    I make lots of cobblers. This is one of the best - the fruit is a good sweet/tart balance and the biscuits were super! Family agreed it’s the best cobbler we’ve had. This is a keeper.

    I loved this cobbler. It's delicious and not too sweet.

    Was very good. We ate it with a scoop of ice cream. Next time I will try to 1/2 it as it is way too much o 3 or 4 people.
