Berry Grunt

Oxmoor House
This old-fashioned dessert is similar to a cobbler, but it has fluffy dumplings on top and is so much faster to prepare. Using a skillet with straight sides allows enough room for the dumplings to rise without touching the lid.
8 servings (serving size: about 1/3 cup berry mixture and 1 dumpling)
