"THIS cobbler was always topped with fresh whipped cream that we skimmed from a milk pan kept cool in my uncle's pumphouse. We skimmed off that cream with a flat spoon and carried it to the kitchen to be whipped. Afterward, we could hardly wait for dessert to be served!"
"This is a very good dessert that's easy to make and calls for only a few ingredients," says June Cunningham of Carsonville, Michigan. Refrigerated biscuits form the golden toping over a combination of ruby-red cherry pie filling and frozen blackberries.
Since I usually have all the ingredients on hand, this cobbler is as easy as pie to assemble. Often, I'll change the canned filling to another fruit flavor. Try raspberry, peach, apricot or my personal favorite, strawberry.—Heidi Wilcox, Lapeer, Michigan
“Once a week, my husband and I enjoy a candlelight dinner after our two children are fed and in bed,” shares Kari Damon from Rushford, New York. “This is a perfectly sized dessert for those special 'date nights.'”
TIP: This cobbler also tastes wonderful with apple or blueberry pie filling instead of cherry.
An extra-rich, chocolate chip cookie dough and crescent roll topping provide a tasty twist on a classic cherry cobbler. Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
