1/2cup milk

Tips From Our Test Kitchen:
This juicy cobbler can be thickened by adding 1/2 cup of baking mix to the batter. If you prefer a more cake-like cobbler, double the batter recipe. Use one of the seasonal fresh fruits available at the market, or consider picking your own at a local farm or orchard. This easy cobbler is delicious chilled or warm. It travels well when cooled and even makes a delicious breakfast.
