Four Fruit Cobbler

Nothing is better than warming up the house in the cooler months with something tasty from the oven. Having teens I find dinner is done and they are still looking for more. So dessert has been a new addition to our family meals. This recipe, Four Fruit Cobbler fills them up and is easy to make. It can be changed up to add in any fruits you may want,  depending on the season and availability. We have replaced the Fall fruits with berries and served with ice cream before and it was fabulous.

My children have quickly become fans of cobbler and the four fruit cobbler is one of their faves. Give it a try yourself and let me know what you think.

Cobbler is my favorite breakfast. In fact, we made this early this morning.
