Expert Tips

  • Swap the fruits. You can stick with just one kind of berry or any combination you like. You’ll need to make sure to use a total of 5 cups of the fruit of your choice. Apples, pears, and peaches are also tasty!
  • Skip the pecans. Hate nuts? Omit them completely. Or exchange the pecans for almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts.
  • The top won’t be covered. Don’t be alarmed that you don’t have enough topping to cover the entire fruit cobbler. There should be fruit juice seeping around the biscuit topping.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a cobbler a cobbler?

What sets a cobbler apart is that the top is made with a biscuit crust. It’s meant to be bumpy, uneven, and doesn’t always cover all of the fruit.

How do you thicken the filling?

The filling is thicker because of the flour that is added. However, if you want it to be much thicker you can add in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to the fruit. This will keep it from becoming soggy.
