Country Cooking With Sue Davis

Fruit cobblers are called by many names – tarts, crunches, crisps. But no matter what you call them, they are all based on fruit or berries and are all delicious and easy to prepare. Perhaps this is why they are a favorite of many cooks. These recipes are some of my favorites and I hope that you will try them.

Celess’ Blueberry Crunch

1 – 20 oz can undrained crushed pineapple
2-3 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen
¾ c. white sugar
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick margarine, melted
1 c. chopped pecans
¼ c. brown sugar

Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish or pan, spreading the following in layers: pineapple, blue berries, ¾ cup white sugar sprinkled on berries, dry yellow cake mix, melted margarine, pecans and ¼ cup brown sugar sprinkled on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until brown on top. Service warm or cold. Delicious with vanilla ice cream.

Banana Split Dessert

2 c. vanilla wafers, crumbled
5 bananas, split in half
3 sticks margarine
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 box powdered sugar, blue box
3 eggs
1 large tub Cool Whip
1 medium size jar cherries
1 c. chopped or whole pecans

Melt margarine and pour over wafer crumbs. Mix until all crumbs are covered. Spread in bottom of pan, refrigerate while mixing filling. Combine rest of margarine with powdered sugar and eggs and mix for 15 minutes or until thick. Spread over crust. Top with bananas and pineapple. Spread Cool Whip on top with cherries and pecans. Refrigerate overnight, 2-3 hours, whichever you like.

2 c. peaches (can use fresh or canned)
½ c. sugar
1 stick margarine

Combine fruit and ½ cup sugar. Set aside. Set oven at 350 degrees. Put margarine in very deep baking dish or pan and melt in oven. Make a batter of 1 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and milk. Pour this over melted margarine. Do not stir. Put prepared fruit over this. Bake at 350 degrees until top browns, approximately 30 minutes. When done, fruit will be on bottom.
