I made this Cherry Cobbler this afternoon.

Cherry Cobbler

We picked the cherries a couple of days ago.  There’s a feeling of gratification you get when you pick the cherries, pit the cherries and turn them into a pie or cobbler.

Here’s the recipe:

Cherry Cobbler

  • 4 c. fresh cherries, unsweetened
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 T corn starch mixed with 1/3 c. water
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 c. flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder (check bottom to make sure not expired)
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 slightly beaten egg
  • 1/4 c. milk

Combine the cherries, sugar and corn starch mixture in saucepan.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly.  Add the 1 T butter and keep warm.

To make the biscuit mixture combine the flour, sugar, baking powder.  Stir.  Cut in butter so it resembles coarse crumbs.  Combine egg and milk and add to biscuit mixture.  Mix well.  Pour hot fruit in square or round 8″ pan.  Spoon on biscuit mixture over top of fruit as desired. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  Enjoy.

Make sure you put vanilla ice cream on top.  Yum!!!!

There’s bunches more to pick.  Need to get creative.
