Why You Should Make Cobbler Instead of Pie

I like my men like I like my cream—just barely whipped
Photo: Claire Lower

Baking is less about feeding oneself and more about having a hobby, and I tend to gravitate toward dead-simple recipes I can throw together on a whim. Though I have absolutely nothing against perfectly executed pastry, it takes a certain amount of patience to make such, which is why I bake my bounty of summer fruits into cobblers rather than pies.


Cobblers are not only much more forgiving than their pastry-enrobed cousins, they come together so much faster. (Case in point: microwave mug cobbler.) Soupy, juicy fillings are the bane of the pie maker, but they’re practically encouraged in the world of cobblers; their biscuity dough soaks up fruity sauce without mushing out. Then there is the matter of time commitment. Pie dough takes rolling, folding, and resting, and unless you have a bunch of pre-made crusts ready to go, there’s simply no way you’ll get a pie on the table as fast as a cobbler. Cobbler also cools much faster than pie, which means you get to eat it much faster than pie.

Photo: Claire Lower

Now, depending on where you’re from, your vision of what, exactly, a cobbler “is” may be a little different than mine. I have always enjoyed a simple drop biscuit or baking mix-based crust, because cakey and biscuity are my two favorite textures to pair with syrupy fruits. I also don’t sweeten the fruit too much, as I like a cobbler that can be eaten for breakfast with cold slices of cream cheese, but you can always add more sugar if you like; such is the joy of cobbler. I have been making some variation of the Bisquick recipe since I was a child, as I’ve found it takes very well to whatever nonsense I throw at it. For a very basic cobbler, you will need:


  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 cups of fruit
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup of sugar, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups baking mix
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • Other things you may need: lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, booze, perhaps even more sugar


This is just the bare-berry recipe. You can of course tweak both the filling and the topping as you see fit. Let’s address each component on its own:

The Butter

This part is very easy; just melt the butter in the microwave (or on the stove) and pour it in an eight- or nine-inch square pan. I have also used pans that were not that size, as well as cast iron skillets, and everything turned out fine; it affects the timing, so you have to keep an eye on it while it cooks—once the top gets golden brown, take it out.


You can use salted or unsalted butter, but I prefer salted, because I love a salty-sweet contrast and I think it makes it more breakfast friendly.

The Fruit

Both water and sugar content vary from fruit to fruit, and your approach should vary accordingly. First, taste your berry or drupe, and see what sweetness it’s bringing on it’s own. I usually toss whatever I’m working with with at least 1/4 cup of sugar, but you can increase it to a 1/2 cup, or omit it entirely if you have a very ripe batch. If you’re using frozen fruit, rinse it to thaw and let if dry on some paper towels.


I like to leave my berries whole, but peaches and other such fruits should be peeled and chopped (no doy). Once the fruit is prepped, toss it with your desired amount of sugar. If you want to get a little fancier you can add a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice, a tablespoon or lemon or orange zest, a teaspoon of vanilla (or bourbon), or swap out the plain white sugar for brown sugar. If you’re using a chopped fruit, let everything hang out in the bowl for half an hour and let the sugar and extracted juices from a nice sauce.

The Topping

Sift half a cup of sugar with the baking mix, adding 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon or freshly grated nutmeg (or both!) if it is what your heart wants. Stir in the milk to make a dough. It’s very easy.


Putting It All Together

Pour the melted butter into your pan, pour the batter on top of that, and distribute the fruit in an even manner over the batter. Sprinkle some course sugar on top if you like. Pop that mess in a 350-degree oven, and bake until the top is golden brown, and the fruit is bubbling. If you are using a dish that is larger than the suggested eight- or nine-inch square, this could be as little as half an hour, but it usually takes about 40 minutes. Let your cobbler cool for about 10 minutes, then serve with ice cream, very softly whipped cream, or—if you’re eating it for breakfast—cold slices of cream cheese.

5 Things PrepDeck Can Do That a Normal Cutting Board Can’t

Considering all the work that goes into a great home-cooked meal, it’s honestly sometimes a miracle that any of us cook at all. The more elaborate the meal, the greater the prep, and usually, what’s left is a post-meal cleanup that has you questioning why you even fired up the stovetop in the first place.

RELATED   The *Real* Secret to Cooking like a Pro at Home »

Conventional wisdom says the key to more efficient (and therefore, more enjoyable) time in the kitchen is to keep organized. As anyone who’s ever spent any time clicking around the Internet knows, this is called mis en place, the French culinary term for prepping all the ingredients you need for a recipe. It’s an especially useful concept in professional kitchens, where line cooks at prep stations must expedite hundreds of dishes over the course of a service, and do so in a consistent and and orderly manner. 

