    I was super skeptical about this recipe when I started, I ended up really liking it. I made it with rhubarb and apples. Follow it to a T. water and everything...

    this recipe is NOT GOOD. the sugar and cornstarch mixture should be put OVER THE BERRIES, not over the dough. i had plain cornstarch stuck to the dough when it got done baking. makes no sense to do it this way. will do it my way next time.

    I followed the recipe and used frozen blueberries and fresh peach chunks - my BBQ party guests loved it! This will be my summer cobbler recipe for all of this summer's fruits. Thanks for sharing it!!!

    Made this for company. I wasn't sure of the recipe because never heard of pouring hot water over a crust before you bake it. It never got brown and even tasted raw yet the fruit was cooked. I even had someone say it looked disgusting and they wouldn't eat it. How embarrassing!!! It didn't taste bad after you added a lot of whipped cream but the raw taste did come through. I shredded this recipe!!
