For this cobbler, I used Morello cherries, which have a great cherry flavor and are a beautiful dark red color. My topping was a slightly sweet cornmeal biscuit dough. It almost has a cornbread-like feel to it, with a slightly coarse texture from the inclusion of stone ground cornmeal.

Recipe Ingredients for Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler


Filling:
4 cups cherry, pitted (frozen, jarred or fresh)
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine all filling ingredients and stir well. Transfer to a 9-or 10-inch round pie/baking dish (preferably a deep dish).

  3. In a large mixing bowl, make the topping. Stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Pour in butter and buttermilk and stir to combine, mixing only until no streaks of dry ingredients remain. Drop dollops of topping onto cherry mixture forming a roughly even layer with a ?cobbled-together? look. Sprinkle with coarse sugar for a touch o extra sweetness, if desired.

  4. Bake for 40 minutes, until cherry filling is thick and bubbly and the biscuit topping is golden brown.

  5. Cool for at least 20 minutes before serving, to allow juices to thicken up.

  6. Serve warm
