So just realized that today is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. There is a day for everything nowadays isn’t there! Well, you won’t hear me complaining. Peanut Butter is a staple in my house, whether just a spoonful (don’t judge I know you do it too), or baked into a yummy dessert. Here are a few of my favorite peanut butter recipes from around the web (preferential treatment given to chocolate and peanut butter).
May 17th is National Cherry Cobbler Day so naturally, we’re celebrating with a delicious + easy cherry cobbler recipe! Serve these up for Memorial Day or anytime you want a sweet and delicious dessert recipe!
Easy Cherry Cobbler Recipe
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 4 cups pitted fresh tart cherries
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons shortening
- 1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400°. Blend 1 1/4 cups sugar, cornstarch, cherries, and almond extract in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Continue to boil and stir for 1 minute. Pour fruit mixture into an ungreased 2-quart casserole. Place in oven while preparing dough.
Measure flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add shortening and milk. Cut shortening in several times then stir until dough forms a ball. Drop dough in about 6 spoonfuls onto hot fruit. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Serve warm with cream, if desired, or cool slightly and serve with vanilla ice cream.
