May Cobblers Be Served at Room Temperature?

Please say yes.

I'm on the October birthday committee at work and I'm sick of bringing cookies.

Whyever not? As far as I know it's cooked fruit with a dumpling sort of thing on top. Certainly when I was in school we were served room-temperature cobblers.

(BTW: In UK school-speak, when something is "a load of cobblers" it's "a load of nonsense.")

Sure. People can warm it up in the microwave, too? They may.

My mom served cobbler right out of the oven, at room temp and out of the fridge.  It all depended on how long it had been since it was baked.

Particularly if it's a vegan recipe you don't have to worry about stuff like egg, milk products etc going off.

I'm sure it will be fine, food safety wise.  Two coworkers said it HAD to be warm to be good.

I would just say your coworkers have picky taste buds.  Let them zap it if they want.  I would eat it whatever temp it was served and be grateful someone made it for me.  If they don't eat it, more for everyone else :devilwink:

YES. HH, I would eat cold cobbler any day of the week, particularly yours.

not really sure what a cobbler is (and too lazy to google) but I *think* it's some sort of fruit pie or crumble type thing....both of which can be eaten hot, cold, room temp, so I'd say yes it can be and tell your co-workers who want it warm to go stuff themselves and eat it room temp.

A cobbler I think is like a fruit pie. You can compare the two to each other.

I think a fruit pie is pretty good warm but cold it's out of this world.

If your still worried about it put the cobbler in a large tupperware container close it, put in a plastic bag and then put freezer packs in the plastic bag.

And I must say you must work in a very nice place. October birthday committee,I never heard of such a thing. Your bosses must be awesome.

I'm going to suggest it then.

Our month always does the same thing:  1 sheet cake, 5 types of cookies (me), 2 loafs of dessert bread, 1 bowl of fresh fruit, 2 types of ice cream & soda. 

I say exchange the cake and most of the cookies with the cobbler, but keep the fruit.  If I had a maker, I'd offer to make them vegan ice cream.

I was making blackberry cobbler when one of DD's Hispanic friends came by and she had never heard of it.  I described it to her as fruit topped by sweet biscuts and baked.  She told me it was an accurate description.   and tasted very good.

There are only 60 of us, but we're all about the birthday offerings not being skimpy - and most of that will disappear.  (In gov'ment work, the office can't ever buy anything for us.  Especially not morale/socializing things like dessert.)

Well if there are other choices, any pussyfeet can just eat somethin' else.
You make that cobbler, woman!

aaah, but what type of biscuits....I get so confused by you US people and your weird 'it's kinda like a biscuit, kinda like a scone'  to me a biscuit could never be mistaken for a scone ::).........................and end random whining about silly terminology.

UK "Biscuit" = US "cookie."
US "Biscuit" = Plain UK "scone" (NZ "pikelet" only not cut in wedges like in NZ)
US "scone" = UK "fruit scone"
