Red Hots and canned cherries flavor this memorable dessert from my childhood. I hadn’t had it in years, so when I found my mother’s recipe, I had to make it to see if it’s as good as I remembered. It is!—Betty Zorn, Eagle, Idaho
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.
"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.
There’s no pitting cherries and peeling peaches when you’re throwing together this quick cobbler. It uses convenient canned fruit and purchased pie filling. Sandra Pierce of North Bonneville, Washington shared the recipe.
Give cherries a golden, crunchy cobbler crust with this versatile mix. "For a quick gift, put a batch of it-along with a can of pie filling and serving directions-in a decorated bag," suggests Joyce Huber of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.
"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!"
