Being a Southern girl, I have had all types of fruit cobbler. It was my Gram's go to dessert. Anyway, I was at Costco and was missing home, so I bought peaches, then decided to go a step further and buy a ton of bing cherries. (My son and I can eat cherries like The Witches of Eastwick. Sorry for the vague pop culture reference.) I noticed the peaches and cherries weren't being eaten as quickly as normal. (The son was away from home) This inspired me to find a creative way to get rid of some! Hope you enjoy!
