Made this the first time with fresh picked tart cherries, made my own pie filling with them. Received rave reviews and many people said it was the best cobbler they had ever had , not from the fruit, but the cobbler portion itself. Have since made it with peaches - also good and trying it with strawberries tonight. Yum. This is now the standard go to cobbler recipe in our hh. Read More

I appear to be the lone party pooper here but my family didn't care for this recipe. I prepared it exactly as instructed with no changes or tweaks. We found there to be an excessive amount of butter and we thought the cobbler batter was bland and too thin (meaning both too runny before baking and making too thin of a baked layer vs the fruit). My husband said "well at least the cherries are good...." Those were from a can - ha! Two stars for quick and easy preparation though. Read More

Excellent! I used Krusteaz gluten free flor which worked just fine. Also used 29 oz can of pie filling because I love cherries. That also worked just fine. Tastes fabulous and much simpler than fiddling with pie crust. Read More

I thought there was something wrong with the recipe. It just seemed odd to put batter on top of melted butter and then the cherries on top of that. But I had limited ingredients so I made it anyway. It turned out great! I will make it again even if I have the ingredients for something more complicated. It is probably important to use very good cherries. I made my own cherry pie filling with fresmont morgen cherries Read More

I put Ts of butter in the dish & put it in the oven to melt; added 1/4t almond extract to the filling. The crust is crispy & chewy. Good trick! 'Kinda plain looking, but you're making it to eat, not just look at! Keeper! Read More

I didn't understand why the butter would be melted in the microwave instead of in the preheating oven so I ignored that. This is a good recipe but more "cake-y" than "biscuit-y" as I would expect a cobbler to be. Read More
