cherry cobbler
 
(sugar free) 
 
this recipe makes a great dessert to serve on a cold and rainy summer 
evening. i prefer to use fresh dark, red cherries. the cherries must be 
pitted, so have the children pit the cherries while you are preparing the 
topping. the kids will get a kick out of helping, and they will be 
thrilled when gulping down the results of their hard work. this treat 
looks outstanding on a fourth of july picnic table. 
 
topping: 
 
1 cup  plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 tsp  cinnamon
3 Tbsp  sugar or sugar substitute
2 tsp  baking powder
1/4 cup  (1/2 stick) cold butter sliced into little pieces
1/3 cup  plus 1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup  sliced almonds (optional)
 
preheat oven to 375 degrees f. use a pastry blender, wire beater or 2 
knives to mix all the dry ingredients together. add the cold butter. 
gradually add the milk and mix the ingredients with a fork until it begins 
to hold together gather the dough together and place on a lightly floured 
surface. knead the dough about 10 times or until smooth. shape the dough 
to fit a casserole dish, but not more than about 1/2-inch thick. 
 
 
filling: 
 
4 cup  fresh pitted dark, red cherries, or frozen or canned, dark, red
  cherries,
  drained of juice
3/4 cup  sugar or sugar substitute
1 tsp  cinnamon
1 tsp  almond extract
1 Tbsp  fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup  (1/2 stick) cold butter, sliced
 
preheat oven to 375 degrees f. grease a 3-quart casserole dish. place the 
cherries into the prepared dish. combine the sugar, cinnamon, almond 
extract and lemon juice, and with a fork or spoon, gently mix into the 
cherries. 
 
dot the cherries with the sliced butter. set the cherries aside. place the 
topping (dough) over the filling and press down along the edges of the 
dish as if tucking the fruit into the dish. trim away any excess dough. 
sprinkle sliced almonds on top of the dough. bake 40-50 minutes or until 
the juices begin to bubble and the fruit is tender when pierced through 
the dough with a knife or fork. (if the topping begins to brown before 
juices begin to bubble, place a sheet of foil over the topping to prevent 
burning and continue baking.) 
 
to reheat, cover the dish with foil and heat at the original baking 
temperature for 10 minutes or dish out the desired amount onto a plate and 
microwave.
