"I used 2 cans of cherry pie filling. I did not use any reduced fat or reduced sugar products, used butter instead of margarine & 3/4 C Egg Nog instead of 1/2 C milk"

"I did not care for this. This is not my idea of a cobbler. Will definitely not make it again."

"I made this for a quick dessert for company. Everyone loved it and it was so easy. I used cherries that I had frozen and thicken like a pie filling. I used what would be equal at least to 2 cans of cherry pie filling. Would probably even use more another time and will surely make it again & with different kinds of fruits like peaches, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or apples."

"very good and easy plus to betty1944 - just use your favorite basic cobbler recipe & use the blueberries w/just a little (maybe a tsp) tapioca mixed in for thickening & follow recipe. I like a lot of sauce with my cobbler so I don't thicken it too much."

"Question anyone

Would I be able to put the topping on the filling before warming and if so, how long would I need to bake it then? THANKS!!!"