If you’re looking to recreate some of that restaurant magic at home, check out PrepDeck, the just-released all-in-one professional prep station for the home cook. A kitchen perfectionist’s dream setup, it’s got everything needed to measure, prepare and store ingredients as you go, containing 45 different features and accessories in a compact case that’s pretty enough to be displayed on the kitchen counter when not in use. The Indiegogo project hit its funding goal in a mere 14 hours, but if that’s not enough to convince you, here are five things PrepDeck can do your normal cutting board wish it could.

It will keep you organized and tidy. Fold the cutting board out and you’ll reveal a brilliant modular system of containers for storing ingredients before they hit the pan. This includes large, medium and small plastic containers that can fit in the system or stand on its own, meant to hold everything from diced vegetables to pre-measured herbs and sauces.

It has a built-in spot for kitchen scraps. The secret to easier cleanup? Cleaning as you go. PrepDeck’s integrated trash compartment serves as an easy way to sweep trimmings out of the way  while you prep. When you’re gone, cleaning is as easy as sliding the compartment out.

It can juice, zest and . . . do a lot of other things. What you may not realize is the PrepDeck is more than just a cutting board with prep containers. The system also includes an accessory drawer that slides out to show a whole host of useful kitchen tools, from a zester and slicer to a grater and a dedicated juicer. The tools are made to fit atop the containers, which makes prep even easier.

It holds your tablet or phone for easy recipe access. An add-on gadget stand makes referencing recipes effortless. Not following a recipe? You’ve got a makeshift TV stand now.

It disguises itself as a sleek modern kitchen accessory. Perhaps PrepDeck’s greatest strength is that it’s aesthetically pleasing even when it’s not in use. While the cutting board is magnetic and easily removable, it also serves as the cover for the system. Available in rose, mint and walnut, or black or white marble, there are enough options here to go with any kitchen, no matter the size or look.

Five Must-Read Articles About Mexico’s New President

Mexico’s President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador speaks during a press conference in Mexico City, on July 5, 2018. – Lopez Obrador said Thursday he will invite US President Donald Trump to his inauguration on December 1, the leftist leader’s latest olive branch after two years of deeply strained ties. (Photo by RONALDO SCHEMIDT / AFP) 

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), a captivating and controversial Mexican politician, won his country’s 2018 presidential election in a landslide victory of historic proportions on July 1. AMLO’s election has the potential to significantly alter Mexico’s economy, political dynamics, and relationship with the U.S. Over the last few days I’ve been tweeting a lot of great articles about the election and Mexico’s future.

On July 2 I shared this thought-provoking essay in Foreign Affairs by Shannon K. O’Neil, a Mexico expert at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the article O’Neil explains:

A big question now is what López Obrador will do. His campaign revealed a multitude of voices and positions, with his surrogates often contradicting both the candidate and themselves. But even more important for Mexico’s future will be how López Obrador chooses to enact his policies—and whether he will abide by the often frustrating institutional checks and balances within Mexico’s democratic political system.

On July 3 I tweeted this Los Angeles Times article that explains:

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s landslide victory in Mexico’s presidential race Sunday was not just a triumph for the left. It was also sweet redemption for a man who spent more than a dozen years running for the office. After two losses [in 2006 and 2012], his self-discipline and dogged, near-constant schedule of campaigning finally paid off.

On July 4 I shared this Washington Post op-ed by senior Brookings Institute fellow and former Mexican ambassador to the US Arturo Sarukhan. In the op-ed Sarukhan explains, “Fed up with politics and politicians as usual and driven by the tone-deafness and hubris of the three mainstream political parties, Mexicans chose someone to kick the legs out from under the table instead of simply resetting the dinnerware.” 

On July 5 I tweeted this essay by Mexican academic and human rights activist Sergio Aguayo for The Guardian which I think contains an important long-view (and leftist) perspective on the historical events of Mexican politics that led to AMLO’s election. This article proved to be the most controversial one I shared. It sparked an interesting and sometimes testy Twitter debate about the author’s allegation that AMLO lost Mexico’s 2006 presidential election in part due to “massive electoral fraud.

On July 6 I shared this great essay by Jon Lee Anderson for The New Yorker. He writes:

During his [2018] Presidential campaign, [Lopez Obrador] also made huge efforts to reach out to his traditional foes in the private-sector business élite, who fear that López Obrador is a socialist in sheep’s clothing. This all-powerful cabal of Mexican empresarios has been crucial in keeping him out of power in the past. Almost everyone in Mexico agrees that, in the 2006 election, for instance, when López Obrador lost by less than a half of one per cent of the vote to his pan rival, Felipe Calderón, it was fraud, aided and abetted by the private sector.
