  1. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until topping is brown and filling is bubbling.
  2. Cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Top with a tablespoon of vanilla ice cream (for an additional 35 calories).  Do it – I was bumming that I didn’t have any ice cream for that extra yummy contrast of hot and cold.

  1. Cherries! At my house I’m not sure those cherries would last long enough to be made into a cobbler. I love the Cooking light year long cook books, always great recipes. I think I have the 2007 one it’s my favorite and every year I say I need to buy this years and then it skips my mind and I forget all about it! Great recipe, enjoy!
