A treasured family recipe, this cobbler is a delicious old-fashioned dessert. It travels well and slices nicely, so it's perfect for picnics or tailgate parties. We like apples, but you can use your favorite fruit. -Rita Reifenstein, Evans City, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2014

"I found that I couldn't roll out the dough for the top and I had to use another cobbler topping! I admit that I had to use almost all of the dough for the bottom crust! I did use 1 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp. and I used about 4 cups of apples instead of 8 cups! For the cobbler topping, I used the following ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder,1 Tbsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup milk. I didn't use the milk, sugar and cinnamon for the topping . I dropped what was the balance of the top for this cobbler & then I'd made the additional cobbler topping and baked it again for about 20 minutes more until golden brown.I gave this dessert to friends and they enjoyed the cobbler! For me, I'll probably stick to my adjustments on this recipe! I rated this as a 4* recipe! Thank you, Rita Reifenstein, for taking the time to share your recipe! I am glad I tried it-I just found that I did need to adjust it to get the results I wanted! delowenstein"

"There was not enough moisture called for to allow the apples to cook and the tapioca to make a sauce. The apple filling was not edible."

"The crust was too thick; there were not enough apples, it was like a crust on crust sandwich. I could not serve this to company."
