Healthy Cobblers Offer Comfort
(NAPSA) - A cobbler is a traditional dish. In the United States, it's usually made as a dessert filled with fresh or canned fruit. They can also be served British style as a main course filled with meat and vegetables.
Either way, a traditional cobbler is placed in a large baking dish and is covered by a layer of pastry. Cobblers are similar to pies but don't have the bottom crust. There are many varieties of cobblers, such as the Crumble, Crisp, Betty, Grunt or Slump. They can be served hot or cold depending on your preference.
