Patch Cobbler


Use your own favorite fruit filling in this old-fashioned cobbler.


  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • a few slices of fresh bread, torn into small pieces
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) pie filling, any flavor


Mix together the shortening, sugar, eggs, milk, flour and baking soda until well mixed; set aside. Lightly butter a 13x9x2-inch pan. Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with the fresh bread pieces. Pat out half of the dough and carefully place on top of bread pieces, patting gently with hands. Spread filling over the dough and then put patches of the remaining dough over top. Sprinkle with a little granulated sugar. Bake the cobbler in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the top is light brown in spots.
