Mom's yummy cobbler is a truly wonderful finale to any meal. This sweet-tart family favorite is chock-full of berries and rhubarb, and has a thick easy-to-make crust. —Susan Emery, Everett, Washington

"I love to bake and also have a huge rhubarb plant in my back yard. Finding really good, worthwhile recipes is a challenge...but this one is a winner! I followed the recipe as written and wouldn't change a thing...nice flaky crust too!"

"What a simple and fabulous recipe! I replaced 1/3 cup of the oil with melted butter, which is just my quirk, gotta have butter! This crust is a recipe I'm going to use from now on, on all my cobblers. And I'm replacing my current mixture of strawberry rhubarb with yours. EVERYTHING about this is perfect, from the texture of the crust to the just right sweetness of the filling. Thank you for this recipe, Susan!"

"I made this last night- and OH MY! I have never made one before that I didn't cook the rhubarb and strawberries beforehand. I will be keeping this super simple recipe!"

"I made this today since we picked 24 pounds of strawberries. I had frozen Rhubarb in the freezer. It turned out beautifully. I did not have a 11 by 7 inch pan so I used an 8 by 8 which worked out fine."

"Wonderful! Made it with last year's frozen rhubarb and can't wait for this year's crop to make it with fresh. Definitely a keeper."

"I have made this dessert multiple times this year. I first made it with strawberries then, I experimented with raspberries. Both were very good. The last time I made it with both strawberries and raspberries. Yum! The crust is so flaky. This crust is so easy to make and the best part is no shortening is needed. I will be using this crust recipe for other pie-like desserts!"
