    A very quick, tasty and easy dessert that used things I had in my pantry.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
