For The Cherry Filling:

2 1/2 cups pitted fresh cherries
2/3 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of butter

For The Cobbler Dough:

1 cup of flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of vegetable shortening
1/3 cup of whole milk


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F

Arrange the cherries in a 1 quart casserole. Sprinkle the cherries with the sugar, flour and lemon juice. Dot with the tablespoon of butter.

Prepare the cobbler dough by sifting the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Cut in the shortening until crumbly. Add the milk all at once and stir just until the dough follows the fork around the bowl. Spoon dough over the top of the cherry mixture in the baking dish.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until done. Serve warm as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
