What are Fruit Cobblers
Cobblers are sweet or savoury dish consisting of fruit filling baked, covered with batter or dough. In some cobbler recipes, batter is poured on the fruit filling and some have thick pie crust on top or bottom or both. Many like to top cobbler with crumbles also.
Many people also confuse, cobbler with crumbles or crisp. These three may sound similar but are a lot different from each other.
Cobbler is a baked fruit dessert layered or topped with thick dough of biscuits or pies. In many versions now, fruit filling is also baked with batter made with flour and milk. this has cakey texture as the batter bakes but down below is the juicy baked fruit filling.

Crumble- Many fins crumbles similar to crisp but in traditional crumble recipes, the topping is strudel kinds, made with flour, sugar and butter. It rarely has oats or nuts.Cobbler topping is not clumpy like crispy topping.
