Old-Fashioned Cherry Cobbler

August 30, 2018Teresa

Old-Fashioned Cherry Cobbler is absolutely heavenly. Truly, this is one of those desserts that will have you drooling from the first smell out of the oven! The ironic thing is when you put the recipe into the oven it looks awful. 🙁 It’s one of those recipes where you pour boiling syrup over top of everything else. Then as the dessert bakes it leaves a luscious cherry syrup on the bottom and a nice crust layer on top. This cobbler is marvelous.

We had a friend recently undergo full knee replacement. As it happens, he has two adult children and their families staying with them while they’re renovating or looking to purchase houses. When I asked his wife about bringing over a meal, she told me Larry really loved cherries. That was his favorite dessert. So I told her I would come up with a dessert that had cherries. I wasn’t planning on making any more recipes this summer with cherries, but I couldn’t resist making something they would enjoy. I also threw in some Fresh Cherry Muffins. They loved all of it.

Of course, they had to have real food too. I made them a tasty Chicken Noodle Casserole, Broccoli and Pearl Onion Casserole, my favorite Creamy Grape Salad, Greek Tomato Salad and a loaf of Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread. She was concerned that I had so many people to feed. I told her I was used to making meals for lots of people. She relented and allowed me to bring them a meal. Not only was there enough, there was enough for two full meals out of all of it. 🙂

When Jamie brought the dishes back last week, she exclaimed about how much they loved this cherry cobbler recipe. Their family was so grateful to not have to cook a meal for a couple days after Larry’s surgery, either. We have known this family for over 20 years. They typically always serve others, but I wanted to find a way to bless them too. Taking meals to others is certainly a blessing especially after surgeries, sickness, new babies are born or for funerals. We were glad to participate.

I adapted this recipe from my fantastic Tennessee Peach Cobbler recipe. Since they originate from Memphis it might have seemed a little familiar to them. 🙂 Anyway, if you’re looking for a spectacular way to enjoy fresh cherries, Old-Fashioned Cherry Cobbler is the recipe for you. It will surely cure any sweet tooth craving you have. However, you may find yourself wanting more than one piece!

    Wow, this made me stop in my tracks while looking through Pinterest and definitely had my mouth watering. Too bad I found this recipe after cherry season.
    I just love cherries 🍒 and will keep this for next years baking when they are back in season again.

      Hi Dunia. We still are getting cherries in our stores here in Texas. But you can use canned cherries if you desire.
