We rarely had dessert growing up unless it was a special occasion or Sunday lunch. However, I do remember occasionally, on a random Saturday night, my mom would whip up this cobbler as a treat. It was always a very welcomed surprise.
This cobbler is truly, endlessly versatile. You can use any fruit, it can be made any size, and you can customize it any way you want.
The fruit can be canned, frozen, or fresh. My sister-in-law even made one with a can of pie filling and said the results were tasty. My family’s preference has always been a can of fruit cocktail or peaches. Ron and I have done some experimenting and our new favorite is frozen blackberries, often with extra sugar sprinkled on top of the cobbler right before it goes in the oven for some extra crunch.
