My Beautiful Grandma's Classic Fruit Cobbler recipe inspired me to create this recipe. I made a few changes to the ingredients, and instead of the oven, I was able to cut the time in half using our grill. My family and friends love it, and hope you will too. Plus added heartfelt thanks to my Grandma Mae!! note**also taste great with different fresh fruit combinations, like peaches, mangoes and blueberries or apples, pears and figs
