Homemade Sour Cherry Cobbler

Personally, I find homemade sour cherry cobbler to be one of the best comfort foods. It's a dessert that can satisfy your sweet tooth without being overly sweet. Or, it can be sweetened up more by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Today, I'd like to share my mom's homemade sour cherry cobbler recipe and hope that it becomes a family favorite. One challenge I had when making this recipe is finding sour cherries. A few gourmet shops had them, but wanted over $8 for an 8-ounce jar.

I ran across a great deal at Nuts.com. Their cherries are only $4.99 for a 24-ounce jar and they taste amazing! I have shopped at Nuts.com for years and highly recommend them. They have thousands of products, including organics, at very affordable prices.
