Cobbler is like soup--you need a *plan* more than you need a recipe. Here's how I make the components:
• 4-6 cups of fruit which I cook down a little bit with about a cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of flour, and 1 t. cinnamon. This can be accomplished on the stovetop in a saucepan, or to save a dish, right in the casserole dish but in the oven. You want it to get hot and start to release its juices.
• a batch of biscuit dough with 1/4 c. of sugar added.
Wow, that was easier than pie. Fill a shallow casserole with the hot fruit, blob the biscuit dough on top in a carefree manner, sprinkle with a little extra sugar, and bake as you would for biscuits--just follow the recipe on the baking powder can.
