I don't worry about the liquid. As far as I'm concerned, cobblers are supposed to be sloppy. :roll:

We have cooked this in the cast iron Dutch Oven. We use the brandy instead of water. It is great. It is from Justin Wilson.

Blueberry Cobbler

For the filing:

½ cup (1 stick) margarine or butter
1 ½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ teaspoons salt
9 cups fresh blueberries, picked over for stems
¾ cup brandy or water

For the crust:

½ cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups apple or pineapple juice or milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To prepare the filling, melt the margarine in a medium-size saucepan over a medium fire. Stir in the sugar, flour and salt and mix well. Add the blueberries and water, stir and heat thoroughly, about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into a buttered deep 9 x 12-inch casserole dish and set aside

To prepare the crust, in a medium-size mixing bowl, cream the margarine with the sugar, then add the flour, baking powder, salt, and fruit juice and mix well. Pour the batter over the blueberries and bake until golden brown, about 1 hour.

Peach Cobbler

3 cups chopped ripe peeled peaches
1 ¼ cups sugar
3 tablespoons flour
Double-crust pie crust (recipe follows)
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon milk (to brush on top crust)
Cinnamon sugar (see note)

Make pie crust.

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a saucepan, cook peaches, sugar and flour until thickened. Place bottom crust in 8x8-inch square (or other similar size) baking dish and pour in peach filling.

Dot filling with butter and cover with top crust. Brush milk on top crust and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut slits in top to allow steam to escape. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. (Tip: Place cobbler on cookie sheet.) Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Pie crust: Mix 22/3 cups all-purpose flour and 1 teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Cut in 1 cup butter-flavored Crisco using pastry blender until all flour is blended to form pea-sized chunks. Sprinkle with 5 to 6 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition. Toss lightly with fork until dough forms ball.

Divide dough in half. Press between hands to form two 5- to 6-inch discs. Flour dough lightly. Roll into circle on floured surface. Pick dough up by placing rolling pin on edge of circle and gently lapping edge of dough around pin. Roll away from you so dough is lightly wrapped around rolling pin. Place rolling pin over pie plate and unroll.

Note: Ms. Thomas keeps a supply of cinnamon sugar (3 to 4 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon) on hand, stored in a jar with a shaker top.

Texas Peach Cobbler

----For the Batter---
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
----For the Filling----
4 cup sliced fresh peaches
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix together the peaches; sugar; cinnamon and lemon juice. Allow the mixture to sit while you make the batter; so the juices can be drawn out of the peaches. Put the butter in a 9x13-inch Pyrex baking dish and put the dish in the preheating oven. While the butter is melting; mix up the batter by combining the flour; baking powder; salt; sugar and milk. When the butter is completely melted; remove the pan and pour the batter into the melted butter. Then; carefully spoon the peach mixture evenly over the batter. Return dish to the oven and bake for 45 minutes. As the cobbler cooks; the batter will begin to rise up and around the peaches.

You're right. I still ate it all..sloppy and all. It was soupy but yummy!


I'll try some flour or cornstarch next time. Thanks.


I didn't use water at all. I put the fresh sliced peaches at the bottom of a casserole dish and sprinkled them with 1/2 cup of sugar combined with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of butter then topped it with the dough. I never use water in my cobbler but you just gave me a good idea to use Brandy. You think it will be good with peaches?
