The cobbler pots are discontinued!

Pictured above are the Sante Cabin cobbler pots, which were sold in pairs and included a pack of cobbler mix. They only came out last year, and I'm surprised to find that they're discontinued already!

These cute little pots are just under 6 inches wide, and hold about 2 1/2 cups. One can comfortably hold a standard can of Campbell's soup.

The cobbler mix was not great, frankly. But here's an easy cobbler recipe. If you don't have these pots, not to worry-- any cast iron skillet will do!

Mix 1 cup bisquick with 1/2 cup of milk (more if needed),1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tbsp melted butter. Put your fruit in the cast iron skillet or cobbler pot. Pour the mixture over the fruit. Into the oven at 375.

I went back and forth over whether I should get these pots or not.

After all, I REALLY didn't need them-- I could make cobbler in a skillet! But they were so cute, and I could heat up soup or make hot dip in them.

Not to mention they're perfect for french onion soup, or for fondue. Bring them back!

Product info states that "Kids will love having their own dish to eat out of!"

So how about a couple of hot dip recipes?

1. Mix light cream cheese and undrained artichoke hearts in a blender. Add paprika and parmesan cheese. Heat up on the stove, in cast iron.

Heat up some frozen spinach and mix it in; It becomes spinach artichoke dip.

OR, my favorite:

2. Cube some velveeta, melt in a skillet, add in salsa*, stir, and serve with corn chips!

*Once you've tried homemade salsa, you'll never go back to the jar. Grape tomatoes, onion, minced garlic, cilantro, and 1/2 jalepeno. Mix in a blender.

You can upgrade this dip by adding cooked ground beef, cream of chicken soup, and chili powder.
