own a diner in town and he would never let you leave without dessert - usually a fruit cobbler. His apple cobbler was to die for and I don't even like cooked apples! It is so simple that it might fool you...but I think it is the best cobbler, as close to Uncle David's as I could get.
