Yep! You can bake the cobbler as written and allow it to cool completely, then wrap tightly in both plastic wrap and foil and store in the refrigerator for up to three months. Allow to thaw partially in the refrigerator (about 1-2 hours) and then warm the cobbler in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until cooked through and bubbly.
