i also added almond extract and it tasted a lot better the second time around. after reading the other reviews i spread the batter and it cooked through. so all in all yes i will make it again.

Cherries very tart; topping was flavorless and insufficient .

Everyone loved this recipe! I read the other review given and what I did was add 1 tsp. of almond extract and 1 tsp. of lemon juice. When I make it again, I will make sure I spread the cobbler batter out more. I put spoonfuls into the cherry mixture, but it took longer for it to bake because the batter wasn't cooking through. I will definitely make this again!

I had a recipe I somehow lost that was very similar to this one. I recall that 1 teaspoon of almond extract was added to the stewed cherries. I used that instead of the lemon juice and really liked the results. However, another time I used the lemon juice and liked that too. Whichever I use, I love this recipe!
