Lemon dessert lovers, this one is for you! Magic Lemon Cobbler is so fun and easy to make. A tender buttermilk cobbler with sweet and tart lemon pie filling–this dessert is so fresh and perfect with a big dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.
This wonderful cobbler really is magic! Simply pour the batter into a casserole dish with melted butter, add the pie filling on top, and while it bakes the lemon pie filling and the cobbler magically switch places. Such a fun dessert!
