Beginning as a variation on pies, cobblers date back to the 1850s. The traditional New England concoction used a thick, biscuit topping instead of pie pastry. You might not think of cobbler as heavy, but the typical topping contains ingredients like full-fat sour cream and whipping cream. Our switch to fat-free sour cream is undetectable (except in the nutritional profile). The new cobbler has just half the fat of the classic recipe but maintains great buttery flavor in the topping.
