"We love the combination of fruit as well as the ease of preparation for this dessert," shares Carmen Edwards of Midland, Texas. "Sometimes I double the recipe and serve it to guests. Everyone is always happy when they arrive at my house to find these comforting cobblers waiting for them."
"I find it's challenging to make dessert for just the two of us-because we don't want lots of leftovers," shares Lee Bremson of Kansas City, Missouri. "But this dish works well. I usually serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top."
These tiny sheet cakes boast a homemade chocolate flavor as big as Texas itself, reports Hope Meece from her home in Ambia, Indiana. “The cakes are moist, freeze well unfrosted and always bring compliments,“ she adds.
"My nine-year old grandson and his friends went nuts for these great cookies," said Pamela Shank from Parkersburg, West Virginia. "Almonds and blueberries taste great together and give this cookie an updated twist."
"when I want something that will satisfy my sweet tooth, I make this pleasing pudding topped with blueberry sauce," says field editor Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia. "Thanks to my microwave oven, it's a quick and easy dessert."
WHEN Mom made pies to feed the crew during wheat harvest, she always had plenty of dough left over, so she treated us kids to apple dumplings.
I've carried on this tradition in my own family. Now my husband and I enjoy this special dessert even when I'm not baking pies.
MY FAVORITE time to visit my grandmother was when she'd just taken her crumb cake out of the oven. A warm piece of that cake with a cold glass of milk was the best treat.
I remember Grandma was able to simply look at the batter and know if it was right...and it was perfect every time.

MY MOTHER used to make this dessert whenever she could. During the Depression it was hard to find chocolate, but when she found some, she saved enough to make this pudding. I make it now and think of her every time I prepare it.
