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. -Rita Reifenstein, Evans City, Pennsylvania

"I found that I couldn't roll out the dough for the top and I had to use another cobbler topping! I admit that I had to use almost all of the dough for the bottom crust! I did use 1 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp. and I used about 4 cups of apples instead of 8 cups! For the cobbler topping, I used the following ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder,

1 Tbsp. sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup milk. I didn't use the milk, sugar and cinnamon for the topping . I dropped what was the balance of the top for this cobbler & then I'd made the additional cobbler topping and baked it again for about 20 minutes more until golden brown.
I gave this dessert to friends and they enjoyed the cobbler! For me, I'll probably stick to my adjustments on this recipe! I rated this as a 4* recipe! Thank you, Rita Reifenstein, for taking the time to share your recipe! I am glad I tried it-I just found that I did need to adjust it to get the results I wanted! delowenstein"

"There was not enough moisture called for to allow the apples to cook and the tapioca to make a sauce. The apple filling was not edible."

"The crust was too thick; there were not enough apples, it was like a crust on crust sandwich. I could not serve this to company."
