Cobbler In A Jar

You can make this yummy treat right now!
It's that easy!
Use any fresh fruit you have and just a
few basic pantry staples. You'll also need 
four 1/2-pint canning jars (1 C).
 Peel (if necessary) and cut up the fruit to have 
about 2-1/2 C. I used peaches and strawberries.
Think of the yummy combinations!
In a small bowl mix the 3 dry ingredients.
 Add the fruit to 1/2 pint canning jars,
top with the dry mixture, 
then add a pat of butter,
 Put the jars in a baking pan to make it easy to 
transfer in and out of the oven.
 Don't let the jars touch.
 Bake @350º about 50-60 minutes. 
I like that I can easily just make 2.
 Let cool a bit and top with whipped cream. 
A very nice afternoon coffee treat.
Let the jars cool completely and
screw on the tops. This make them
perfect for picnics, lunch boxes, or 
small gifts. If you don't have canning jars
 you can bake these baby cobblers in a
 pretty ovenproof tea cup. 
This recipe makes 4, but I cut the 
recipe in half today for the 2 of us. 

Cobbler In A Jar
2-1/2 C fresh fruit
1/2 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1/4 t salt
4 T butter
Peel and cut up the fruit and divide
among four 1/2 pint canning jars.
Combine the sugar, flour, and salt in
a small bowl. Top the fruit with the
mixture, dividing evenly; about 1/4 C
in each. Put 1T of butter on top.
Pace in a pan, do not let the jars touch,
Bake @350º for 50-60 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream or
whipped cream. 
let cool completely to cap.



  1. OMG!!! They look amazing and I bet they taste great!!! What a great idea for my Bunco dinner.

  2. What temperature did you cook them, looks wonderful

  3. Oh how yummy these look, Rita May! I like the idea of the cobbler vs pie crust, which I've seen used several times with the canning jars. Your way is so much more simple and easier to control the fat and calorie ingredients.

  4. OMG~ You did it again. I can see this for a party. Everyone can make their own and they bake while dinner is being served. Or just a fun treat for the grandkids. Love your recipes.
