Recipe Details


One of our favorite Southern desserts is the all-American fruit cobbler. This one features cherries and Gala apples for a filling that strikes just the right balance between sweet and tart. A homemade biscuit topping is a cinch to make and adds that ultra-desirable buttery, flaky oomph we’re always looking for in our sweets. Skip the plates, grab the forks, and everyone, dig in.
