Make sure the fruit filling is hot when you spoon the biscuit batter over it. That way, the bottom of the "cobbled biscuit" will be thoroughly cooked. Taken from the Better Homes and Gardens Dieter's Cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For biscuit topping, in a medium bowl stir together flour, 2tablespoons of the granulated sugar, the baking powder, orange peel, and 1/2 tsp of the cinamon. Using a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  2. For filling, in a medium saucepan stir together the cold water, cornstarch, the remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, and the remaining 1/2 tespoon cinnamon; add frozen cherries. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in apple slices; heat through. Reduce heat; keep filling hot.
  3. In a small bowl stir together egg and milk. Add to biscuit topping mixture, stirring just until moistened. Transfer hot filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Immediately spoon topping into 9 small mounds on filling.
  4. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a woode toothpick inserted near the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Serve warm.

Made your cobbler just as you posted it & it came out beautifully ~ A REALLY GREAT TASTING DESSERT! I used Granny Smith apples, & those, along with the tart cherries made for a very satisfying treat! This is certainly a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Beverage Tag]
