Cherry Cobbler with Almond Glaze
Cherry Cobbler with Almond Glaze is one fantastic dessert. This amazing dessert got rave reviews when I sent it out to John’s office a couple of weeks ago. There was not a smidgeon left!
This is another vintage recipe I got from a friend. I added the almond glaze on top, but the rest of the recipe is hers. It’s layered kind of like a casserole and you don’t stir the ingredients together.
First, there’s a melted butter layer. Then a flour batter is spooned over top but not stirred into the melted butter. A cherry layer is spooned over top of the batter layer, but it also is NOT mixed in. It all mixes together while it bakes. After baking, I added a delicious Almond Glaze to tie everything together.
I received a 20-pound box of fresh cherries from the Northwest Cherry Growers in Washington state. They wanted me to blog about my experiences with their cherries again this year. All I can say is their cherries are the biggest, plumpest most delicious cherries I’ve ever tasted. They are so much larger than what you normally get in the grocery store.
I made ten desserts with their cherries this year. I actually baked the 10 desserts in six days. This was one of the last desserts I made that final day. It turned out wonderfully well. Like I said earlier, everyone who sampled it at John’s office really raved over it. That’s always a good sign. 🙂
If you want to make a delicious Cherry Cobbler this season, may I recommend Cherry Cobbler with Almond Glaze. It’s the perfect treat for your family and friends while you can still get fresh cherries.

Cherry Cobbler with Almond Glaze is so mouthwatering.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cobbler.
Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter in a 9×13″ glass baking dish in oven while you make the batter and the cherry filling.
Place UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add one cup of the sugar, baking powder and salt.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Add half-and-half or milk.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Pour flour batter evenly over top of melted butter in a 9×13″ glass baking dish. DO NOT STIR ingredients together.
Meanwhile, pit and halve cherries. Place in a saucepan with remaining sugar and lemon juice.
Stir ingredients to combine and bring to a boil.
The sugar will melt down. Remove from heat and add almond extract. Stir to combine.
Gently spoon cherries as evenly as possible over the batter in the baking dish.
Bake at 375 about 40 to 45 minutes, or until cherries are cooked and top is brown. Allow cobbler to cool completely before adding glaze.
I used these ingredients for the Almond Glaze.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Drizzle Almond Glaze over top of cooled Cherry Cobbler.
Allow icing to set and harden about 15 minutes before serving.
Cherry Cobbler with Almond Glaze is really terrific with ice cream.
