Give cherries a golden, crunchy cobbler crust with this versatile mix. "For a quick gift, put a batch of it-along with a can of pie filling and serving directions-in a decorated bag," suggests Joyce Huber of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.
I was born and raised in the Midwest, and this sweet dessert reminds me of home. The kitchen smells wonderful while it's baking. It's done when you tap on the crunchy topping and it sounds hollow.

"THIS cobbler was always topped with fresh whipped cream that we skimmed from a milk pan kept cool in my uncle's pumphouse. We skimmed off that cream with a flat spoon and carried it to the kitchen to be whipped. Afterward, we could hardly wait for dessert to be served!"
"Nicely spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, this delicious cobbler is one of my family's favorites," writes Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. "It is easy to prepare...and the recipe has been in my family for years."
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.
