Reviews for Easy Cherry Cobbler
"I used 2 cans of cherry pie filling. I did not use any reduced fat or reduced sugar products, used butter instead of margarine & 3/4 C Egg Nog instead of 1/2 C milk"
"I did not care for this. This is not my idea of a cobbler. Will definitely not make it again."
"I made this for a quick dessert for company. Everyone loved it and it was so easy. I used cherries that I had frozen and thicken like a pie filling. I used what would be equal at least to 2 cans of cherry pie filling. Would probably even use more another time and will surely make it again & with different kinds of fruits like peaches, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or apples."
"This recipe was super easy and delicious for being a "Light" dessert."
"I made this for our Family Reunion, it was hit! I made it with apples! We will make it again for sure!"
"very good and easy plus to betty1944 - just use your favorite basic cobbler recipe & use the blueberries w/just a little (maybe a tsp) tapioca mixed in for thickening & follow recipe. I like a lot of sauce with my cobbler so I don't thicken it too much."
"Don'tt know I haven't seen the recipe!!!"
"to Betty1234, you probably could make it like you were making a blueberry pie. that's my guess."
"Question anyoneWould I be able to put the topping on the filling before warming and if so, how long would I need to bake it then? THANKS!!!"
"Question anyone? Would I be able to put the topping on without warming the filling first, and if so, how long would I need to bake the cobbler then? THANKS"
"could this be done w/fresh blueberries? If so, what amount of blues, sugar, thickener?"
"Delicous! for an easy quick recipe. We topped it with a light vanilla ice cream, and definitely did not have any complaints! The almond flavoring definitely adds a little extra, I think I am going to try putting a little in the topping as well."
