                        Mountain Cobbler

                1 C sourdough culture           2 t cinnamon
                1 1/2 C flour                   1/2 C oil
                1/2 C brown sugar               2 cans cherry pie filling
                1/2 C sugar

        Mix starter, flour, sugars, cinnamon, and oil in a bowl.  Place 
        cherry filling in bottom of oven; then spread the bowl of mix on top.
        Bake 25-30 minutes in covered oven.  Serves 8.


                1.  Blueberry filling instead of cherry
                2.  Add 1 C of raisins with the fruit filling
                3.  Add 1/2 C of chopped pecans.

        Never a mention of temperature or number of coals or amount
        in any of these recipes.  From experience you can omit the
        yeast in the "Rancher's bread".   You might expect a little
        longer wait, but the times given are reasonable for the Alaskan
        culure I use.  Also you might try replacing the 1 C water with
        a second C sourdough culture.  You should expect this to make
        at least 2 loaves for a 10" oven.
