This dessert looks pretty, but it is a huge disappointment. The picture on here looks like they had to have used 2 cans of pie filling; one barely covered mine. The cakey part is dry and crumbly and overly sweet. Overall very disappointed I wasted my time and ingredients on this.

I am these they turned out good but, the next morning they were all sticky and falling apart. How do you store these. I wanted to make them again to take to a cookout but don't wssnt them to be all mushy.

i cheated big time... I used 2 bagged cobbler mixes and well I think it turned out better by using the cobbler mix - next time I will use a already made crust for top and bottom! the recipe here was good... but just too doughy and wouldn't get dcooked on the bottom... I done everything for this recipe says... just wouldn't get cooked on bottom!

Question ??? Why couldn't you use crossiant dough , just smooth out , where you take it apart. It would be a tender & flaky crust..It would probably take 2 cans,for that size baking pan..I think I just might try it this way.

made for a church bible study. Everyone liked the taste of the cobbler. Will make again.

Not what I expected. Followed all directions carefully and baked as directed but the bottom batter is soggy, as if it did not bake. I have never made a cobbler before-is this how it should be?

Added this recipe to my RB just today! Created a separate folder for it entitled Cobbler Bars. This also would be wonderful using raspberry pie filling. Mmmmmm.

Other than a couple of very, very minor differences, this is the recipe that's been in my family for years. It's a favorite of family, a favorite of visiting salesmen or pastors, and always a hit with a construction crew for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon treat. Definitely a bar that pleases everyone!
