... all you pie and cobbler fans out there... please do me a huge favor and post your best cobbler recipe. I surely do miss my Grandma's peach, apple, or berry cobblers like nobody's business, and haven't had one since 1982. I'd like to figure one out that was close to hers, so here's a little background info that may help figure out where she got the recipe from.
She was born in Alabama in 1912, married and moved to Tennessee in 1926, and by the 1960s she was living up here in Oregon. I just know she got that recipe from AL or TN, though, so somebody, anybody, gimme some hep here! :)

I'm not sure.... maybe it has something to do with the top... like when I hear 'crisp' I think of a cinnamon-sugar crumbly topping on it... like with a Dutch Apple Pie.

Yes indeedy... just made my 'make-do' cobbler last night... in OR we have a life and death battle with blackberries at all times, and my back fence has tons and tons of them. So I usually knock out some pies, my 'make do' cobbler, and some freezer jam, and a lot go to waste, or right from the vine into my kids' greedy little faces... :) And the berries are really big and healthy this year, too... :)
But anyhow, my 'make-do' cobbler is just a yellow cake (made with about half the sugar and little to no vanilla) poured over a ton of berries and baked for about 10-15 minutes longer than the cake recipe calls for. It's good, but it shore ain't grandma's. :) :) :)

I think part of the problem is granny never taught us which on was the"scratch" bushes she started with. :)

You get me near too much blackberry pie and/or cobbler, you'd need heavy lift capability (I'm thinking a Herky-bird with JATO) to get me outta there...
