A cobbler is not just a little Germanic man that works on shoes (or a nasty inedible fish!)...at least that is how I always imagine a cobbler! A cobbler is a summertime American dessert involving fruit and scones basically. I am still a little puzzled as to why it is a summertime thing. To me a baked dessert like a cobbler is much more suited to cold winter nights. And thus it was that in late June, this recipe was created. My memory of cobbler is with peaches, but this was truly delicious. Hope you enjoy it!
