This was so very good!!! I used the tart cherries instead of the pie filling; to me the flavor was much better than the pie filling usually is. The only thing I did differently, was after topping the warm cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, I decided to drizzle some chocolate syrup lightly over the entire dish - my entire family loved it! It was like eating chocolate covered cherries! Wonderful recipe!

This is a very good recipe. I just used cherry pie filling, but the crust turned out great.
