Mango-Blueberry Cobbler


This dish couldn’t be easier or more like comfort food Grandma used to make.  All you do is slice some fruit, sprinkle with spices, plop it into a baking dish and cover it with a simple biscuit topping, and bake! 

It doesn’t really matter what fruit you choose – everything is good made this way.  You could also use sliced peaches or apples instead of the mango. Frozen blueberries would work as well.
