Crisps & Cobblers
15 Cobblers & Crisps Made in a Cast-Iron Skillet
Use spring berries, summer peaches or fresh fall apples to bake up one of these fruity crisps or a juicy cobbler that's uniquely your own.
I found this strawberry rhubarb crisp recipe on a box of Quaker Oats about 20 years ago. It's quick, and easier to make than pie. It's versatile, too, because you can add strawberries in spring or apples in fall. I usually pop it into the oven shortly before we sit down to eat so it's still warm for dessert! —C.E. Adams, Charlestown, New Hampshire
This is one of my favorite summer recipes, as it features peaches and berries that are in season, but it's just as delicious with frozen fruit. The quick biscuit topping brings it all together.—Lauren Knoelke, Des Moines, Iowa
You can make this fruity dessert on your stovetop, but to really impress your guests, simmer it in an electric skillet right at the dinner table. There’s no more convenient way to enjoy the fruits of the season. —Patricia Frerk, Syracuse, New York
There were eight children in my family when I was a girl, and all of us enjoyed this cobbler. I now serve it for everyday and special occasions alike. —Carolyn Miller, Guys Mills, Pennsylvania
My cranberry-packed cobbler is the crowning glory of many of our late fall and winter meals. My family isn't big on pies, so this favorite is preferred at our Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. The aroma of cinnamon and fruit is irresistible. —Jo Ann Sheehan, Ruther Glen, Virginia
Crumbled macaroons are a surprising addition to this cobbler’s topping. We love that you can make the sweet treat in a baking dish or a cast-iron skillet. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"Pear-adise on a plate" is a great way to describe this fruity crisp. A lovely lemon custard sauce tastefully tops the tender pears and crunchy topping.
This is warm, sweet and filling—comfort food at its best! Scoop it up hot from the oven and serve it on those crisp, cool autumn days. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
My grandma used to make a version of this for me when I was a little girl. She would make it using fresh apples from her tree in the back yard. I've adapted her recipe because I love the combination of apple, pecans, and caramel. —Emily Hobbs, Springfield, Missouri
My husband loves it when I make dessert. Fruit crisps are easy and quick to prepare, so I make them often! I created this fall-flavored grilled version with fresh pears and items I had on hand. We loved it. —Ronna Farley, Rockville, Maryland
