The tart cherries are sweetened by the sugar and make a perfect balance of sweet and sour. Golden brown, crisp, tender and aromatic, cherry cobbler is one of the fantastic dessert recipes for the holidays and can also be enjoyed anytime of the year since it’s so simple to make.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup + 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 cup + ¾ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
2 cups pitted sour cherries
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put the butter in a small microwave proof dish and microwave for a few seconds at a time until the butter is melted. Pour the butter into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, blend together 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and the baking powder. Add the milk and stir. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Do not stir.
3. Place the cherries in a medium bowl. Toss with 3/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of flour. Spoon the cherry mixture over the batter. Do not stir.
4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of cobbler comes out clean.
