This rhubarb and apple cobbler is perfect for kids to make on Mother's Day: The steps are few and easy to follow, and it is attractive yet requires no real decorating—you just drop the dough over the top, brush on heavy cream, add sliced almonds, and bake.

Instructions Checklist

  • Biscuit: Whisk together both flours, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter; using your fingers, work it into dry ingredients until largest pieces are the size of small peas. Add cream and almond extract; stir with a fork until a soft, sticky dough forms. Scatter in small clumps evenly over fruit in baking dish. Brush dough with cream. Sprinkle with almonds, then sanding sugar.

  • Bake until cobbler is bubbling in center and biscuits are golden brown, 55 to 60 minutes (if browning too quickly, tent with foil after about 45 minutes). Let cool on a wire rack at least 1 hour before serving warm or at room temperature, topped with more cream.
