I bought a 4 lb box of them this week and decided to make a cobbler a couple of days ago and the cobbler is about gone! Yum! And it only took 4 cups of cherries so we have a lot left over.
* 6 T of butter
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 cup white sugar
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*1 teaspooon of vanilla
* dash of cinnamon
* 1 cup milk
* 4 cups of cherries pitted
Preheat oven to 275 degrees and place butter or margarine in 2 qt baking dish and set on oven rack to melt.
While that is melting, go ahead and wash and pit your 4 cups of cherries. For a quick way of pitting cherries, use a hard straw and poke the straw through, thus popping the seed out of the center. Super quick and easy! I used a kiddie straw we had here and so it was a nice stiff one and it minimized hand stainage *minimize not eliminate!
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and baking powder and a bit of cinnamon. Stir in milk and vanilla
Remove baking dish from oven as soon as butter or margarine is melted. Pour flour mixture into dish, but DO NOT STIR. Pour fruit evenly into pan, and DO NOT STIR. (Can you tell you are not supposed to stir?)
Now when I made it, I baked it at 275 for 60 minutes and 350 for 20 minutes. I also add more flour and sugar to thicken it up a bit more. Easy and oh so good!
