New West Styling Tips

Serve the cobbler in a cast-iron skillet adorned with this @mtn_man_toy_shop handmade handsome spatula.  If you get a minute check out these local Jackson Hole guys who have a national presence.  They offer knives and macho items for your table and living.  Since your dessert will be warm, serve on a wooden platter putting the whipped creme in a small dish on top of the cobbler making it easy to get to.  The Vanilla Whiskey Glaze was drizzled over the cobbler before serving.
