Cherry Cobbler II

Jan Lester

This was handed down by my Grandmother. You can use any kind of fruit filling. If using cherry, pie filling can be substituted with 2 cups fresh cherries.

Wow, good old fashioned comfort dessert at its finest! And who would have ever thought something so down home good could be so easy and quick to throw together? Knowing I'm repeating many tips already suggested, this is what I found worked well: Add 1/4 tsp vanilla and a little cinnamon to the batter, bake in an 8" square pan or equivalent sized baking dish,cut butter down to 6 tablespoons, and sprinkle with sugar during the last 15 minutes of baking. Have fun with your favorite flavors of pie filling - all work well. Mmmmmmmmm, grandmas always were the best bakers, yours included, Jan!

Very good and simple, but I'm giving it 4 stars because as written it would have been under a puddle of butter. 1/4 c. was plenty, and I added cinnamon to the batter. I have tried it with blueberry pie filling and cherry and they were both very good. Cut the sugar back to 3/4 c. and you will never miss it. I also baked in a round casserole dish instead of the 13x9" pan which would have been *very* thin.

HOLY MELTED BUTTER BATMAN! I give this recipe five stars, but only if the following amendments are made. First, use a 4 or 6 quart round baking dish, not a 9x13 pan. Next, cut the amount of butter down to 1/4 of a cup or less. Using 1/4 of a cup of butter you will still get pools of melted butter on the top of the cobbler when you are done. No worries though! Simply spoon the butter onto the biscuits that have formed around the edges of the pan. Make these changes and I think you will like this recipe.
