The Cherry Cobbler Recipe ~

This was sooo good last night, served piping hot with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I must confess, when I found I was out of all-purpose flour, I had to use a white whole-wheat flour instead; it got rave reviews all the same, and was possibly a tad healthier to boot! This now has me seriously tempted to buy that whole grain baking book I've had my eye on ...

Slow Cooker Cherry CobblerCobbler1

  • 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Coat the inside of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Pour in the cherry pie filling. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the melted butter, milk and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Spread evenly over the cherry pie filling. Cover, and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean.

So now the weekend is here at last and my to-do list is as long as my arm. ;) Saturday morning is so full of promise, isn't it? Crackerjack was feeling better yesterday (100% I'd say) and then this morning he woke with a fever and headache. A dose of Children's Motrin seems to have done the trick, but he'll have a quiet restful day just the same. We're hoping we all stay healthy so we can have a visit with Bill's folks tomorrow.

Stay well and warm, my friends!
