Foodie Friday - World's easiest Cherry Cobbler

FOODIE FRIDAY Click for details
I don't do much microwave cooking, except for one dessert that we love...Cherry Cobbler.  It's good anytime, but this recipe comes in particularly handy when unexpected guests drop in for a visit.  In about 20 minutes you can have warm cobbler on the dessert table!  The ingredients are things you probably have on hand.  We like this best served with vanilla ice cream, but whipped cream works well too!

World's Easiest Cherry Cobbler
6 T. butter
1 C. all purpose flour
2/3 C. coarsely chopped nuts
1/3 C. packed dark brown sugar
3/4 t. ground cinnamon
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
2 t. cornstarch
1/2 t. fresh lemon juice

Melt butter in large pyrex cup in microwave. Mix in flour, nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Set aside.  In a one quart casserole, combine cherry filling, cornstarch and lemon juice. Mix until smooth, then microwave for one minute on high.  Sprinkle topping over filling mixture and microwave on medium-high for 6-8 minutes. Cool slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream.

My advice:  grab a serving for yourself as quickly as possible, because at the end of the evening this is all you'll have left.

  2. My husband picked up about 10 cans of fruit pie filling after Christmas. This sounds like a great way to make a quick and yummy dessert. Joni
