Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Most grocery stores sell purplish-blue plums, but did you know that plums also come in yellow, green and red?
  • tip 2
    Keep things simple by mixing the cobbler dough in the food processor. Use the plastic blade, and pulse dough just until combined for the most tender biscuits.
