Cherry Cobbler


It is pretty difficult for me to choose a favorite dessert of all-time, but if I had to choose my favorite would have to be peach cobbler.  That’s probably a shocker to those who know me best – since I am a self proclaimed chocoholic.  But my heart belongs to cobblers filled with yummy seasonal fruits.  I said peach, because it always reminds me of picking peaches off my  little grandma’s peach tree, and the heavenly aroma that wafted through the air of good eats on the way.  Truthfully any cobbler will due for me.  This recipe is my base for peach cobbler, but I use it to make nectarine blueberry & cherry cobblers with it as well.   Top the cobbler with your favorite vanilla ice cream, and that’s dessert heaven right there, my friend. :)



Fruit layer:

2 cups of fresh cherries, pitted

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons cornstarch

Top layer:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons, unsalted chilled butter, cut into cubes

1/4 cup boiling water


1 tablespoon white sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400° F

In a baking dish combine all the fruit layer ingredients, and toss to coat all cherries. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugars & then cut in the butter. Dough should look like coarse crumbs. Add in boiling water. Stir until just combined.

Remove the cherry mixture from the oven, and drop the topping on top of the fruit mixture.

Sprinkle the top with the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Then bake for 30 minutes, or until topping in golden brown and cooked through.
