Cherry Sugar Cookie Cobbler is fresh cherry cobbler with a sugar cookie topping. It's sweet and juicy and packed with fresh cherries! This easy cherry cobbler recipe makes the perfect dessert any time. Best served warm, topped with a scoop of ice cream or some fresh whipped cream.
My first cherry recipe of the year and it's a goodie! Fresh cherry sugar cookie cobbler. It makes my mouth water saying it. My other cherry recipe are these chocolate macarons with cherry frosting.
I'm excited to make more desserts with the fresh cherries, too. Maybe some chocolate cherry cheesecake cups or roasted cherry parfaits.
Okay, so this fresh cherry cobbler is pretty darn amazing. It's juicy from all the fresh cherries and has a buttery taste from the butter in the sugar cookie top.
If you're into less juice, I recommend adding some cake crumbs or cookie crumbs in with the fresh cherries at the bottom. That will help soak up some of the juice.
I realized how much I enjoyed fresh cherry desserts when I was up to my in-laws and had some fresh cherry cobbler. It was cakier than mine, but still very good!
You know, I've looked into a cherry pitter several times. I almost bought one until I saw it was 12 dollars. It normally doesn't take much to convince me to get a new kitchen gadget, but I just don't eat cherries enough to validate the purchase.
So, I stood at the sink for an hour and halved and pitted all my cherries by hand. The skin around my nails was purple but well worth it. Just don't accidentally miss a pit. That's an awesome way to break a tooth.

It was good but not fantastic. It seemed like I was missing something. My husband said it was missing chocolate. 😉
