Simple Cherry Cobbler

Berries, peaches or any fruit can be used for this simple cobbler recipe, but the cheery bright color of cherries makes it just right for gray winter days. —Eleanor Jacoby, Eureka, Kansas

    This is so simple and delicious. I used Almond vanilla soy milk instead of the 2% in the recipe. If you find the recipe isn't enough servings just double the ingredients. I can't wait to try different fruits. I'll be making this at least once a week. Thanks so much.

    I agree, not enough dough, It is perfect for 2 people, though. Don't think I will make it again

    i was not a fan of this recipe, but it could be that the only cherries I found at the store were sweet, so i want to try again if i can find tart cherries
