No, I didn’t use Dorie’s recipe for the biscuit topping. Shoot me. Sorry, but I don’t believe in cobblers with “biscuit topping” – that’s just not how its done in my family. I’m sure Dorie’s recipe is perfectly delicious – but if I’m going to make a cobbler, I’m going to use my great grandmother’s crust recipe. Everything else is just like Dorie calls for – just not the topping. And guess what  – it was delicious! Every week, I follow the recipe exactly how its written – I’m a good little TWD member….just not this week. Don’t worry, next week I will definitely be making the Apple Cheddar Scones exactly as Dorie calls for; I promise I’ll go back to being a good girl. :-)

This weeks’ recipe was the Mixed Berry Cobbler chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life.



  1. The picture is beautiful…it looks delicious! I’m sure the TWD gods will forgive you for using an old family recipe!

  3. This is so funny! This morning I wrote a post about cobblers, saying that the only "real" cobbler as far as I’m concerned has a pie crust, woven in a lattice:…/a-cobbler-quest

    That’s great. Thanks for making me feel less alone. :)

  4. Let’s not quibble, as long as it’s tasty, who cares?! ;-)

  5. Testify, sister! I went with my grandmother’s pie crust, with lattice. Awww, yeah.

  8. First of all I don’t think that you have to apologize for not using the complete Dorie recipe! I think your cobbler looks delicious! Great job-besides, once you know something is fab, why use something else? yum
