Schoolhouse Cherry Cobbler

It is my experience that men like dishes with crusts and particularly that my father-in-law adores cobbler. I had to go to his town this morning for court (45 minutes away) and happily had two slices of this concoction left over from last night's baking so took them on a plate, and they were happily received.

*Schoolhouse Cherry Cobbler*

In a medium bowl mix:

2 cans tart cherries in water (drained but keep and use 1/3 c. juice)
3/4 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1/2 t. salt
1 drop almond extract

In a small bowl cut together:

1/3 c. flour
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. oatmeal
1 t. cinnamon
3 T. butter or margarine

Spread cherry mixture in a glass pieplate. Top evenly with crumb topping. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake 30 minutes more. Oh my, this is so good. And not even that bad for you.

This sounds wonderful! You have the best dessert recipes, Anna. Your recipe for gingerbread was very well-received in my home earlier this week as well. :o)
