This was an easy cobbler that I whipped together for dessert for my boyfriend's birthday. I subbed gluten free flour, Splenda, margarine, and Egg Beaters all with excellent results. I forgot to sprinkle the sugar cinnamon mixture on top, but I like that the biscuit topping isn't too sweet. It really balances the filling well. Of course the dish was lovely with vanilla ice cream. Thank you for posting!

LOVED this! The mandarin oranges cut the super sweetness of the cherries. A wonderful, different cobbler that I will surely make again and again.

I made this with fresh pineapple instead of mandarin oranges, and it came out wonderful. I will definitely try it again both ways.

This is a wonderful change from the regular cherry cobbler. The orange segments add not only a flavorful but also a colorful dimension to an old stand-by. I made as directed with lovely results : ) Thanks, Sydney Mike!

I liked this a lot. I think the oranges cut the sweetness a little. The biscuits on top were flakey and buttery. And it's pretty too. Thanks Sydney.

So, when I made this..I REALLY thought there would not be enough bisquit mix to spoon on top of the filling. And there kind of wasn't. It seemed ALMOST there but not quite, so that there was some space around the edges without a topping. I also didn't realize that I needed to spread out the topping on top of the filling with a spoon, as the mixture was VERY sticky and the filling was hot, it was difficult to do this. It was also difficult to get the butter evenly distributed, so next time I will cut it up in VERY small pieces. I don't think the filling needs to be kept HOT. It can sit over the heat after it boils, though there is value in boiling off the excess liquid. I didn't have mandarin oranges in a can (or any, this doesn't exsist where I live) so I cut up 3 fresh large oranges. 2 would have sufficed. I also used a combination of pie filling and marichino cherries. I felt that the sugar/cinnamon mixture on the top was TOO much and only used half of it. I thought it would be overly sweet, but it wasn't. My husband felt that the oranges were very much out of place. I liked it. It was a bit tart, though. Next time I will use blueberry pie filling and peaches in a can, which I think would be more our tastes and would go better with the rather bland bisquit mix. But I will make it again because it was a BEAUTIFUL presentation and simple with just the right amount of work to add the special touch. I would likely also use a bit more butter to dot the top. And whole milk is not necessary. Any type of milk/cream is fine. Would be excellent with ice cream, a good vanilla bean...though we didn;t have any.

This was so good! I used light pie filling, w.w pastry flour, hard margarine, skim milk. It wasn't too tangy, just right! Very easy to make. Would be good on ice cream too. Thanks again!
