Sooo, how exited are we about this season’s cherries?

I am pretty head over heals for all things cherry at the moment…which is why I made this cobbler. See lately, every time I have to run to the store (so like everyday), I see those pretty red cherries and I just HAVE to buy a bag. I am beyond fearful of the day that I go to the store and they are no longer on the shelves. Therefore, I am stocking up. The problem is that even though I seem to think my stomach is huge and can hold pounds and pounds of cherries, it’s actually pretty tiny and well, can’t.

The good news is, I can make cobbler with all my excess cherries. And trust me, this is such good, good news! Specifically cherry cobbler with honey butter vanilla bean biscuits (so much yum!) and then served with this salty honey ice cream.

Just yes in so many ways.

Cherry Cobbler with Honey Butter Vanilla Bean Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cherries pitted
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar * may sub brown sugar or granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla + one vanilla bean seeds removed, optional
  • teaspoon pinch of sea salt about 1/4
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon optional
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Biscuits

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons cold salted butted cubed, or unsalted with a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 vanilla bean seeds removed

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lightly rub 8-9 inch pie plate with a little softened butter or cooking spray. In the pie plate, combine the cherries, coconut sugar (use 1/2 cup if you prefer things a bit sweeter), lemon juice, vanilla, vanilla bean (if using), a pinch of sea salt and bourbon (if using). Toss well to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Whisk until combined. Using a fork, pastry blender or your hands, add butter pieces to the flour and mix until coarse little crumbles remain. Whisk together the buttermilk and honey and pour into the flour. Stir with a spoon until just combined, trying not to over mix. Use your hands if needed to bring the dough together.
  4. Use a 1/4 cup measure to drop batter onto the cherries or press dough on a sheet of parchment paper or cutting board, and then use a biscuit cutter to shape the dough into rounds. Place the rounds on top of the cobbler.
  5. Bake the cobbler for 40-45 minutes or until the cherries are bubbling and the biscuits lightly golden. If the biscuits begin to get too golden, cover the cobbler with foil until the cherries are fully cooked. Serve warm. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with scoop of ice cream if desired.
