Apricot Cobbler Recipe

Call it old-fashioned, comforting or mouthwatering—all those descriptions fit this down-home dessert. It bakes up golden brown and bubbly, with a crunchy crumb topping. The recipe comes from the owner of a popular restaurant in our state's famous Lancaster County.—Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania
