Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Cherry Goodness

I bought way too many cherries this week, in fact one bag was just starting to wilt a little. My husband wanted to throw them away and start on the new bag but I hate throwing out expensive produce. I knew that a summer cherry cobbler was in order.

I admit that I couldn't find the cherry pitter so my prep time was extensive and I almost lost a finger or two. I know I have one somewhere. So now that my fingers are dyed burgundy and all my cherries are pitted I can move on to creating something yummy.

The pan is almost gone already- my husband is one his 3rd helping
