Rasberry Cobbler

Last week at the market I couldn't resist buying a quart of the most beautiful raspberries I had ever laid eyes on. They were plump, juicy and bright red. You could just tell by sight that they were at the peak of perfection. So when I got them home I decided to use them right away while they were at their peak. I didn't have any chocolate in the house (which is my usual pairing with raspberries) so I went online for some inspiration. There I found a raspberry cobbler. It looked great and I had never made one before.

This was a fabulous recipe. It was so easy to make (like 2 bowls easy) and tasted just delicious. It was so good that my husband and I finished it off in two sittings. Then I went to my cousin's house the next day for a brunch, and brought a raspberry cobbler and a blueberry cobbler and both were finished off in no time. This is a great base recipe, and can easily be adapted to whatever berry you have on hand which I love. Eat this hot out of the oven with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have got yourself a perfect dessert.

This was delicious!!!! But wondered if the butter amount was correct. Mine was literally floating in butter, so I will cut that down for next time. It was to die for though!
