I picked up these mini cast iron skillets at a local southern kitchen store, but you can also find them online. You can also find them in a variety of sizes. Mine are 5-inches wide. I added a yellow and white gingham napkin to the handle because the beauty of cast iron skillets is that they stay very hot! This makes serving these cherry cobblers a perfect treat – no worrying about keeping them warm for guests.

This dessert can easily be made year-round with frozen fruits (try peaches or blueberries too), and you can absolutely combine fruits for a mixed variety. The possibilities are truly endless. If you want to be really decadent, top it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, and let it melt right into the cobbler topping!

Cast Iron Cherry Cobblers

51

1 large cast iron pan or 2 small cast iron pans

Ingredients

    For the cherry filling:
  • 3 cups pitted tart cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • For the cobbler topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Place cherries in saucepan on medium heat. Cover for 10-15 minutes, stirring often.
  2. Add in sugar, cornstarch (sugar and cornstarch whisked together), and almond extract. Turn to low heat and simmer for two minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. *You can cool and use later for skillet cobblers, or use right away.
  3. Pour all of cherry filling into 1 large skillet or divide evenly for 2 mini skillets. You want the cherry filling to fill about ½ of the skillet (it might overflow if filled more than half).
  4. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in cubed butter until mixture is crumbly. Drop spoonfuls of cobbler topping on top of cherry filling.
  5. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil to catch any cherry filling that comes out of skillet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes. This will depend on whether you are making one larger cobbler or two smaller ones. Watch carefully, and cobblers are done when cobbler topping is golden brown.
