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.

I used regular mix this time, but the light blend would be excellent too.  The milk was 1%, and the Greek yogurt was a perfect and healthier substitute  for sour cream.  It shows how easy it is to lighten up the recipe some.

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!
