  1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch and allspice. Fold in pie filling and rhubarb.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt; stir in the cream and extract just until a soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls over cherry mixture; sprinkle with almonds and remaining sugar.

"The cobbler topping was so soft and delicious, the whipping cream is a wonderful addition! For the fruit mixture I used 2 cups of homemade cherry pie filling, 4 cups of rhubarb with 1 tbsp of flour, it was tart and a perfect balance to the topping, which I halved and baked in my round casserole dish, 30 minutes was perfect."

"I had to halve this recipe and make it in an 8" square pan since I didn't have enough rhubarb. I love the dumplings, slight almond flavor nicely offsets the sweet/tart of the filling. Think I'll try it with other fruit combinations too."
