1/4 tsp.       Cinnamon

                   Pinch of salt

4 tbsp.        Shortening or Rohr's Meats lard

1 cup                   South Mountain Creamery milk

To make biscuit dough:

Sift dry ingredients. Cut the shortening into the flour until it looks like corn meal. Add milk and combine.  Knead until blended.

To make cobbler:

Combine filling ingredients in a heavy bottom pot.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat stirring for 5 minutes.  Fill approx. 6-8 oz. soufflé cups with filling (or one 3qt. casserole pan.)

In a separate bowl, combine the topping ingredients and set aside.

Using your hands, form the biscuit dough into 3/4 in. balls.  Place balls on top of cobbler filling leaving a little space in-between.  Sprinkle on the topping, filling in around the biscuit dough.

Bake at 425 deg. For 12 minutes.
