Mom’s Cherry Cobbler
Today it was time to go back in time to when my mother used to make this basic, light cobbler for our family. It is so easy to stir up, takes little time to bake, and makes a wonderful, colorful dessert. There is barely any sugar in the mix, but it is just enough to add a slight sweetness to the Bisquick mix. Compared to some of the heavier, richer toppings, this is just right.
I served it with whip cream, just minutes out of the over. Ice cream would be delightful too.
There is something special about trying out Mom’s old recipes. Not only for the memories, but for the taste. I suppose it makes me feel closer to her too. We always loved it when she was cooking or baking!
Serves: 4 to 6
- 1 can cherries
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup Bisquick
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ cup greek yogurt or sour cream
- Preheat over to 425 degrees.
- Spray a pie pan or square pan with cooking spray.
- Blend the cornstarch into the cherries and heat until it starts to clear and thicken.
- While it is heating, mix the Bisquick and sugar.
- Stir in the milk and yogurt until a fairly wet dough forms.
- Pour the cherries into the pan, then spoon clumps of dough on top.
- Cook for about 20 minutes, until set and lightly brown.
