Old Fashioned Fruit Cobbler

This old fashioned fruit cobbler is a family recipe from my Aunt! It is great in both a pan or in dutch oven over coals while camping! It holds up well with any kind of fruit, and the cobbler topping has wonderful texture and flavor all on it's own! Holds up well to ice cream!

It's #FarmersMarketWeek so what better way to celebrate than to make a warm fruit cobbler with fruit you picked up at your local farmers market, road side stand or pick your own farm? Supporting your local farming community is so important!

This recipe is an heirloom family recipe. My Aunt handed it down to us, and we have all had this many times at many camping style reunions and now in our own homes too.it's a classic recipe worth keeping!

I have made it this summer multiple times both with peaches and blackberries aleady!  It never lasts. BUT if you ever actually have a scrap or two of left overs, may I suggest a milkshake and mix in the cobbler ? Ummmm yummo!! BUT you'll have to fight to grab a spoonful from the pan to do it!

I'll see if I have photos of both the peach and the blackberry that I have made this summer already. I can just taste this cinnamon sugar seasoned topping just by thinking about it! oooh yeah!
