I just wanted to mention to you how wonderful your cobbler recipe was I used it with some homemade raspberry sauce I made and again for my husbands birthday with necturine sauce it worked I hardly ever get to bake due to funds but that worked very well and he enjoyed each one very much. I also enjoy checking your blog it is very much enjoyed. God bless. Beverly in Milwaukee
