Had a request for the Fresh Cherry Cobbler too.
This is ofcourse like my peach cobbler...yum yum
It's hard to deside just which I like best (I lean a bit to the Cherry side).

I used to make these kinds of cobblers all the time in huge quanities when I cooked at the Senior Citizen Center and for Meals on Wheels...made them both ways. Made some with sugar and some with splenda as we had a lot of diabetics and they loved cobbler too.

They would get so tired of having Vanilla Wafers, Fruit Cups...etc.
So I tried my best to revamp a lot of desserts for them to be able to eat too.

THEN, would you believe, I was diagnosed with diabetes myself.

I was soooo bumbed out, because my Hubby is the "Sweetaholic" not me!!!
I always watched what I ate and thought I was eating healthy.

I didn't even have anyone in my family (that I kenw of) that had ever had diabetes.
Doctor said, "sometimes it just happens"
