Too Easy Cobbler

2 (20 oz) cans cherry pie filling 
1 (15 oz) can pitted dark sweet cherries in heavy syrup, drained
4 Tbsp all-purpose flour, divided
½ tsp almond extract
5 white bread slices, crusts removed
1 1/4 c sugar ½ c butter, melted
1 large egg

 Stir together pie filling, cherries, and 2 Tbsp flour. Stir in almond extract. Place in a lightly greased 8" square pan. Cut each bread slice into 5 strips. Arrange bread strips over fruit mixture. Stir together remaining 2 Tbsp flour, sugar and next 2 ingredients; drizzle over bread strips. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

 Too Easy Peach Cobbler: Substitute 3 (16 oz) packages frozen peaches, thawed and drained. Omit almond extract. Proceed as directed, BUT use 9x13 pan 9-10 slices of bread 2 ½ c sugar (I would use less), 6 Tbsp flour (divided), 1 c butter, and 2 eggs

Jane Stone brought the peach cobbler to the RV rally, and it was a big hit, served with vanilla ice cream!

  1. It is probably a good thing that I didn't know that you could find all dark sweet cherries in cans! I love me some cherry pie, so I will have to try this cobbler, though I must say I'll try wheat bread instead of white.


Thanks for your feedback!
