How to Make a Dark Cherry Cobbler

Making a fruit cobbler is really not as hard as it sounds; in fact, a cobbler is probably the easiest type of pie/pastry you could ever endeavor to make. It’s perfect for a beginning baker, and kids might like to get involved, as well.Need a simple dessert recipe?

The crust comes first. You mix up the ingredients for the crust, per the recipe below. Then save back about 1/4 of the dough to use as topping. Press the rest of the crust into a baking dish. Personally, I love ceramic bakeware, and just a hint… Wayfair has an excellent selection of bakeware. You can also use an oven-friendly glass baking dish or a pie plate. The choice is totally up to you. But press that crust all along the bottom of your dish and up the sides just a bit, enough to hold the cobbler filling.

Next, you’ll mix up the filling, per the recipe below. You can use fresh cherries or frozen; I used frozen organic dark sweet cherries since fresh are a bit out of season in our neck of the woods right now.

Once you’ve poured your filling into the crust, just crumble the rest of the crust that you saved back on top of your cobbler and bake! It’s as simple as that.Need a simple dessert recipe?
