Cherry Cobbler with frozen cherries is one of my all-time favorite dessert recipes. It’s really simple to throw together, and it’s a personal family favorite over here. Not to mention, Florida cherry season is incredible! Most of the year I’ll use frozen cherries, but when cherry season hits all bets are off! I love to serve this right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream on top. It’s sweet and indulgent, while also getting your daily serving of fruit (hey, it counts, right?). Either way, this easy cherry cobbler recipe is always a slam dunk at my house!
