Cranberry Filling:

  • 1 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar

Cobbler Topping:

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter or 12 tablespoons
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract could use vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  • Combine cranberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan on top of the stove and bring to a boil for 2 minutes stirring so they don't stick. The cranberries will begin to pop and sugar should be melted.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  • This is made in a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Melt the butter in the dish either in the microwave or the oven.  In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, milk and almond extract.  Pour the flour mixture in the baking dish on top of the melted butter and kind of spread out.
  • Cranberries should have soaked up the water by this time. Drop spoonfuls of cranberries on top of the flour mixture.  Sprinkle nuts on top of cranberries.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until nice and brown on top. Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy with ice cream or whipped cream on top.
