TWD: Mixed Berry Cobbler

This weekend, I went to Memphis to visit my best friends April & Greg and of course, their dog, Banner. I know that April loves fruit as much as I do, and since cobblers usually seem to be fairly easy recipes to make, I decided that I could just make this cobbler while I was there!

My fellow Tuesdays with Dorie participants had been talking all week about how their cobbler toppings just weren't that impressive. That it was kind of flavorless. So, what did I decide to do? I decided to use a different cobbler topping from Dorie's Recipe for Cherry & Rhubarb Cobbler and instead of ginger (which I didn't have) I opted for Cinnamon. Ummm.. lots of cinnamon. Too much cinnamon, in fact.

The berries (raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries) weren't super flavorful and the topping just turned out too dang cinnamon-y. Uggh. My bad on this one. Better luck next time.

Thanks to Beth of Our Sweet Life for this summery selection! Be sure to check out everyone else's cobblers at Tuesdays with Dorie!

You don't until you try! Sorry it didn't turn out like you expected.

P.S. You were in my neck of the woods! I'm a Memphis girl too :)

IMO, the original topping was fabulous, so I'd suggest that next time. It looks pretty though!

Too bad it didn't work. I have a heavy hand with the cinnamon so I know from experience. I would suggest the original topping. I thought it worked well.

Wow. I didn't know there was such a thing as too much cinnamon. Thsnks for the update, but sorry you had to learn the hard way!
