Sweet Cherry Cobbler

Being a Southerner cobbler has been part of our dessert repertoire since I can remember. My Mom was the queen of cobblers so I learned from the best. You can make cobbler with just about any fruit but cherry happens to be my favorite. It’s also happens to be the most expensive fruit. Thank goodness for Sam’s Club. They’ve got the goods and at a great price to boot so as long as cherries are in season I’m good to go!

I can’t even remember how long I’ve had my Sam’s Club Membership, suffice it to say at least 10 years. I love that they have a 200% satisfaction guarantee on fresh meats, crisp produce, savory seafood and gourmet to go bakery items. Not to mention I’m always able to find what I need and this trip was no exception, I picked up everything I needed for this mouthwatering cherry cobbler. The sweet Northwest cherries came packaged in 3 pound containers which meant we had leftovers for snacking and making into delicious cherry limeade drinks.

Here’s a quick video that highlights the cherry picking process and the quality behind each handpicked cherry sold at Sam’s Club:

    Here I am, an Italian girl who fell in love with the cherry cobbler I had at the school cafeteria in first grade. That began my love for both cobbler AND cherries, which we don’t have much of locally here in New England. Every Saturday, I’d go to Boston’s famous Haymarket with my dad, and sometimes I’d see the vendors selling cherries, but, believe me, they were nasty even to the eyes of a small child!

    So…chances are good that I’d make your luscious cobbler, but I do love a good Italian cheese cake made with ricotta!

  30. 30

    Girl your cobbler looks fantastic! Your mom will be so proud 😀 xoxo

    My favorite way to have cherries is just to wash and eat them; but I may also make a savory compote to serve over a pork tenderloin. I also love cherry pie, cherry cobbler, cherry ice cream, cherry cookies….mmm.

    I would make individual deep fried pies.
