A warm dessert is often a good idea for a summer night. It can get chilly at the end of the evening, and you might have to run into the house to find cardigans or scarves for your guests (well, maybe only for the ladies).
Make sure you have preheated the oven just before you start to finish off the main dish. You can make these cobblers up front and keep them in the fridge just until you pop them in the oven. Do this when you go back out to the garden to enjoy the Italian chicken with your guests.
DON'T FORGET TO SET A TIMER!
This will come in handy when you're all caught up in a huge discussion at the dinner table and you've totally forgotten that the dessert is burning in the oven!
Learn! It happened to me too often.
This is one of my favorite desserts. And maybe just because it contains rhubarb! If you don't like rhubarb or you can't get your hands on it, use peaches, pineapple, or pears instead. Decrease the amount of sugar, though, when you prebake the fruit — rhubarb is far more sour.
Serve the little rhubarb cobblers with sour cream, whipped cream, or ice cream: I leave that part up to you.
That's it! A summer dinner party is so simple, isn't it? Easy as pie... eh, cobblers.
