This cobbler is the real deal. After moving to the South and discovering a wonderful talent for baking, one of our favorite Kitchenworkers introduced us to this amazing cast iron berry cobbler.
This is not a boxed dessert from aisle 3 that requires a cup of oil and an egg. This the dessert that your grandmother would have pulled from the oven on a crisp fall afternoon and served with homemade ice cream. Trust us, when you taste this sweet bubbly creation with it's golden brown biscuit topping, you'll be a believer.
