Reviews for Fresh Fruit Cobbler
"I followed the recipe and used frozen blueberries and fresh peach chunks - my BBQ party guests loved it! This will be my summer cobbler recipe for all of this summer's fruits. Thanks for sharing it!!!"
"Made this for company. I wasn't sure of the recipe because never heard of pouring hot water over a crust before you bake it. It never got brown and even tasted raw yet the fruit was cooked. I even had someone say it looked disgusting and they wouldn't eat it. How embarrassing!!! It didn't taste bad after you added a lot of whipped cream but the raw taste did come through. I shredded this recipe!!"
"Excellent--one of the best cobbler recipes I've tried."
"very good, I made it with fresh peaches and we loved it!!"
"This is one of the best fruit desserts I've ever made!"
