Hi Everyday Foodies! Here is another recipe that is a no brainer. This is our second attempt at making a cherry cobbler. The first attempt was good but the top crumble and the right amount of tang to it. It was not what we wanted and therefore we didn’t post it. This one turned out amazing! The crust on top had a nice crunch to it and the hot cherry filling created a tangy burst of flavor in our mouths. Topped with Ben and Jerry’s made it a perfect summer dessert. You must try this!
1 cup of brown sugar
¾ cup of all-purpose flour
¾ cup of oatmeal (you can use either instant or regular)
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of salt
½ cup of cold butter
Combine cherries, lemon juice and sugar and then place into an oven safe dish (my favorite is a cast iron skillet). Then sprinkle the lemon zest over the filling mixture and place into a heated oven at 375 while making your crumble topping.
To make your crumble topping
Combine sugar, flour, oatmeal, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Then take your butter and cut it up into small cubes and add to the mixture. Take a pastry cutter and combine these ingredients until you have gotten to the sandy/crumbly stage.
Pull your filling out of the oven (using a glove of course 😀 ) and then place your crumble directly on top of the filling mixture and stick the whole thing back in the oven for about 35 minutes. Your family will love you and may growl at each other to keep it for themselves. Make sure to have some vanilla ice cream on hand if you like that kind of thing, if not, the cobbler is great on its own.
