Crisp Cherry Cobbler

We have a beautiful cherry tree in our backyard...and last weekend, my boyfriend and I spent 30 minutes picking cherries of the lowest branches.

We picked a lot...but barely made a dent, so we will be picking more this weekend.

I actually don't care for fresh cherries but I LOVE cherry pie and cherry cobbler, so that was my plan for these cherries...but 4 gallon size bags of cherries would've made a whole lotta cobbler! So, I gave 3 bags to family and saved the last one for baking.

I found this recipe online and decided it sounded the yummiest and easiest.
I'm quite pregnant these days and didn't want something too involved because it's getting harder and harder to be on my feet for very long.

I made a couple changes to the recipe...using probably 5 cups of pitted cherries and all butter, no shortening.

The cherries were pretty easy to pit, I basically just smashed them open with my fingers and ripped out the seeds because they cherries didn't need to look pretty for the cobbler.

I mixed up the cherries with the sugar and flour...

Then mixed together the crisp topping and sprinkled chunks over the whole tray....

Then baked!

I am supposed to be staying away from sweets...but come on...I had to try it...twice.

Great recipe, I will definitely be making this again and again.
