When summer rolls around and I have lots of fresh fruit and berries in the house, I love to make one of my favorite desserts: Cobbler! This tasty specific cobbler recipe has been in my family for generations. It was passed down to me from my mom who got it from her grandmother. I am passing it on to my son and daughter. My mom still remembers her grandmother making fresh berry cobbler each summer with the fresh-picked berries grown right on her farm.
This cobbler recipe is incredibly easy to make, and works with so many different types of fruits and berries. A couple of my favorites are peach/raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry. They are as fun to make as they are to eat. Today I tried making it with fresh bing cherries, and I wasn’t disappointed. It is a pretty quick recipe. The only time-consuming part is pitting the cherries, but the end result was so worth it… plus, that’s what kids are for! I guarantee that the recipe below is the best and easiest cobbler you will find. Let me know if you make it and what fruit you decide to use.
