Now that all this fresh fruit is available I was feeling sorry for myself 
because I wanted  cobblers and thought it was impossible with a very low fat 
diet.  I have a great recipe for a cobbler which is done in the microwave. 
Nancy, another poster here on the ffd, came up with the topping recipe which 
she found in the Secrets Of Fat Free Baking.  Between the two of them we 
think we have a winner!   Any fruit filling can be used as long as it is 
piping hot and ready to go when you add the topping.
Nancy used yogurt in her topping and I used buttermilk and both came out 
excellent.  The one change I would make with the topping though would be to 
cut back on the liquid so you would have a stiffer batter which could be 
spooned out into individual dumplings.

NOTES : I would cut back on the amount of buttermilk to make a batter that 
can be spooned out in definate lumps.
