Mini Cherry Cobblers

Posted by Haley Stoner on

This was new and fun for me. I have never made a cobber before but this was delish. I searched Pinterest to find a recipe but didn't really find anything to fit with the supplies I had on hand, and this time of year, I cannot find Cherries anywhere, unless its a filling, so that is all I had on hand. Seriously , if you don't have a pastry blender, they're about $8 on Amazon, just grab one! Your arm will thank you later. 

For the Cherry Filling
  • 1 Can of Cherry pie filling
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp of Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 a tbsp of ground cinnamon

    For the Topping
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • stick butter- cut in small pieces and add little by little until the mixture becomes a crumble consistency - i think i used less than half a stick. 
    • 1/3 cup boiling water
    Additional Topping, optional
    • 1 tsp sugar
    Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Use non-stick spray to lightly coat your dish- I used stick butter and just rubbed it around my mini dishes. 
    For the Cherry Filling
    1. Add canned filling to a mixing bowl

    2. Sprinkle brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon over cherries, gently stir. 

    3. Pour cherries mixture into prepared baking dish. Set aside
    For the Topping
    1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt together.

    2. Using a pastry blender, or a fork, mix butter into flour mixture until crumbly.

    3. Pour boiling water into flour mixture and stir until combined

    4. Spoon mixture over cherries and spread gently making sure to cover the cherries completely.

    5. Sprinkle additional sugar on top of batter.

    6. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until topping is cooked thoroughly and has started to brown. 

    7. Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream.

    This is definitely going to be reconstructed into a full size baking dish recipe and served at our Christmas Dinner.  Oh, and make sure that when you get vanilla ice cream, you get VANILLA BEAN! Not vanilla, or french vanilla, it has to be Vanilla bean! Im convinced it was made just to pair with pies and cobblers.
