I do luuuv me some cobbler. Any cobbler will do. It doesn’t have to be fancy, or purdy, or dolled up. I’ll take my cobbler any ol way! I decided to take a look around and see how others made their cobbler. A little cobbler research if you may. It was hard work, but somebody had to do it! What I found was that there are somewhere near 1 gatrillion versions of cobbler. Sweet, savory, spicy, crumbley, flakey, moist, I suspect there is a correlation between where one lives and how one makes cobbler. I couldn’t find any hard research on it, but I believe it to be true.

cob bler [kob-ler] a deep-dish fruit pie with a rich biscuit crust, usually only on top.
There that sounds more like it. Except for that’s not what we called cobbler. My family would call that dumplings. Our cobbler consists of a buttery pie crust spread haphazardly in a 9×13 baking pan, with fruit on top of that, then the crust folded over the top, then a crumble crust on top of that. That’s what my people call cobbler.

That’s the cobbler I grew up on. I will share it with you soon.
