Celebrate National Cherry Pie Day

Cherry Cobbler to Celebrate National Cherry Pie Day.
With today being National Cherry Pie Day, I wanted to make a cherry pie, but couldn't find frozen or fresh cherries.   So I used a can of cherry pie filling (not my favorite choice) to make a cherry cobbler using the recipe below.

Enjoy this recipe for Cherry Cobbler. It's made with canned cherries or with a cherry pie filling option.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes


  • 4 oz. butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of salt (optional)
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 20 oz. can cherry pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in  8x8 square or equivalent pan.

Melt one stick of butter in 8 x 8 inch pan.
 In a medium bowl with a wire whisk, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk. 
Combine completely. Pour batter into prepared pan.  

Batter ready to add to butter in pan.
Add cherry pie filling to batter.  Do not stir.
Finished cobbler with crust rising up through filling.
Ready to celebrate National Cherry Pie Day.
Pour cherry pie filling over batter in pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cobbler crust will rise up through cherry mixture.

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. This recipe for Cherry Cobbler Serves 6 - 8.

It would have been better had I used fresh or frozen cherries.  But I was short on time and didn't have time to run around town looking for frozen cherries.
