This Fresh Cherry Cobbler recipe makes enough to serve a group and is a great make-ahead dessert option. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Using Frozen Cherries:
This recipe works well with frozen cherries when fresh cherries are not available plus you have the added benefit of not having to pit them. Safeway carries a 12 ounce bag of pitted frozen dark cherries with no added sugar and you will need 3 bags for this recipe. Fully thaw the bags overnight in the refrigerator and drain the cherries well before proceeding with the recipe as written.
Cover the fully assembled dish with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Allow to rest on your kitchen counter for about 30 minutes before baking to take the chill off. If the cobbler is cold when going in the oven you may need a longer baking time.
