National Cherry Cobbler Day
May 17, 2016
National Cherry Cobbler Day is celebrated annually on May 17th. Cherry Cobbler is a delicious dessert that is a favorite for young and old alike.
In the United States, cobbler refers to a variety of dishes that consist of a fruit filling ( cherry being a popular choice ) covered with a batter, biscuit or pie crust that is then baked. Some cobblers have both a top and bottom crust.
Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. It was because of the lack of suitable ingredients and the proper cooking equipment that the English settlers were unable to make their traditional suet puddings, so to improvise, they covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked biscuits or dumplings.
A cherry cobbler differs from a cherry crisp as the “crisp” usually has oatmeal in it. Sometimes the cobbler is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
