I love this simple cherry cobbler so much that I used to ask for it on my birthday instead of a birthday cake. Everyone I've ever made it for have loved it. My mom taught me the recipe and I've played around with it only a little (by cutting down the sugar slightly or using a different pie filling.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in casserole dish (or the dish you use to bake the cobbler).
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, flour, and sugar.
  4. Pour the mixture into the dish with the butter, don't stir.
  5. Then add the pie filling again, not stirring, but do take a fork and move the filling around, just to disperse the mixture.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.

I first heard of this recipe, and tried it, several decades ago. Of course, it's not a "cobbler" in the truest since of the word, but its simplicity makes up for that. I used 1 lb. of frozen peaches, and also reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. Few ingredients, minimal prep time to get into the oven, and taste make it a keeper. Wish I'd added a bit of cinnimon to the peaches. Thanks for posting!

This is my kind of recipe - easy and delicous ! I went with the 3/4 cup of sugar , no sugar added cheerry pie filling and 1/4 cup butter. I'm looking forward to making this with no sugar added apple pie filling. Also made it in an 8 x 8 dish. Thanks for a great, easy and good recipe !

Delicious, quick and EASY! You can put this together in 5 min. or less! I used the suggested 3/4 C. sugar (instead of 1 C.) and used only 1/4 C. of butter. The pan size wasn't mentioned in the instructions, so I used an 8" X 8" pan and it worked out great. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
