A Cheery Cherry Cobbler

My Great Grandmother Presley use to make cobbler… She loved making hers with strawberries and sometimes peaches. I made this one with a cherry filling, it takes time off of the preparartion. I can always appreciate a little time saver. Make this yummy cobbler for dinner or the next time you have guests coming over. they are sure to love it. As my Great Grandmother always said  “If you have guests, let the dirty dishes wait, they will still be there tomorrow, but your guest won’t.”
Ingredients for Cherry Cobbler:
  • 1 1/4 – cup sugar
  • 1/2 – teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 – cups flour
  • 1 – teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 – teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 – sticks butter
  • 2 – eggs
  • 3 1/2 – tablespoons 1/2 & 1/2
  • 1/2 – teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 – teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 – cup sour cream
  • 5 – cups cherry filling
Topping for Cherry Cobbler:
  • 3 – tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 – teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 – cup sliced almonds
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
  2. In  a large bowl mix all dry ingredients ( sugar, gound cinnamon, flour, baking soda, and baking powder )together.
  3. Add in cold butter, and with two butter knives start to cut in butter into the flour mixture in a criss cross motion.  This will take about 10 minutes. Flour mixture will eventually become crumbly with the butter pieces the size of peas.  Set to the side.

  8. Add remaining cobbler dough to the top in drops, leaving some cherry filling exposed.
