Fruit cobblers really don't require a recipe. They're super simple and quick. Throw them together during dinner and you'll have a freshly-cooked, hot, steaming, delicious dessert ready in no time.
Approximate Ingredients & Directions:
Cinnamon (if you're using apple)
Preheat oven to about 350 degrees.
I used a cast iron skillet (shocker, I know). I filled the pan with frozen/semi-thawed cranberries that I cut in half, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. I recommend adding cranberries to any of your fruit desserts.. they're fantastic! Just remember to cut them in half or they won't cook.
While the fruit was still frozen I mixed 3:1 oats to flour ratio, then started by adding just 1/8-1/4 c sugar to the mix. I cut in the smallest amount of margarine into the mix that I could. Start with 3 T if you're using a large pan. When you spread this oat/flour/sugar/margarine mix onto your fruit, be sure to spread around the margarine pieces.
Bake at 350 for 20+ minutes. Your fruit should start bubbling. If it's not brown enough, pump up the heat to 375-400. If it's browning but you don't think it's cooked, cover in foil and keep cooking.
Don't make it harder than it is. Enjoy your experimental desserts. You will LOVE this one.
