Magic Cherry Cobbler

August 25, 2018Teresa

Oh, guys, do I have a doozy of a recipe for you today! Magic Cherry Cobbler. Yes, this recipe is magical. It is one of the most spectacular Cherry Cobbler recipes you’ll ever eat. No kidding. This fantastic dessert layers fresh cherries on the bottom. Then it has a topping layer. After that you sprinkle sugar and boiling water on top. All the ingredients kind of mix together as they bake. The crust is so amazing. Except for the fact that you have to pit cherries, it’s also incredibly easy to toss together.

If you’ve been following my blog recently, you know I’ve posted quite a few cherry desserts. I absolutely love them. This cobbler is no different. Fresh cherries are in season for only a couple of months during the summer. I try to make the most of it by using cherries frequently in desserts. Of course, I also enjoy eating cherries fresh, just out of the bag. Ah, yes. cherries are really something special.

I served this last Friday night for our care group potluck. To say it was a hit with everyone is an understatement. It was phenomenal. Everyone in our care group  likes Blue Bell (ice cream) on desserts….cakes, pies, even cookies or brownies! So we served it ala mode. Everyone drooled over it. You have to experience this luscious dessert to believe it.

I first tried this recipe with my Magic Peach Cobbler. Out of all the Peach Cobbler recipes I made in the summer of 2014, that was our favorite one. I wondered what the recipe would be like using cherries and substituting almond extract for the cinnamon. It was awesome.

If you’re looking for a “to die for” heavenly dessert, you MUST make this Magic Cherry Cobbler now. Fresh cherries will be out of season in a few weeks. After that, you’re best bet is to substitute canned cherries. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. This dessert is highly addictive! 🙂
