Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

One day, I wanted to use up a leftover can of cherry pie filling that I had in the refrigerator. I added some diced rhubarb, then used a cobbler topping I liked. It turned into a favorite—fast! After many years of farming, my husband and I are now enjoying a new life in our new house, built on a lake.

    My husband loves rhubarb/cherry pie. I've never made one, but while looking for a pie recipe, I found this cobbler. So glad I did! I only had enough rhubarb for 2 cups, but I did have strawberries and used them to make up the extra cup. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. After my husbands first bite he said "This is a keeper"!! It is absolutely delicious and simple!

    I've trying to find a recipe for Cherry Rhubard Cobbler, because my grandma made all the time when I was little & didn't have her recipe when she past away for the amount of the ingredients. This recipe is like hers is great. For alng time all I could find was with strawberries, but I prefer cherries. Thank you for this recipe.
