Quick Cherry Cobbler

"I found this recipe in the Betty Crocker "Good and Easy" cookbook and it's become a family favorite. The almond and cherry combination is wonderful. It's such a fast recipe, using ingredients that are easily kept on hand. UPDATE 2/16/09: Thanks to several reviews pointing out that the recipe needs to be served a la mode, I am modifying the original recipe to the way I've been making it myself for years now. I've always had ice cream in step 8 as a serving option (have now added it to the ingredient list) & I've always used a full teaspoon of almond extract in the mix because we prefer the stronger flavor. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to review. *Tink"

  1. FANTASTIC and couldn't be any easier; I got rave reviews on it tonight. I served it with Baskin Robbins french vanilla ice cream on top...yummy. It was so simple and quick I nearly felt guilty getting complimented on it! The other great thing is that you always have the ingredients on hand, so you can just throw it together in a snap. Thanks for the post. Its a keeper. :)
  2. I think this just might be the perfect "emergency" dessert! It's very easy to prepare, very tasty, and cooks up quickly. If you suddenly need a dessert and don't want to fall back on ice cream, just keep pie filling and Bisquick on hand and you'll always be able to make this! I used blueberry pie filling instead of cherry (it's what I had on hand) and, instead of starting in a cold oven, I preheated the oven and warmed the filling in a glass baking dish in the microwave. Thanks for the recipe; it's a keeper!
  3. YES...this is fast and easy..Hubby likes it he loves cherries...I will try apple next time. Nothing to change. Thank You
  4. 5 stars for being so quick, easy and delicious! I did use the full teaspoon of almond extract because that's such a nice flavor with cherries. Gosh, I had this in the oven in minutes....couldn't be any easier! Of course, we had to have this with some good vanilla ice cream. A very nice old-fashioned treat. Thanks so much Tinkerbell :)
  5. Cheap and quick, yes. Easy to make, absolutely. Delicious, not at all. It was extremely bland and needed considerable help with whipped and/or ice cream. Some how, even the flavor of the pie filling got lost. My family didn't like it at all. I'm sorry but I can't give this more then 2 stars, and I'm only giving that because it was so easy and cheap to make.


  1. We love this and I was going to post it, but I found you already had. I have never used the almond extract in mine and I use whipped cream instead of ice cream. It is oh so yummy!


Hi! I am happily married with two children, 26 and 12. For nearly 10 years when this site was Recipezaar and then Food.com I hosted several different forums. I enjoyed making, creating, reviewing, and photographing recipes, but what I miss the most are the friendships I made here. I was Food Editor for the Mill Creek View Newspaper in Mill Creek, WA. for about 4 years during that time. Currently I am the office manager at a small mental health clinic. I'm not on this site much anymore, but I do continue to appreciate and respond to all reviews posted to my recipes.
