Date Pudding Cobbler Recipe

Meet the Cook: 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. My husband and I have two grown children and four grandchildren. Three times in a row, I've been fortunate to win our church's pie-baking contest. -Carolyn Miller, Guys Mills, Pennsylvania
