Firecracker Chocolate Cherry Cobbler
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 2-quart round baking dish.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
