Cherry Cobbler for Two – for when you need something sweet just for you and your sweetheart. Simple and quick to make.
I love cherries! Have I said that before? I probably have, many times in fact. Well since I’ve been making salads almost every day this week, I decided it was time for some dessert, so what better way to celebrate, then with a gorgeous cherry cobbler. Not that there’s any special reason to celebrate, but we don’t need a special occasion to enjoy a beautiful cherry cobbler, do we?
Since it’s just my husband and I, I didn’t want to make a huge cherry cobbler and ok I’ll admit the truth, I really wanted to use my gorgeous ramekins. Aren’t they adorable, and one of those makes the perfect cobbler size for a person. This cherry cobbler was so good it’s making my favorites list, and it was very easy to make as well.
Start by preheating your oven to 400 F degrees. You’ll need about 2 cups of cherries pitted. Recently I discovered a great OXO Good Grips Cherry PitterPitters), that I’ve been using a lot to pit cherries and olives. I just love it. So pit the cherries, and wash them.
Add 2 tablespoons of sugar, dash of salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the cherries and mix well. Set aside the cherries and get a medium size bowl and add the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk and butter. Using a fork mix everything together. This is why I love this cherry cobbler, so simple to put together. Now normally you’d have to butter the ramekins, but I forgot to do that, however, nothing stuck so that was great, less calories for me. Anyway, add half the cherries to each “buttered” ramekin.
Oh this makes me so happy, they are so beautiful. Now add the crumble on top of each ramekin.
And that’s that! All you have to do now is bake it for about 30 minutes, or until nice and golden. I lied, there’s one more thing left to do and that is to enjoy this delicious cherry cobbler with your significant other. It will make you very happy, both of you!
Trust me, very happy!
