Every year, I find myself making crumbles, cobblers, and crisps on repeat from May until September. Celebrate summer’s bounty with this classic American dessert – Cherry Cobbler. Pick up a basket of plump cherries the next time you’re at the market and create this sweet, fruit-filled dessert. The cherries are cooked until they’re a jammy consistency and topped with a not-too-sweet, pie like crust. You can make individual servings, or combine everything in a large baking dish. However, I like the individual servings, because they’re fabulous for a party.
Cherry cobbler is one of those desserts that takes me back to my childhood in Nantucket. It’s always a favorite go-to dessert for my family, and I have so many memories of eating it on the back porch of my grandparent’s house. I have tweaked my recipe over the years, and I finally have what I consider to be the perfect cherry cobbler. Making it in these small individual dishes is certainly optional, but I just love how cute they look this way. Of course, vanilla bean ice cream is also optional but highly recommended.
