The Perfect Cherry Cobbler.

Originally published April 2013.

I absolutely love a great cherry cobbler. When I think comfort food desserts, I think warm from the oven goodness.

If what you pull from the oven goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of fresh whipped cream, that’s better still.

Such was the case last weekend at Sunday dinner when our family enjoyed this uncomplicated but scrumptious cherry cobbler. I can’t think of a better end to a weekend family dinner that tops of a busy week.

Fresh Cherries are great in season.

Frozen cherries can make this recipe an economical, year round treat.

A great cobbler is always amazing when you use fresh fruit but when cherries are not in season, you can still make this delicious dessert using frozen cherries as we did here. Serve this one with your Sunday dinner and you’ll have ’em coming back for more every week.

A great cherry cobbler recipe to make the best of ripe fresh cherries in an amazing warm comfort food dessert. Frozen cherries will work well out of season.

Ingredients

For the fruit layer

  • 4 cups cherries, fresh or frozen and pitted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water

For the cobbler

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp butter, very cold and cut in cubes
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk

Instructions

To prepare the bottom fruit layer:

  1. Bring the cherries, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon to a slow simmer for about 5 minutes.
  2. Dissolve the corn starch in the water.
  3. Stir into the fruit mixture and then pour the fruit into a 9x9 inch baking pan.

For the cobbler dough

  1. Sift together the flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  2. Cut the butter in with a pastry blender or by pulsing it in a food processor until it resembles a coarse meal.
  3. Beat together the egg, milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Add to dry ingredients and mix together just until dough forms.
  5. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the hot cherries.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the cherries are bubbling at the center of the pan and the top of the cobbler is golden brown.
  7. Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or thick cream.
