  • Preheat oven to 400 F. degrees.
  • Pour the cherry cobbler filling into a baking pan, set aside. I used an 9 inch round baking pan.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a bowl.
  • Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until coarse crumbs form. Set aside.
  • In a separate small bowl slightly beat the egg and add the milk.
  • Pour the milk and egg into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until just moistened.
  • Drop by spoonfuls over the cherry cobbler filling.
  • Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and cooked through the center.
  • Makes 5- 6 servings depending on how large you make the mounds of biscuit topping.



  • Make blackberry, peach or apple cobbler by changing the fruit pie filling.
  • Cobbler topping is an old fashioned drop biscuit that is a one bowl recipe.
