Cherry Cobbler Recipe

This cherry cobbler recipe is an excellent way to use up fresh cherries. Unlike most recipes, this one uses fresh sour cherries instead of the canned. It does require a little work to pit the cherries but nothing major and the end result is fantastic. This recipe is fairly easy with few ingredients. The cherries are tossed with sugar to make them sweat. This is a perfect baking dish for summer. Enjoy.

I have made this a number of times--I did adjust the amount of butter (used a little less) as well as reduced the amount of sugar (used about 1/4 cup less overall) as well I tried with a gluten free mix. It is very tasty and easy. With the GF mix, it comes out like a gummy pudding, but still tasty. Thank you for sharing this! I love it and look forward to eating the one coming out of the oven in 10 minutes.

Megan- I personally think the blueberry bars are better but either one would be delicious!
