Cherry Good Cobbler
Almond-flavored cherry pie filling is topped with tender, homemade orange-flavored biscuits and a zesty almond cinnamon-sugar mixture.
2 (21-ounce) cans cherry pie filling and topping
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- For Filling: Combine cherry filling and almond extract in an ungreased 8x8x2-inch baking pan.
- For Orange-Almond Biscuits: Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl; mix well. Add orange juice, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls over cherry filling, making at least 8 dumplings.
- For Topping: Combine almonds, sugar, orange peel and cinnamon in a small bowl; mix well. Sprinkle on top of cobbler.
- Bake in a preheated 350°F (175°F) oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until filling is bubbly and dumplings are brown.
