   16                    California dried figs
    1                    No.2 can pie cherries
    1       t            Cinnamon
    2       tb           Cake flour
    1       c            Sugar
    3       tb           Butter -- melted
                         Biscuit dough
 
   With scissors, snip off fig stems, and cut figs into small bits.  In a
   pudding dish, combine figs, cherries and their syrup.  Mix cinnamon, cake
   flour and sugar together and stir into fruit.  Melt butter and stir into
   fruit.  Make half the amount of your favorite biscuit recipe - or use
   biscuit mix - and be sure to add 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and 3
   Tbsps. more milk than the recipe calls for.  Drop biscuit dough from a
   teaspoon onto the fruit.  Bake in a hot oven (450 F.) for 6 minutes, then
   lower heat to moderate (350 F.) for about 20 minutes or until cobbler is
   bubbly and biscuits are quite done.  Serves 5 or 6.  Extra good when
   served with top milk or cream flavored with cinnamon, vanilla and
   generously sweetened.
