|The thing I love most about cobblers (and crisps & crumbles for that matter) is that its whats INSIDE that matters. The beautiful ooey gooey goodness of the filling just bubbles over and is perfectly imperfect. The way life is!|
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups pitted fresh tart cherries
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup milkPreheat oven to 400°. Blend 1 1/4 cups sugar, cornstarch, cherries, and almond extract in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Continue to boil and stir for 1 minute. Pour fruit mixture into an ungreased casserole dish, or individual ramekins. Place in oven while preparing dough. Measure flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add shortening and milk. Cut shortening in several times then stir until dough forms a ball. Drop dough in about 6 spoonfuls onto hot fruit. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
We like ours with vanilla ice cream!
Nothing beats a great cobbler than the perfect dish to serve it in, or the perfect place settings.
|I prefer the crisp easy mixability of white dishes, but sometimes, blue is an amazing back drop to red food, like these simple and classic pieces from pottery barn.|
|I am a fool for country and gingham! I love the combination with the cherries.|
|So bright and pretty!|
