There are quite a few version of this cobbler, but the first time I made it for my friend Mae, she instantly fell in love with it. It has lots of flavor. So I called it her quick & easy cobbler in my cookbook. She said she had finally found a cobbler that she loved, but could make it herself. Some people call it magic because the crust rises to the top. If you do not care for fruit cocktail just use all peaches,but it is so simple anyone can make it. Try it with ice cream or whipped topping. You will see what I mean about how flavorful it is & simple to make.
