When I saw that cherries were free at Earth Fare this week (and fairly inexpensive just about everywhere . . .) I knew it was time to re-post our family's favorite Cherry Cobbler recipe! Sometimes it's difficult to find a recipe that calls for fresh cherries (and canned cherries can get so expensive!), so this is a great time to treat of year to treat your family to some fresh cobbler.
This cobbler should cost between $3-$4 for the entire pan which will easily serve eight happy helpings (even less if you score the cherries free at Earth Fare!) So, for just $.50 per serving, there's no reason not to bake some up at your house this week . . I promise, your family will be so glad you did!

It might look good in the picture but I didn’t care for itat all. It baked into a disgusting mess.
I’m so sorry it didn’t work for you Vicki ~ we really loved it and I’m not sure what would have changed it… I hate that! 🙁
Peaches were on sale at Publix this week and I managed to find some that were ripe and ready to be cobblered. I replaced the cherries in your recipe with peaches….yummm. Cherries next!!!
Ooooooooh… I bet it would be fantastic with peaches (my husband is a peach cobbler fanatic, so I don’t know what I didn’t think to try it sooner!) Thanks so much for letting me know Jill ~ so glad you liked it! 🙂
