Peaches, strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb, and apples are examples of luscious seasonal fruits that can play a starring role in the humble-but delicious-cobbler. Using good-quality fruit when making a cobbler is straightforward enough, but gauging whether your cobbler is done baking or not is also important.
One way to determine if a cobbler is done is to check for a beautifully browned crust and fruity syrup bubbling at the edges and in the center. However, a simple kitchen tool can take the guesswork out of baking and all other types of food preparation, returning more consistent results and even keeping you safe from food poisoning.
A probe thermometer is a handy tool in baking fruit cobblers and any other type of dessert that shouldn't be overcooked; the center of your cobbler reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it's done. Another thing to remember is to let the cobbler rest before serving it with vanilla ice cream or even a flavored whipped cream.
