    Sounds good! [:)O]
    While working at a scout camp, we had a weekly cobbler contest. Ate some great cobbler and some not so edible cobblers. One troop used fruit cocktail and added walnuts to the crumble topping. Makes me hungry thinking about it. :)

    Will make sure DH sees this. He does DO cooking demos for Cub Scout pack every spring, and is always looking for a new recipe. Sounds like a good one!

    What size of DO do you use for this recipe?

    The measurements look like what I use for my 12".

    That's a great idea, adding the instant oatmeal. I wonder if you could skip the brown sugar and cinnamon if you used brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal. I'll try it and report back.

    I am new to DO cooking and am having a great time learning how. Thank you for this recipe! I used this recipe while camping this weekend [CP].

    I used my 10 inch DO and I made a few modifications. I used quick oats instead of instant, I did not have any instant on hand. I used Splenda brand brown sugar along with cinnamon and some nutmeg. It turned out fantastic!

    I love the idea of adding walnuts to this recipe, it would be a nice addition. I did not have any available, but will stock the walnuts and make sure I try that on the next cobbler.

    Thank you again!

    I've made DO cobblers often, and recommend lining the DO cobbler with heavy duty foil first. That way you have easy clean-up. Also, if you don't have canned pie filling, you can use canned fruit and add sugar and corn starch to it. Did it with canned peaches over the weekend and it was fabulous!

    For the canned peaches version - do you pour in the juice or just the peaches?

    We cooked this TREAT up a couple weeks ago when camping with several families. FYI, we did 1 can of light cherry pie filling, 1 can of regular (DW trying to cut calories) and it came out fine. We even sprinkled chopped pecans on 1/2 of it for the nut-lovers in the group. This was a real crowd pleaser, for sure. It even had several leaving that weekend saying they were going to go purchase a DO so they could do desserts like that.

    My question, to the cobbler/DO pros - how in the wide wide world of sports do I easily clean my DO after doing cobbler? Most of my DO recipes to date have been full of fluid (meat cooked in beer) so I haven't had much issue with cleaning up. After this recipe, I had some good cherry pie filing caked/baked on to the sides of the DO. I have seen people in the past line their DO with foil and I'm guessing that might keep cleanup to a minimum, but guessing my DW might object to this as it is contributing foil to the landfill (a feller just can't win these days)!

    Any input is welcome. Thanks MUCH for this crowd-pleasing recipe!!! Cheers...jeff
