Fruit cobblers are a quintessential Southern dessert, and we bake two versions. These recipes came from my mother, who learned them from my grandmother.
Grandpa Orr would rather chew on the end of his leftover cigar than eat cake, but he did love a simple piece of pie - that's what we made him for his birthday.
A baked dessert is a wonderful way to show off the season’s bounty of fruit. A juicy cobbler, slump, or grunt is the perfect foil for fresh berries and peaches.
