Name Sour Cherry Cobbler
Source The Veggie Table



* ½ c water
* 2 T lemon juice
* ½ c + 2 T sugar
* 1 T cornstarch
* 4 cups sour cherries, pitted
* 1 c flour
* ½ t baking soda
* 1 t baking powder
* ½ t salt
* 3 T melted butter
* ½ c buttermilk or cream

Directions Combine water, lemon juice, cornstarch and ½ c sugar in pot over medium heat. Stir well to dissolve cornstarch, then add cherries.

Simmer for a minute, taste, and add more sugar or lemon if necessary.

Pour into baking dish or casserole.

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine flour, baking soda and powder, salt, and 2 T sugar in a bowl.

Whisk the melted butter into the buttermilk, then add it to the dry ingredients.

Mix minimally but well, until you end up with a sticky mixture.

Drop spoonfuls of dough on top of the dish of fruit. (Because the dough is so sticky, the easist way to do this is to get a spoonful and use the other spoon to scrape it out.) You'll end up with a lumpy biscuit that does not quite cover the fruit.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
Notes Serve the cobbler hot with whipped cream, crème fraîche, or vanilla ice cream.
