Uncle Les's Cobbler

Triple berry honey roasted almond cobbler. Inspired by Uncle Les.
Uncle Les taught me this recipe. It is so easy and delicious. There are many variations you can do too. All you need is any pie filing that you like. Uncle Les's favorite is peach pie filing. You will also need a yellow cake mix and a stick of butter. Some times I add nuts on top.

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 13 by 9 glass baking dish. For this cobbler I used berry pie filing and also added a handful of fresh berries (blackberry's, blueberry's and raspberry's). Put this mixture in the baking dish. Then take yellow cake mix and sprinkle on top of the pie filing mixture, make sure to break up all the clumps.This part does not have to be perfect, just evenly spread out on top of the pie filing.To add a little extra crunch top with a couple handfuls of sliced nuts ( I used honey roasted almonds). Finally slice up some butter in thin little squares and place over the top every where. The butter will melt in the oven creating the perfect crust. Bake for about 45 minutes until nice and bubbly and golden on top. You will know the cobbler is close to done when you can smell the goodness, I promise.

Options: Be creative
  • Pie filings include: Peach, Apple, Berry....
  • Toppings that you can add to the top, under the butter: Nuts, Coconut, Cinnamon, Dried fruits...
  • Mix ins: Fresh fruit or even nuts...
Serve with some vanilla bean ice cream and your life will be complete.
