The sales on cherries are at the lowest price of the year, however it's sometimes difficult to find a recipe that actually uses fresh cherries! Many cherry recipes call for canned cherries or cherry pie filling, which can be incredibly expensive.
But since cherries are priced at $1.99/lb. at Publix (or just $2.99/lb. at Target), this cobbler will cost you between $3-$4 for the entire pan. (Which served eight happy helpings tonight when a few friends came over to test out the recipe with us!) For less than $.50 per serving, there's no reason not to try out this recipe this week. (I promise, your family will be so glad you did!)
