Southern Cherry Cobbler

July 14, 2018Teresa

Southern Cherry Cobbler is a real delight. This delicious cobbler is filled with fresh cherries and almond flavoring. It’s topped with a wonderful homemade biscuit like topping and sprinkled with sugar before baking. It’s one of those killer desserts that you have to get out of your house before you eat every last crumb! For those who enjoy ice cream, like I do, it’s absolutely fantastic served ala mode. If you have an abundance of cherries on hand or just love cherry desserts, this is the recipe for you.

I’ve made several fruit cobblers with this basic recipe. I’ve made both peach and gluten free peach cobblers, a blueberry cobbler, even a Figgy Pudding. It never ceases to please. I changed this one up a little so that instead of traditional cinnamon, it’s spiced up with almond extract. The flavors are marvelous.

Back in late June I received a 20-pound box of cherries from Northwest Cherry Growers in Washington state. They asked me to either can or make recipes with the cherries. I chose to make ten different delectable treats with the cherries. Without exception, they all turned out wonderfully well. Quite frankly, I gorged on this amazing Southern Cherry Cobbler. I ate it plain and with ice cream. I ate small servings and large servings. It was one of those desserts I should have sent home with friends so I didn’t eat it all!

We get cherries here in Texas around June and July each year. I will tell you these cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers must be grown in a different soil or something. They were huge, juicy and delicious. I can’t remember ever seeing cherries quite as big as these. They were uniformly consistent in appearance, texture and taste. (I did not receive monetary compensation for this post, other than receiving the cherries free of charge.) The cherries were some of the best we’ve ever eaten.

I will say that the cherries cooked up exceptionally well for desserts. I made one cobbler, five bar-type cookies, two regular type cookies and 2 cakes. I think I’ve gained about 10 pounds enjoying all these delicious cherry desserts. 🙁

If you’re in the mood for a mouthwatering cobbler recipe, give this Southern Cherry Cobbler a try. And be sure to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s even better that way. 🙂

This cobbler is not skimpy with cherries. This recipe uses eight cups of cherry halves.

I loved Southern Cherry Cobbler served with ice cream.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the topping, plus boiling water.

Combine flour, both sugars, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl.

Stir well. Then cut in butter with a pastry blender.

Continue cutting in butter until coarse crumbs form.

Stir to combine and set aside. This is a very thick, biscuit-like mixture. It’s not crumbly like a streusel topping.

I used these ingredients for the cherry layer.

Pit and halve cherries. Place in a large mixing bowl. If you have a cherry pitter this will go fast.

If you’re doing this by hand, I found it easiest to cut the cherries in half like you would peaches. Twist the cherry halves in opposition directions. Remove the pit from the one half it’s in and add it to the bowl of cherry halves.

    Your Southern Cherry Cobbler looks divine, and if you made it gluten free, what flour would you use in it? I am also a Gluten Free person and have to watch ingredients.

      Hi, Sharon. I like using Cup4Cup gluten free flour for baked goods. It has a terrific blend. I have also heard from my niece (who has Celiac) that Better Batter is pretty good.

    Can I bake Cherry Cobbler Bars in a 13×9 inch pan?

    1. Teresa

      Hi, Gale. You can but because that will make it shallower, you may need to cut back on your time if it looks like it’s cooking too quickly.

    Do cherries ever come either frozen or in a can, already pitted? I have a hand issue so this would be difficult for me, but my family would love this.

      Angelina, have you considered a cherry pitter? That may be a great option. Otherwise, yes, you can purchase canned tart cherries, pitted. They usually sell “Oregon” brand on the aisle where they sell canned fruit. It’s usually on the top shelf. They sell canned cherries, blackberries, blueberries and other berries.
