Tuesday With Dorie - Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

This week on my adventures with Dorie Amanda from Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake selected Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler. In Many ways this was an interesting cobbler recipe. It is like most cobblers but the mix is different. I would not thought of Cherry and Rhubarb together and putting ginger in the topping would have never occurred to me. I only wish that she had cups of fruit listed instead of pounds. I do not have a kitchen scale so I had to guess on how much fruit to use. I have a feeling that I was off.

This cherry pitter that I got a few years ago at Goodwill was a life saver. It only took 10 minutes to pit 3 cups of cherries. I only use it maybe once a year but for only $2 it was a good buy. Rhubarb season is over for now here but I had dehydrated some when they where in season. I rehydrated around a cups worth.


The cobbler came out a little on the tart side. I like it that way but if I was making it for a potluck I think that I would add just a little more sugar and decease the amount of ginger in the topping. The fruit to topping was a little to much on the topping side. It needed more fruit. I made the biscuits as drop biscuits so after it was all together I just dropped the biscuits onto the fruit by the spoonful. I think that I will use this topping for the next cobbler that I make except I might use cinnamon instead of ginger or maybe cardamon.

For more cherry cobbler goodness visit Tuesday With Dorie. Next week I got to chose and I picked the Summer Fruit Galette on pages 366 - 367. So I will see you then.

I just came into a large crop of rhubarb from a friend's garden and I'm intrigued. How do I go about dehydrating it? (I have a machine). And can I snack on it dried?

I love cardamon! It is used alot here in Lebanon and often referred to as Hal (sounds like hel). It is ground together with coffee beens for that strong turkish style coffee. I drink heaps of it which is probably not good and probably why I stay awake way past my bedtime like right now lol.

Your cobbler looks wonderful and I look forward to your post next week! Lucky you, you had rhubarb! I am camping out next year just so I can get my hands on some before it's wiped out again like this year lol.

Glad it turned out pretty good -- I think the topping with other spices would be wonderful!
