This Homemade Cherry Cobbler made with fresh cherries and an easy flaky buttery biscuit topping hits the spot every time.  Enjoy with fresh whipped cream or with real vanilla ice cream.



Cherry Filling

  • 6 cups pitted sour cherries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter cut in small cubes
  • ½ cup buttermilk warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9×9 inch casserole with nonstick baking spray.
  2. In a large pot combine the cherries, sugar, cornstarch, water and cinnamon.  Bring it to a low boil and simmer for 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Stir several times.
  3. Meanwhile whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon. Using a pastry cutter cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the buttermilk just until the mixture is moistened.
  4. Pour the warm cherry mixture into the prepared dish.  Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the hot liquid. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the cherry mixture is bubbly.


  • This delicious cobbler is best made with sour cherries.
  • Are you always in a hurry?  No problem sub two (21 ounce cans) cherry pie filling and skip to making the flaky biscuit topping.
  • This dessert is delicious with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
  • Serve it warm or at room temperature.  I have even enjoyed it cold.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.  The buttery biscuit topping will inevitably absorb some of the cherry juice so it will not be as delectable as the day that you baked it but it will still be delicious.
  • In my opinion cobbler does not freeze well.  It is best enjoyed shortly after it is baked.  The biscuit like topping soaks up too much of the juice after being frozen and reheated.
