Sort of like a fruitless cobbler...my mom tells me that my great grandmother would make this in a pinch when company was coming over. In a pinch, 2 refrigerated pie crusts will work for the 'dough.'

  • Stir the flour and salt together in a mixing bowl. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup of water until a dough forms. Divide the dough into thirds, roll 1/2 inch thick, and cut into strips 1 inch wide; set aside.

  • Bring the vinegar, 2 cups water, sugar, and vanilla extract to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Drop 2/3 of the dough strips into the boiling liquid. Once the liquid returns to a boil, pour into a 8x8 inch baking dish. Use the remaining dough strips to form a crisscross pattern on top of the cobbler. Dot the top with the softened butter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the dough strips are golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes.
