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 works just as well. I know this is a dried cran recipe but if you like the tart taste of fresh crans then I’d give it a try.
– Add some raisins to the filling if you are using fresh cranberries.
– Apricots are not always easy to find (nor are they cheap) so feel free to substitute with peaches as am alternative.
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.
