    vlynn's Note:

    Got this from a family cookbook. I think it originally came from a restaurant that is no longer in business. It is wonderful. The best cherry cobbler I've ever eaten. I think the crust is the key. Enjoy!!!

      This recipe is very close to the real deal...seems like there is a very little something missing...but I can't put my finger on it (they must have a secret ingredient of some sort). We still have an Underwood's cafeteria in Brownwood, TX (central texas)...and the cobbler is still great...just like everything else on their menu. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Thanks vlynn for this wonderful recipe. I too live in Eastern NM and remember eating this cherry cobbler years ago, at Lubbock, TX. Memory fades but I think we had an Underwoods here too. This is added to my favorites list!

      This was fairly easy to make and the taste is really nice. I had problems with the crust, in that I was not sure how much water to add and after about 50 minutes to 1 hour, it still would not brown. Could be my oven though. Thanks for posting.
