My MIL lives with us, and she is the official cobbler maker in our house. Here's her recipe - it calls for blackberries, but she makes it with whatever fruit we have on hand, and it's delicious!

June's Blackberry Cobbler

1 Cup flour
1 Cup sugar
1 tsp. Baking powder
tsp. Salt
2 pints blackberries
1 stick margarine or butter
cup milk
cup sugar for top of cobbler
cinnamon and/or nutmeg (optional)

Sift together dry ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 1 cube margarine in oven in 9x13" pan. When melted, pour in dry ingredients and milk to make batter. Distribute fruit evenly on top. Do not stir. Distribute cup of sugar on top. Sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg on top. Bake about 30 minutes or until done. Puncture crust with toothpick to determine if done.
