Ingredients Ingredients * Â½ c water * 2 T lemon juice * Â½ c + 2 T sugar * 1 T cornstarch * 4 cups sour cherries, pitted * 1 c flour * Â½ t baking soda * 1 t baking powder * Â½ t salt * 3 T melted butter * Â½ c buttermilk or cream Directions Combine water, lemon juice, cornstarch and Â½ 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, crÃ¨me fraÃ®che, or vanilla ice cream.
