How to Make Amazing Cherry Cobbler Bars!

by Rikki Kazmierowicz

So today I decided I wanted to make something with cherries, as a welcome home gift for my parents. So I created these. I call them cherry cobbler bars. They are to die for. Make them and comment!! :)

Supplies

  • 4 Cups Cherries (pitted)
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • ⅔ Cups Sugar (separated)
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • ½ Cups Butter
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons Vanilla
  • ¾ Teaspoons Salt
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  • Coconut (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Pick your cherries. I have a tree, I actually fell out of it trying to get these cherries. But the cobbler was so good it was worth the scrapes I got. ;)

    Step 2

    Pit your cherries! This takes forever but stick with it! (I listened to spotify, on my iPhone.)

    Step 3

    Stir cherries in a pot with lemon juice, cornstarch, and 1/3 cup sugar. Cook till cherries are soft.

    Step 4

    Put butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in mixer, cream together. Slowly add in flour. Stir until just combined, press into the bottom of a greased pan.

    Step 5

    Add cherries on top. Spread it all out evenly with a rubber spatula.

    Step 6

    Bake for about 25 minutes, at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Have a slice to make sure it's all the way cooked through. Don't over bake!

    Step 7

    Dust with powdered sugar and sprinkle with coconut (if desired).

    Step 8

    Cut into bars. Eat 5, because you won't be able to stop yourself.

    Step 9

    Save some for your parents, because this was supposed to be there welcome home gift after all. ;)
