We have an abundance of fresh figs now with two trees loaded with fruit. We love eating them out of hand, but needed another way to use them. This is so easy, quick, and simple that I think anyone who has access to fresh figs should add this to their cookbooks.

This is a simple recipe that I used many times to satisfy my large family when we worked in a plant and produce business in Knoxville, TN. We always had the few ingredients, and it is easy and quick to make.

This is an old-fashioned dessert that most people thoroughly enjoy eating. The baked fruit filling is crowned with a thin biscuit topping.


It can be eaten warm or cold, plain or topped with vanilla ice cream.

Can I make a mince meat cobbler from the can mince meat?

By Sherry H


September 16, 20150 found this helpful

Yes- you sure can. I always use whatever fruit I have. Canned mincemeat will be super easy. Make sure to grease your pan, and you may want to cook it at 325 for 55 minutes.

My grandmother used to "whip up" a fruit cobbler (of sorts) that was awesome. It was some sort of dough, put on a jelly roll pan, she then would cut apples, or blueberries, peaches, etc. and layer it on top of the dough. Sprinkle with some cinnamon and sugar and then bake it. The dough was about 1/2" thick. We would cut them into "bars" and devoured them, pan after pan! It was always quick to make with very few ingredients. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks! Missing my Gramma in PA!

Quick Fruit Cobbler Recipe

What you describe is an apple tart, A cobbler is a pie like filling with only a crust on top. A quickie way is to add a little sugar to Bisquick Mix and follow directions for biscuits or shortcake on the box. Roll out into a rectangle shape - until the desired thickness and wrap around your rolling pin to transfer in one piece to cookie sheet. Peel and slice apples, toss with sugar, a little salt and seasonings of choice and spread on "crust". Dot with butter. Bake until edges are golden and apples are tender. (11/15/2005)


Quick Fruit Cobbler Recipe

I'm originally from northeastern Ohio, and I remember eating something like this also. It was a heavy batter dough that the fruit would kind of sink into. It was often topped with glaze or powdered sugar. Funny that you would bring it up, I was thinking about it the other day, wishing that I could find a similar recipe too. I now live in the southern states, where a "Buckle" is often called a "cobbler," and I like them lots better than the traditional cobbler. (11/18/2005)

Quick Fruit Cobbler Recipe

Here's an explanation of the differences between the "cobbler" family of dishes. I'd never heard of Buckle and they are explained here. It sounds like that might be what you are looking for.

The recipe at this link for a Buckle may be more complicated than the one you remember but here it is:

I love cobblers so I'm sure I'd like what you are describing.
