A classic old fashioned dessert, cobblers consist of stewed fruit with a biscuit topping. Here, rhubarb is enhanced by the caramel flavors of brown sugar and the sweetness of orange juice. We suggest the tender orange-scented biscuits and sweet-tart rhubarb be served warm with creamy vanilla ice cream.
