Notes & Options:
There are lots of ways to modify this cranberry cobbler to spice it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:
– Using fresh cranberries is always best but if you can’t then frozen work just as well.
– Add some nuts to the filling. I recommend chopped almonds.
– Some fruit like blueberries are not always easy to find so feel free to substitute with strawberries, raspberries or even blackberries to counter the delicious but tart cranberry taste.
Make it Healthy – Replacing the sugar in the filling and topping with granulated sweetener will ensure your cobbler is sugar free and purely a starch food. Like eating fruit and crust – much healthier.
