Cherry Cobbler~Farmgirl Style!

This is a very simple cobbler using ingredients from your pantry that we all have (stock up on cherry pie filling!). Similar recipes call for a cake mix, but no need for this one...just good old fashion ingredients! The recipe calls for a 8"x8" glass baking dish but I LOVE using my 4 quart dutch oven and it worked perfectly!

Easy Cherry Cobbler

1/2 cup margarine or butter (I used butter)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
21-oz. can cherry pie filling

Place butter in an 8"x8" glass baking pan; set in a 325 degree oven to melt. ( I melted mine on the stove in the dutch oven on low). Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk; mix well with a wire whisk. Pour over melted butter; do not stir. Spoon pie filling on top of batter; again, do not mix. Bake at 325 degrees for about an hour, until golden. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.

This look so yummy! I just wanted to confirm that it is 1 cup of butter....the recipe says 1/ so I wanted to check to be sure it wasn't supposed to be 1/2 cup butter! I am looking forward to making this.....thank you! I am always looking for new recipes :-)Blessings,

This is such a fabulous recipe. I scored big points with my in-laws today with this. I had actually made it for my grandson, but when the in-laws showed up unexpectedly, I served it them. It's the first time in 38 years that I actually got a compliment from them! Thanks so much for generously sharing your recipes! Now, off to the store to stock up on more cherry pie filling!
