Servings 1 large cast iron pan or 2 small cast iron pans


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


  • Place cherries in saucepan on medium heat. Cover for 10-15 minutes, stirring often.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in cubed butter until mixture is crumbly. Drop spoonfuls of cobbler topping on top of cherry filling.
  • 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.
