Cobblers and crisps are a wonderful way to add fruit to your menu.

Peach Dessert


2 – #2 Cans or 3 – 15 oz. Cans of Sliced Peaches
1 18.25 oz. Box - Yellow Cake Mix (A yellow cake mix for a two layer cake)
½ Cup (1 Stick) Butter or Margarine


Preheat the oven to 350°

Pour the peaches, including the juice into an ungreased 13” x 9” cake pan. Melt the butter in a measuring cup, in the microwave. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the peaches. Drizzle the melted butter over the dry cake mix. Bake at 350° for 35–45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream, whipped topping (Cool Whip) or vanilla ice cream. Refrigerate leftovers.


A number two can is 20 ounces, which the original recipe calls for 2 #2 cans, but I used 3 -15 ounce cans and removed about 5 tablespoons of juice and 3 slices of peaches and it turned out very well. This is especially delicious and very easy and quick to make. This recipe works well with apricots also.

Apple Crisp


4 Apples, peeled and chopped or thinly sliced
½ Cup quick cooking oats
½ Cup brown sugar, packed
¼ Cup all-purpose flour
½ Teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
¼ Cup cold butter or margarine
Whipped Topping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place the fruit in the individual glass dishes. In another bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the fruit. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the fruit is tender. Cool slightly and serve with whipped topping.


This desert may also be cooked in a microwave oven, on high for 2 ½ minutes or until the fruit is tender. This dessert can be served cold.
