Firecracker Chocolate Cherry Cobbler

We love to use frozen pitted cherries such as tart red, dark sweet, or Rainier for this recipe. They're flash-frozen in season and you don't have to bother with pitting!

Firecracker Chocolate Cherry Cobbler

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 2-quart round baking dish.
  2. For the biscuits, in a medium bowl combine 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ground chipotle. Add the butter and, using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate. Add the 1/4 cup milk and stir until just moistened. Knead the dough 3 to 4 times in the bowl until it holds together. Form the dough into a disk.
  3. In a large saucepan combine the 3/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup flour; stir in cherries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cover to keep warm.
  4. On a floured surface roll biscuit dough out to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with assorted 2- to 3-inch star-shaped cutters, rerolling dough as necessary. Spoon hot filling into prepared dish. Arrange dough cutouts over filling. Brush cutouts with milk and sprinkle the tops with the coarse sugar.
  5. Bake 30 minutes or until filling is thick and bubbly and biscuits are baked through. Remove and let stand 30 minutes before serving.

I made this for Fourth of July and it was even better than I thought it was. The best cherry cobbler I've ever had. Served warm with some vanilla ice cream. I spent about $8 on cherries and the rest of the ingredients I had in the pantry. I'd say this feeds 6-8 people. This one is going into the family recipe book!

Seven cups of fruit for a two quart casserole. Makes this about a thirty dollar dessert that feeds four. I can't afford to cook like that.
