Yield: Yields enough dough to top a 9x13-inch cobbler or to make 9 3-inch shortcake biscuits
By making your own baking mix ahead of time, homemade cobbler or shortcake is a breeze.
Try flavoring the shortcakes or cobbler topping to suit the fruit: a pinch of cinnamon and ginger into the dry mix for an apple cobbler; 1/2 cup chopped nuts to the dry mix for a peach shortcake. Extracts and zests are another option: along with the cream, try adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract for strawberry shortcakes or 1/2 tsp. almond extract for an apricot or plum cobbler.

Very good. I barely kneaded the dough. Just rolled it out and put it over the cobbler. Topping is almost cakelike or very shortbread like. Next time I will use more berries because the topping is quite thick after baking. But my family voted it a repeater. We served with ice cream.
