custard powder and put this mixture in a greased oven dish. Mix the
flour with the butter and 1 tablespoon sugar and knead this quickly

A cobbler is an
American deep fruit dish, and the
fruit is covered by a crust, usually out of biscuit dough. You can use
many different fruits like cherries,
peaches, blackberries or
apples. The name is derived from
the fact that the top layer looks like "cobbles". The
British call it "pandowdy"
(dowdied means broken). The cobbler looks very much like a
crumble, but the crumbles
are Coarse; also, recipes for cobblers are much older.
