Last week we were coming home from the post office, and right there where the peaches will be in another month were these gorgeous cherries. We have this great farm stand where they sell the county's best peaches every year. After peaches they have many varieties of apples. This is the first year for cherries, though.
The cherries were just a tad tart to eat out of hand, so I looked up the cobbler recipe that we used last year for berries:
http://theessentialherbal.blogspot.com/2007/08/gobble-up-some-cobbler.html and just slightly altered it. Instead of lemon juice (which I didn't have on hand), I squeezed an orange over the cherries and sugar. This recipe is like a giant cookie - all terrible ingredients. It would be improved with the use of raw sugar and a whole grain flour, but once or twice a year we make it just the way the recipe suggests.
It is so simple, just a few ingredients, and it looks so delicious before it goes in the oven.
40 minutes later... ummmmm umm! The edges are just a little crispy and the cherries are perfectly suited to a cobbler.
