April 23, 2014 is National Cheesecake Day! This Cherry Cream Cheese Cobbler is easy to make and tastes like a cheesecake in a cobbler. What could be better than cheesecake and cobbler? Just add a big scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream for a dessert your family and friends will love.
1/2 cup butter or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, melted
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon almond extract (could use vanilla extract)
1 cup milk
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
Melt butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish. (I just put mine in the oven for a few minutes). In a bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder and whisk together. Add the extract, milk and egg to the flour mixture and stir to mix. Pour this over the melted butter in your baking dish but don’t mix it together. Drop spoonfuls of the cherry pie filling into the flour and butter. Cut the cream cheese up in small pieces and drop into the cobbler. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes. If top is not brown enough by then put under broiler for a few minutes. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!
Note: You can use different pie fillings such as blueberry, apple, etc.
