Cherry-Berry Stovetop Cobbler - by Summer
I was putting off making this one because I felt like I didn't have a good large skillet to make it in. I kept thinking of what I would do and in the end, I used the only skillet that had big sides and a lid. I thought it would be too big, but this recipe has a lot of fruit.
Anyhow, I put the biscuit dough on top of the fruit and covered it. And it baked and baked and baked on the stove. For probably a good 50 minutes. The biscuits were just not looking done. I finally uncovered it and that still didn't help. So then I threw it in the oven and after about 10 minutes, I just gave up and declared them done!
I really liked this concept. Especially for the summer time when it can get really hot around here. I love desserts with a cakey/crust, but sometimes turning on the oven gets the house way too warm in the summer. I loved the taste of this, although I wish the biscuit part was more done. Was it the whipping cream instead of the half-n-half? Or was my skillet too big? I do want to try making these again. The fruit filling is so good and dessert enough all by itself!
