Dad's Easy Cherry Cobbler

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JeanT

My dad made this for us as kids. He would put it in the oven as we sat down for dinner and the smell would entice us all to finish our plates, even on the dreaded stroganoff nights! It works great with any kind of pie filling, especially blueberry, as long as it is thick. Be sure to let the dessert rest before serving. The filling is akin to liquid magma when it first comes out of the oven!

This was so easy and so good! Hard to believe only 4 ingredients could produce this great dessert! Made for Pick a Chef event, spring 2014.
