Delicious Cherry Cobbler made with fresh cherries and an easy seven ingredient flaky buttery biscuit dough. Top with fresh whipped cream or real vanilla ice cream and the end result is pure heaven. This is one of hubby’s favorite desserts and one of the main reasons he spends time picking the cherries off of our tree at the top of our hill. Cobblers are always a huge hit at our house. As a matter of fact I haven’t met one I didn’t love yet. This recipe, Strawberry Cobbler, Blackberry Cobbler, and Blueberry Cobbler are just a few of our favorites.
