Skillet Cherry Cobbler
“Once a week, my husband and I enjoy a candlelight dinner after our two children are fed and in bed,” shares Kari Damon from Rushford, New York. “This is a perfectly sized dessert for those special 'date nights.'” TIP: This cobbler also tastes wonderful with apple or blueberry pie filling instead of cherry.
