    Five long-time rhubarb cobbler connoisseurs tried this and all pronounced it excellent. I made it exactly as in the recipe, except used brown sugar instead of white. It was quick and easy.

    I use this recipe often and have had professional chefs ask for this recipe. I also use other fruits and berries in place of the apples. It is easy and delicious.

    I made this recipe and put it in individual ramkins instead of a baking pan. I thought it made a better presentation that way. Excellent recipe.
