It's hard to find a cobbler recipe that's easier than this one. Top cherry pie filling and canned dark sweet cherries with strips of white bread drizzled with sugar, butter, egg, and lemon rind. In just minutes, your kitchen will be filled with the irresistible aroma of baking cobbler. Save even more time by using store-bought, crustless white bread for the topping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together pie filling, cherries, and 2 tablespoons flour. Stir in almond extract. Place in a lightly greased 8-inch-square baking dish.

Step 2

Trim crusts from bread slices; cut each slice into 5 strips. Arrange bread strips over fruit mixture.

Step 3

Stir together remaining 2 tablespoons flour, sugar, and next 3 ingredients; drizzle over bread strips.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Step 5

Too-Easy Peach Cobbler: Substitute 2 (16-ounce) packages frozen peaches, thawed and drained, for cherry pie filling and canned cherries. Omit almond extract and grated lemon rind. Proceed as directed.

Step 6

Too-Easy Berry Cobbler: Substitute 1 (21-ounce) can blueberry pie filling and 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen whole strawberries, unthawed, for cherry pie filling and canned cherries. Omit almond extract; add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Proceed as directed.

good solid recipe. Easy to make. No complaints. Make sure you drain the dark sweet cherries first. I missed that and it was more like soup. My guests were gracious and ate it anyway!

My family loved this! I made the mixed berry version, using a can of cherry pie filling and frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries raspberries and blackberries.) Very good topped with whipped cream or plain!

My girls liked this, but I did not. The bread on top is just strange and gives it an un-cobbler-like flavor. There are other easy cobbler recipes that are better.
