      I really liked the cherry filling, but the crust left something to be desired. I thought it was not sweet enough. It tasted like plain bisquick dough and I even added the sugar on top. Undecided on whether I will try it again to see if it was a chef error.

      This cobbler was yummy and easy. When making other cobblers, I hadn't ever cooked the fruit seperately at first but I'm glad I did in this recipe. It insured the topping wasn't gooey on the bottom. I used 1/2 cup of sugar in this recipe and that made the cherries sweet enough but next time I think I'll add a tablespoon or two of sugar to the topping part of the recipe. Also, next time I'll add 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract to the cherries.
