Cinnamon Roll Cherry Cobbler Recipe
Red-hot candies and canned cherries flavor this memorable dessert from my childhood. I hadn’t had it in years, so when I found my mother’s recipe, I had to make it to see if it was as good as I remembered…and it was! —Betty Zorn, Eagle, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) pitted tart cherries
- 1/2 cup sugar

- 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

- 1. Drain cherries, reserving juice; set cherries aside. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water and reserved juice until smooth. Stir in red-hots. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until thick and bubbly and red-hots are melted. Stir in cherries; heat through. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish.

- 4. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cut into eight slices; place cut side down over cherry filling.
