       Title: BUSY DAY COBBLER
  Categories: Desserts, Usenet
       Yield: 6 servings
  
     1/4 c  Butter (or margarine,
            -if you must)
     1/2 c  Sugar
     2/3 c  Milk
       1 c  Flour
       2 t  Baking powder
      13 oz Tart cherries
            -(one normal U.S. can)
       2 T  Sugar (to sweeten
            -and thicken; use less
            -or more as needed)
  
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Drain cherries, saving liquid.
   
   Cream butter and sugar together.  Alternately add in milk and sifted
   dry ingredients.  Pour into a buttered and floured casserole dish.
   Top evenly with cherries.  Sprinkle sugar on top and cover with saved
   liquid/juice. Bake 45-50 minutes.
   
   The batter will expand and surround the cherries so they're evenly
   mixed throughout the cobbler.  The juice will congeal to fruity and
   pudding-like. Serve warm topped with cream, milk or ice cream.  (I
   prefer milk). If any is left, it’s good cold, too.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  An extremely quick cherry cobbler dessert -- This recipe came from
   a PTA recipe collection from my Aunt’s school a number of years ago.
   It’s not a true, classic cobbler, but I think it’s better.  My
   favorite dessert!
   
   *  As the name implies, this is a very quick recipe to make.
   Depending on how soft the butter is to start with, or whether or if
   you use a food processor (I don't, but it should work) this recipe
   takes only 5 to 10 minutes to mix.
   
   *  You can use any unsweetened canned fruit for this recipe.  You can
   also use frozen fruit, by thawing it before adding to the pan.
   Berries or peaches are standard substitutes. Yesterday I made one
   with crushed pineapple.  I used brown, rather than white sugar atop
   the fruit. It tasted very much like pineapple upside down cake
   (though the appearance was a bit different).
   
   : Difficulty:  easy, I've been making this since I was about 8 or 9.
   : Time:  5 minutes preparation, 45 minutes cooking.
   : Precision:  approximate measurement OK.
