Gunfighter Cherry Cobbler
- 1 cup
- 2 Tablespoons
- 2 cans (16-ounces) sour
cherries (water packed)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons
to 425° F.
In a medium saucepan,
add sugar and flour. Mix. Next, stir in the juice
from the cherries. Cook over medium heat. Stir until bubbling.
Add cherries and bring
to a boil. Pour into your shallow 2-quart casserole dish.
Into a medium
bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter or
margarine. You want the mixture to become crumbs.
Now, stir in enough milk
so that the mixture looks like a batter. Finally, with a tablespoon,
drop batter onto cherries. Bake for 25 minutes or
until top in browned.
