Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.

I was skeptical of this recipe because, quite frankly, it looked a bit too easy. I am used to more complicated cobblers. I had some fresh strawberries in the refridgerator that I didn't want to go bad and decided to use them for this dessert. I am amazed at how great the cobbler presented itself and tasted. I used a stoneware pie dish and melted the butter in the oven as suggested but scaled back on the amount -about 3 Tbsp. I mixed the ingredients as it stated and sliced the fresh strawberries onto the top (didn't place them in whole as they were extra large) until the top of the dish was blanketed with them. I let the cobbler bake for about 50 minutes and served it warm with a dollop of cool whip on top. Fantastic. My dinner guest was quite amazed and impressed. This was the easiest and one of the best tasting cobblers I've made to date (and I bake A LOT). Next time I'll try experimenting with different fruits.

I really don't know what more you could ask for in either a recipe or a dessert. Five stars for ease of preparation. Five stars for straightforward instructions and easily available ingredients. And five stars for being delicious, heavenly comfort food. I made this as the recipe directed, only adding 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. I think I had this in the oven in under five minutes from walking into the kitchen! Buttery, cakey topping, crispy along the edges, with a nice balance of fruit and batter. I used all strawberries, and can only imagine how good this would be with any number of other fruits as well. My only criticism, and it is a small one, is that I would like to see this fuller in the pan - as written, the recipe fills an 8x8 pan about half full. Next time I may try adding half again as much of both the batter and fruit ingredients so that it fills the pan more. However, who really cares so much about how it looks in the pan - it's what it looks and tastes like once it gets on your plate that counts, and this was gooooooood.

very good for a quick and easy dessert. I used a mix of peaches and blueberries. However, I would recommend using more fruit than recommended-closer to three cups makes it fruiter and less doughy.
