How to Make Fruit Cobbler
Almost any fruit or combination of fruits works in a simple batter-topped cobbler. These easy steps will help you create an irresistible dessert.
Cobbler, a cousin to deep-dish pie, gets its name from its biscuit topping that resembles cobblestones. Ripe, in-season fruit serves as a tasty base for dollops of batter placed on top and baked until the topping is golden brown. To get started, pick a great recipe (recommendations below).
Step 3: Prepare cobbler topping
In a mixing bowl stir together the topping mixture ingredients just until the dry ingredients are moistened. The mixture will be lumpy.
Tip: Do not overmix or the cobbler topping will be tough.
Step 4: Pour filling into baking dish
Transfer the hot filling mixture to a baking dish.
Step 5: Add topping to filling
Use a flatware tablespoon to scoop up topping mixture. Use a second spoon to push the mixture onto the hot filling, spacing the mounds equally on the filling.
