Kathie's Story

Grandma made this recipe every year when cherries were ripe. Its so good warm with ice cream.

Ingredients

FRUIT:
1/2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 c
water
1 lb
cherries, cleaned and pitted
2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
lemon juice
3
drops red food coloring, optional
COBBLER:
1 c
flour
1 Tbsp
sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 c
oil
1/3 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For fruit mixture: Mix together sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to a boil. Add cherries and boil 1 minute over medium heat. Stir in butter, lemon juice and food coloring. Remove from heat and pour into a 10 by 6 inch baking dish or casserole dish.
2
For cobbler topping: Mix together together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in oil. Add milk and mix well. Drop by small teaspoonfuls onto hot cherry mixture.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.
3
Notes: I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top of the cobbler topping before baking.

You can use 1 (16 ounce) can of canned cherries instead of fresh. Drain them and use drained juice in place of water called for in recipe.

I'm a bit confused on this one. I made this exactly as described but my cornstarch mixture never would thicken. Isn't cornstarch supposed to be mixed into a little cold liquid and added as the mixture starts to boil?

Kathie, I didn't know you lived in North Liberty, Indiana until just now. I used to sell life and health insurance there when I lived in South Bend, I know exactly where you live! My husband really loved this cherry cobbler too! Thanks again!

I made this cobbler last night, it is the best cobbler I have ever tasted! I questioned the use of lemon juice in the cherries but made it according to the recipe, I was not sorry. I also have never heard of putting the cinnamon in the biscuit mix, and that turned out wonderful! This cobbler had the wonderful balance of sweet and sour combination. This will be my go to cobbler from now on! Thank you Kathie for sharing this awesome recipe!
