Summer Cobbler


This recipe is lifted straight from my time at Zingerman’s Deli. It is quick and easy and basically foolproof as long as you don’t forget the baking powder– as I have done on several occasions. Use any fruit that is available: cherries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries and on and on and on. This recipe also scales up beautifully so if you need to make 4 hotel pans of cobbler, this dish is your friend.
