Cherry cobbler is a baked dessert where bubbling cherries are covered with a layer of cookie dough. Looking at the rough cobbled top no one can say what treasure of fruits it is holding beneath it.
Wash cherries, remove stones from it. You may use a cherry pitter or if like me, just use your hands. You need not have whole cherries, even the divided ones will do.
Add brown sugar and toss lightly.
You may mix little cornflour (2 teaspoons) too at this stage. Corn flour is added so that the juices from the cherries turn into a sauce-like consistency. But it's not necessary. I didn't add cornflour.
Grease a 7" dish, round or any other shape.
Put the cherries and sugar mix into it. Keep it aside till you prepare the topping
Preheat oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes.
Take wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar in a bowl. Whisk nicely so that everything is mixed well.
Add cold butter in pieces in the flour mix. Rub this butter into the flour so that the flour resembles crumbs.
Put dollops of this shaggy dough all over the fruit mix. Cover it fully.
Bake in a preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes till the top gets a little brown.
Once out of the oven, you can serve directly. But seeing the weather, it is better to let it cool down and then keep it in the refrigerator as it is.
Serve it with love, either as it is or with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
