Grape Juice Cobbler

My Grandma used to make grape jelly every summer....yum!    When she was cooking down the grapes for the jelly she used to take some of the sweet juice and make a grape juice fruit...just juice.

The grape vines behind the studio have grapes on them this year for the first time and since I don't make jelly....what can I do with a few bowls of grapes.

I remembered how good those cobblers were and decided to try to make one.   I don't have my grandma's recipe,  but I have made cobblers before I decided to give it a try.

I started with about 2 full cups of grapes....covered them with water ....and added 1/2 cup of sugar....then I simmered them on medium heat for about 15 minutes.    The kind of grapes we have in the garden are pretty sweet already,  so I didn't add much sugar.

3/4 Cup flour..........1/4 c Crisco......dash of salt.....about 3 T cold water ....made just about the right amount of crust for our small cobbler.      (4 servings)
In the first photo you can see how I sprinkled some sugar on the top crust and added a few pats of butter.    The second photo shows how I cut the other half of the crust in pieces and layered it with the grape juice.    Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until done.

 I cook "old school" so the measurements are not!

I had a little crust left,  so I sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon and baked it in the oven with the cobbler for about 10 min.   We snacked on that while we waited for the cobbler to bake.

Grape juice cobbler with a dollop of  whipped cream and a cup of tea or coffee makes a perfect dessert to enjoy after lunch!


  1. This looks delicious Penny! I love "old school" recipes ;) I hope you share this at the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week too! :)

  2. Penny, your cobbler looks wonderful! I love old school recipes and often use them myself. It makes it difficult though when someone asks for the recipe. You did a grand job of sharing yours. Thanks for joining me for tea. Happy Labour Day weekend!


  3. I have never seen that done before. I bet the kids love it!!!! x o Diana

  4. I have never heard of grape cobbler. I am use to my Mother making blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, or peach cobbler. Will have to give it a try since I love grapes.

  5. Bonjour chère amie,
