Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 cups pitted cherries

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

  • ⅓ cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 10 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • ¼ cup sugar

Recipe Directions

Preheat the oven to 375ºF and butter your Larder & Vine Skillet.

In a small bowl, mix the water and cornstarch into a slurry. In your Larder & Vine Saucepan, add cherries, cornstarch slurry, and sugar. Cook over medium heat and mix until the sauce thickens. Once the sauce has thickened, add lemon juice, then mix, cover, and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Add cold butter cubes and use a fork to work the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbs form. Add heavy cream and mix with a wooden spoon until a soft, wet dough forms.

Add the cherry mixture to your buttered skillet.

Cover your hands in flour and gently mold handfuls of the dough into about 4 to 5 thin patties and lay evenly on top of the cherry filling. Lightly brush the tops of the cobbler dough with melted butter then sprinkle sugar on top.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve each scoop with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
