Only 5 ingredients needed for this delicious Deep Dish Cobbler Pie. Use your favorite pie filling, such as apple, cherry, or blackberry. Super easy, just dump and bake. Don’t forget the ice cream, though. Nothing like hot cobbler pie a la mode.
This is a super easy recipe. No kidding. Life can be challenging enough, so this easy dessert is a pleasure.
A dear friend, Shar, gave me this 100 year-old recipe she got from her sister. I can see why it stood the test of time. It’s delicious, simple as that.
Even better, you can flavor it with your favorite pie filling. I love apple, but I’m going to try blueberry next time. Shar loves cherry, but I’m going to take her some apple to try.
If you have a homemade pie filling recipe, by all means, use that. I’m keeping it simple with only 5 ingredients, but we all love homemade with that magic ingredient of love.
What size dish should I use for this Deep Dish Cobbler Pie recipe?
I made this in a 2 quart Pyrex, and it did creep up the sides a bit while baking. It didn’t over-flow, though.
Side note: this dessert is really good cold, too. I just took a bite while I was measuring the dish for you. It’s 9″ wide by 3″ high.
It doesn’t need to be glass, but this way you can see inside the cobbler.
This is why I want to try the blueberry. I just know that blue-purple of the blueberries would look great under that sweet buttery crust.
Where do I start?
Melt the butter in the microwave and pour it into the glass dish.
Second, mix together the sugar, flour, and milk in a separate bowl. This is the only step, by the way, that requires you to stir or mix anything.
Pour this mixture over the butter, but “please no stirring.” (Direct quote from original recipe.)
Since you don’t mix it with the butter, pour it so it covers evenly. In other words, don’t just pour it in one blob in the center.
Lastly, spoon the pie filling evenly over the other ingredients.
Still no mixing, no stirring, no nothing. Just spoon it in and get ready to be pleasantly surprised by how easily this dessert turns into a delicious treat.
How will I know the cobbler pie is done?
Easy. The crust will turn to a beautiful golden brown, especially at the edges.
The bake time is 50 to 60 minutes, depending on what elevation you live at.
Check it after 50 minutes. If it’s not turning a golden brown, set the timer for another 5 minutes. I had to bake mine for the full 60 minutes, but it could be different for you.
