A warm and sweet cherry cobbler goes better with nothing other than a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Cherries are currently in season and I can think of nothing better than to share with you this Easy Cherry Cobbler Recipe that is a great summer recipe!
It is no mystery that I have a thing for a bowl of warm fruit that is topped with ice cream. You can see that in my recipe for Homemade Peach Cobbler and Apple Crisp. I don’t know what it is that sends me over the moon and beyond with a warm and bubbling fruit crisp or cobbler. But there is something special about cherries. I-FREAKING-LOVE THEM!
Summer is my favorite time of year, not because of the heat and activities, but because of the fruit that is in season and at its best like peaches and cherries. Every year I buy bags on bags of dark sweet cherries. They are so delicious to me. I also like Cherry Pie and, now, Cherry Cobbler.
Frozen vs. Fresh Cherries
When making this Easy Cherry Cobbler Recipe, you absolutely can make them with fresh cherries. That is if you feel like removing the pits out of the cherries you are going to need. Me? No thank you. I want to keep it as simple and stressless as possible. There is something about using a handheld cherry pitter that just makes me want to roll my eyes at the amount of work that goes into that. So, making a cherry cobbler with frozen cherries is a win for me. However, it is absolutely up to you.
Cherry Cobbler vs. Cherry Pie
So, this is a debate that I would actually carve out of my time to witness. I think the answer to the question, “Is cobbler better than pie?”, is a matter of preference. I don’t see much of a difference if I’m telling the trust. They both have a crust and similar fillings. However, pie has a crust on the top and the bottom and cobbler are a bit more forgiving in terms of appearance because it can be made in a heavy-duty cast-iron skillet and the crust is only on the top. So, I’ll leave it to you to decide if Cherry Pie is better than Cherry Cobbler.
Cherries are very rustic and comforting fruit when put in a cobbler. It is perfect for use in desserts in the summer or fall. The crust is a Sweet Cream Biscuit crust that is brushed with butter and sprinkled with extra sugar. I mean, if you can’t make this you need to stick to making gourmet water. A five-year-old can make it! You guys know I don’t like to make anything too difficult anyway. I’m no food genius. Well….maybe just a little “Einstein-ish” when it comes to the kitchen.
Make it today! You will thank yourself for it!
