One of my favorite movies is "Steel Magnolias." In the movie, Truvy talked about her Cupa, Cupa, Cupa recipe. My mother made this all the time when I was growing up, with either fresh peaches or frozen ones she "put up" in the summer. So simple, yet so good. You can use your favorite fruit or make it using an undrained fruit cocktail and omit the milk.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A cup of this and a cup of that. Put it all together, and you have one easy cobbler recipe. It's buttery with crispy edges and a fluffy cake texture in the center. Fresh peaches make this pop with flavor but use your favorite fruit. Blueberries, strawberries, a mixture of both... any fruit will be delicious. Serve with a scoop of ice cream for an easy summer dessert.
