Since fruit filling is the star of most cobblers, you want to use the juiciest and best when available. Try our traditional strawberry cobbler in spring and summer months, when berries are at their best. Recipe: Fresh Strawberry Cobbler
It's the dough that puts the "magic" in these no-fail cobblers. It starts on the bottom and magically rises to the top during baking. Recipe: Magic Mixed Berry Cobbler
In a dessert slump? We've got the cure. A close relative to the cobbler, slumps feature a dumpling-like topping and tend to “slump” during baking. Recipe: Blackberry Slump
Crumbles are cousins to cobblers, and their crunchy crusts perfectly balance the fruity fillings underneath. Recipe: Blueberry Crumble
Venture out of the berry family to shake up your cobbler experience. We combined dried fruit with fresh - crisp apples and dried pears - with delicious results. Recipe: Apple Pear Magic Cobbler
Rich chocolate cobblers are a great way to turn up the decadence of your dessert. We have taken a time-honored classic - black forest cake - and turned it into an ooey-gooey cobbler creation featuring the cake's signature combo of cherries and chocolate. Recipe: Black Forest Magic Cobbler
A scoop of ice cream is a must when serving hot cobbler. Our delicious fresh raspberry and peach cobbler is even better when it is served with a scoop of homemade melty vanilla ice cream. Recipes: Peach-Raspberry Cobbler, Mr. Jefferson’s Vanilla Ice Cream
Some cobblers don’t even need a covering crust to shine. Take our unusual (but absolutely fabulous) plums and cherries cobbler topped with biscuits rather than a sugar-dusted crust. Recipe: Cherry Plum Cobbler
This yummy rhubarb dessert isn’t by definition a "cobbler." But with a crumbly, no-roll pastry topping and a sweet rhubarb filling, it’s equal part "cobbler" and "pie." Recipe: Crusty Rhubarb Pie
A classic peach cobbler gets a flavor facelift with an infusion of amaretto and a pretty finishing touch with a hand-crafted crust. Recipe: Amaretto Peach Cobbler
