My husband's favorite dessert is cherry anything...cobbler, pie, anything cherry. When his mother was still with us, she always made him a cherry cobbler for his birthday instead of a birthday cake, by his request. He just had a birthday, so this "Cherry Almond Cobbler" was his birthday treat! While I am sure it was not as good as his mother's and we all wish she could still be here to make it for him, he did say it passed the test in yumminess! This is super easy to make and the hint of almond flavor really goes well with the cherries! Here is what you will need:
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup self rising flour
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. almond flavoring
2 (21 oz.) cans cherry pie filling
1 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a 9"x13" baking pan, melt the butter. In a bowl mix the sugar, milk, flour, vanilla and almond flavoring. Pour that evenly over the butter. DO NOT STIR or MIX.
Spoon the cherry pie filling evenly over the batter. DO NOT STIR. Sprinkle the top with the sliced almonds. Place in the preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until brown.
Serve slightly warm with ice cream or whipped cream! It's so yummy!
