  • Filling
  • 6- 8 cups sour cherries pitted
  • 1/2 cup Jack Daniel's
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp Minute Tapioca
  • Cobbler Topping
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 350º
  • Combine cherries, Jack Daniels and 1/2 cup sugar in large baking dish (I use 9 x 13 pan so all the cherries are in the marinade. Marinate cherries for about an hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Drain before using in the cobbler.
  • In large bowl whisk together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut 3/4 cups of chilled butter into small cubes.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut butter to the flour mixture until it looks like large course crumbs.
  • Gradually pour in the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. DON'T overwork; dough should be slightly sticky and large clumps.
  • Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a 10 inch round pan or 9x9 square pan (I used oven for this).
  • Stir tapioca into drained cherries.
  • Add drained cherries on top of butter to pan (do not stir).
  • Sprinkle with a bit more sugar if you like the cherries sweeter.
  • Drop the dough by tablespoons over the cherries. Leave in clumps, don't smooth out.
  • Brush the top with some cream and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place baking pan on cookie sheet (to catch any liquid that bubbles over)
  • Bake 50-60 mins in 350º oven and the top is golden brown and fruit is bubbling.
  • Serve warm with scoop of vanilla ice cream.
