My husband’s Aunt Jan has a reputation in the family as a wonderful cook. Unfortunately, she lives in Tennessee which is on the other side of the country from us. So we only get to enjoy her talents once a year. While she was visiting a couple of months ago, she made us all cobbler. It received such a fabulous reception, that she was obliged to make it a second time on the trip. I begged the recipe, and imagine my delight when I realized how simple it was! I have since made it several times. Only once in the oven, while the other times I made it in the dutch oven while camping or hunting. I used a 12 inch dutch oven, and it cooked much faster… maybe 2o minutes? But it has been delicious each time! I have now used peach, apple, blueberry, and raspberry pie fillings, and they are all delicious! My favorites so far are peach and apple…. you’ll have to let me know which ones you try!

Here my brother and I are enjoying it on our elk hunt… the cobbler was a little burned that time, but since everything tastes better in the mountains, we still thoroughly enjoyed it!
