Cherry Cobbler

It’s gorgeous. It’s glisteny. It’s what I made for Gdad’s birthday in Estes.

Homemade Cherry Cobbler. Mmmm.

The best part is the pastry. Second place goes to the cherries. And third, the way a little half & half tastes dribbled atop the whole thing right out of the oven.

Just one more look …

I sprinkled a little raw sugar on the pastry right before baking. Can you see the marvelous? Right beside the glistening cherries, the flaky pastry?

Do you need to take the pastry pie crust pledge? Many people do. I promise, it will change your life.
