Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

I decided that since I bought Dorie's Baking cookbook and was making recipes from there, that I would go ahead and join the Tuesdays with Dorie group. So, this is my first post as a member of this group! This week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe came from Amanda of Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake. Amanda chose Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler.

My first thought was "Oh man. This is my first TWD week and rhubarb is now out of season and I just used the last of my frozen rhubarb on Justin's Birthday Pie." I was deflated. Then, I saw how expensive fresh cherries were and I thought there was just no way I would be able to do this weeks challenge. Well, as luck would have it, I cleaned out my refrigerator freezer and lo and behold, I found I did have one more package of rhubarb! Not only that, I found a can of cherries in my cupboard. So that is what I went with!

I was only able to get the one photo as this dish ended up going with my son Christopher to his dad's side of the family. His Great Grandmother Snow passed away on Friday - she was 94 years old. I will always remember his Great Grandma as a woman who never had a bad thing to say about anyone. She was a good woman and lived a long life. May she rest in peace.

For the full recipe go check out Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake and to see how the rest of the group did visit the blogroll.
