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!
