National Cherry Cobbler Day

Today is National Cherry Cobbler Day! Cherry cobbler is a baked dessert made with a rich fruit filling and a biscuit dough crust. In the 19th century, pioneers in the American West were forced to adapt many recipes due to a lack of basic ingredients. The traditional pie evolved into the cobbler, which was often served as the main dish of the meal!

No one knows how cobblers got their name, but there are several theories. One source suggests that the word “cobbler” evolved from “cobeler,” which was a specific type of wooden bowl used in cooking. Other culinary historians believe the name may have been inspired by the dessert’s resemblance to a cobblestone.

To celebrate National Cherry Cobbler Day, bake your own delicious cobbler and serve it as the main course for dinner tonight!
