Tart Cherry Cobbler

Recipe by  

"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!"

Directions

  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.

This was very good. I could've drained off a little juice as it was very juicy but the flavor was great! I had 3 29 oz. cans of tart cherries so I added a little bit more sugar and a tablespoon more tapioca. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The almond flavoring I almost left out but I was glad I didn't because it is a subtle but very nice flavor with the cherries.

I had a pound of fresh sour cherries so I decided to use thoes. Because I only had a pound I halved the rest of the recipe. I thought it was really good but the tapioca was soft but it did leave a texture that I didn't particularly care for. My favorite is to use about a tablespoon of liquid pectin for a thickener. I also used one crust and made cut outs so you could see the berries. The brown sugar really gave it a subtle richness. I'll be making again with frozen cherries most likely.

Very good. I could only find one brand of cherries in water and it was 2.60 a can so using 5 cans, this recipe can get pricey.

This is a good cobbler and not too sweet. I added a little less than 1 TBSP cornstarch because one reviewer commented how juicy it was and I didn't want it too come out too soupy. For us it was perfect. I also rolled out the 2 pie crusts separately and sprinkled a little cinnamon-sugar in between. Great!

This was delicious! i used 1/2 can cherries and 1/2 fresh cherries, and the results were amazing! I can not keep my husband away from it! LOL i do prefer the traditional style cobbler topping, but this i will make again. Yummy.

Sooo delicious and very easy to make! I cut the pie crust into strips/lattice and used a cookie cutter to decorate...

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 Fruit" brand and rinsed them in a strainer. Afterwards, I only added one of the sugars. The consistency and flavor seemed accurate upon a pre-baked taste test.
