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.
