Tart Cherry Cobbler

Rated as 4.79 out of 5 Stars

"This requires a flaky pie dough instead of a drop biscuit style topping. If you want to use a refrigerator pie crust instead of making your own that works just fine and the end result is well worth it!"

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, gently stir the cherries, brown sugar, and white sugar until all the sugar has dissolved. Mix in the tapioca, almond extract, cinnamon, and salt. Let stand 15 minutes. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and dot with butter.
  3. Roll our pie pastry into a rectangle slightly larger than the baking dish, and place over the cherries. Tuck in corners, and make several slits in the dough. Brush with milk.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until crust is lightly browned and filling is bubbly. Cool 1 hour before serving.

I made this tonight and it was great. I usually follow the recipes exactly but in this case I couldn't find the cherries in water so I opted for the canned cherries for pies. 3 cans was plenty. ...

This cobbler is currently baking, so I can't speak to the taste; however, I wanted to mention that I couldn't find cherries in water or cans of the right ounces. Instead, I bought the "More Fru...
