Building a Cobbler

Directions
Build a cobbler from the bottom up. There are two basic formulas to follow: one for berries and stone fruits (fruits with a center pit, like peaches, apricots, plums, nectarines, and cherries); and one for apples or pears. Follow either recipe and use the fruit of your choice; stir all ingredients together in 9×9 baking dish and set aside to make topping.

After you have made your filling, you can put two kinds of toppings over it: a crisp and lacy one with oats and a touch of cinnamon; or a tender biscuit topping sweetened with brown sugar.

Mix and match either topping will work over either fruit mixture. Mix the ingredients in a bowl with a fork, crumble the oat topping and drop the biscuit topping evenly over the fruit base.
