Nothing is quite as comforting or deliciously sweet as a warm, gooey cherry cobbler. Whether you’re celebrating the end of a great day or need to put together some comfort food on a chilly winter evening, this classic dessert recipe is sure to bring people together. With its tender crust and rich filling made from juicy fresh cherries, your homemade cherry cobbler tastes just like grandma used to make! Read on for all the tips and tricks you need for baking perfect cherry cobblers every time.
Which Cherries Are Best for Cobbler?
For baking, you can use either sweet (large, dark red cherries) or sour cherries. If using sour cherries, you may want to increase the sugar in the filling. If using canned cherries, use sour cherries rather than cherry pie filling, which will not work well in this recipe. You can also use frozen cherries and follow the directions below, but add 1 tablespoon more cornstarch to the saucepan.
Why You Should Make This Recipe:
- The sweet, tender cake perfectly complements the bright and delicious cherries. We enjoy it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
- Cobblers are a quick and easy way to enjoy delicious summer fruit without the effort of making a pie!
- Use fresh cherries in the summer or frozen or canned cherries at any time of year.
Preparation and Reheating Instructions:
To Prepare Ahead: This cherry cobbler is best served right away, but it can be stored in the fridge covered for up to 4-5 days.
To Reheat: Allow the cobbler to come to room temperature after removing it from the refrigerator. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. If the cobbler begins to brown too quickly, cover it with a sheet of tinfoil.
