Pro-tips for a fantastic cobbler:

  1. While the dish is baking, make certain the batter bakes all the way through. Pockets of batter can hide and no one wants to eat raw batter. Cover with foil if the cobbler is browning too quickly.
  2. The best fruit for this dish are peaches, cherries, blueberries and blackberries. Frozen fruit actually works best- it is frozen at peak freshness and provides a ton of juice.
  3. Leave an oven mitt on the hot dish of melted butter so you do not burn yourself returning it to the oven. The baking dish will remain HOT.
  4. Place a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper under the cobbler baking dish to catch drips.
  5. Whole or 2% milk works best in this recipe.
  6. Strawberries tend to fall apart and are not recommended.
  7. Try pineapple, apples or pears.
  8. Sprinkle 1 TBSP of coarse sugar on top of the cobbler prior to baking for an extra crunchy topping.

I once made this dessert for a dinner party I hosted when my guest who was to bring a dessert and brought wine instead. I spared my poor guest any embarrassment by whipping this up in a flash and looked like a pro serving this up with ice cream (PRO TIP-always keep vanilla ice cream and frozen fruit in the freezer).
