Hi Kimbaby sounds easy and delicious. My kids love cobblers too. Here is an easy one that I just made up with what I had in the pantry and luckily it came out really good.

Apple cobbler.

Used golden delicious apples because that's all I had (approx 6 medium ones). I peeled them and sliced them thin
Used 1/2 tbsp of flour
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Used approximately 3 tbsp of white sugar
Used 1 cup of granola cereal (it had raisins, cinnamon and almonds in it)
6 tbsp of butter
3 tbsp of more flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar

I dumped sliced apples in a bowl and tossed them with the white sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 tbsp of flour and stirred to combine.

I placed them in a baking dish. I then mixed the butter (cold) with the sugar, flour and granola with a fork. I then evenly spread that mixture on top of the apple mixture. I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes or so (I have a convection oven) so in a regular more like 40 minutes and then cooled it a little bit and served. It was almost gone that very same night. I thought it was a good way to clean out the pantry and little left over ingredients.

An easy topping is to combine 2 or 3 packets of brown sugar/cinnamon or maple/brown sugar instant oatmeal and a couple tablespoons butter and use a fork to mash the butter into the oatmeal to form crumbs. Bake at 325* until fruit of choice is tender. If the topping isn't as brown as you like, raise the oven to 350*. Increase to make the amount of topping you want.

So you just put the dry mix right on top of the fruit? You dont have to mix anything in first?

How much butter should you drizzle on... should the mix be saturated or will there be some parts that should be left dry?

Sorry for so many questions... this sounds interesting and I'd like to give it a try!

put dry mix right on top,some areas should be left dry,make sure butter is not melted when you put it on (like rows of butter)

Oh, okay... thanks! Your original recipe says "top with drizzles of butter" so I thought it had to be melted first.

Anyway, I'm going to give this a try this afternoon. I'll probably use both peaches and pears. Mmm.. should be nice.
