It’s something special when you can offer up a scrumptious desert cooked right at the campsite.
The topping for this cobbler is as quick and easy as they get. Just get yourself a refrigerated tube of buttermilk biscuits, cut them up, and sugar them with brown sugar. Then you lay them on top of the fruit mix, and you’re good to go! This is a great way to go for a camping cobbler recipe, because you don’t need a bunch of ingredients and to mix them at the campsite, or even at home ahead of time.
As for baking, we offer up the temps and times for the oven at home, but anyone who knows their way around a Dutch oven even a little bit, knows how to use charcoal briquets to match the results from the electric or gas oven you can set and forget … almost.
