This easy cobbler makes the most of spring and summer berries. Use a mix of your usual favorites, get creative with some wild berries, or just use whatever is available and in season. It's super easy to prepare, and you can keep extra streusel in the freezer for future use.
Technique tip: Reduce the amount of sugar in the filling if your berries are very sweet. Make streusel ahead of time and put in zip-lock bag in freezer. It's OK if the streusel is frozen when places on berries before baking.
