Happy Cherry Cobbler Day!!

If you have any wonderful cherries around your house (and hopefully NY cherries), then remember today is National Cherry Cobbler Day.

National Cherry Cobbler Day is dedicated every May 17th to the delicious tart dessert that many enjoy with ice cream.
According o the National Calendar Day website: "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 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," the website states.

The difference between a cobbler and a crisp is a cobbler doesn't have oatmeal in it. But both can be topped with yummy vanilla ice cream.
