Bourbon Cherry Cobbler

July 10th, 2009 · 130 Comments

old wye mill mdA Southern Cherry Cobbler Recipe: The sour cherries we bought from Toigo last weekend went into a July 4th cobbler. I started with a recipe from 101 Cookbooks, the wonderful blog whose author is also responsible for the “Super Natural Recipe Search” button you may have noticed over on my left sidebar. I made a few additions — bourbon and corn meal — for a Southern twist. And the boy gets the credit for the blueberry polka dots, his contribution to create the requisite red, white and blue color scheme.

The corn meal, which is actual organic, local corn meal grown on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and milled once a month at the Historic Wye Mill, is a fairly course grind so I pulsed it in a food processor with a pinch of tapioca starch to make more of a corn flour. I found the bourbon flavor more pronounced the next day, and you can certainly omit the bourbon for a more sober dessert.

Recipe: Bourbon Cherry Cobbler
adapted from 101 Cookbooks

toigo sour cherries


  • 2 1/2 cups sour cherries, pitted
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch (or organic corn starch)
  • 1/3 cup corn meal, finely ground
  • 3/4 cup unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup organic buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon fair-trade bourbon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons organic butter, melted and cooled

Instructions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Butter a 9-inch pie pan and set aside. Gently toss together cherries, bourbon, starch and sugar in a bowl and set aside. Whisk together remaining dry ingredients. Separately, gently beat egg and combine with vanilla, buttermilk and butter. Stir into dry ingredients until just combined. Pour cherries into pie pan and dot with dollops of batter by the tablespoon, leaving a few gaps in between. (Optional, dot topping with blueberries or additional cherries.) Bake 20-22 minutes, until cherry liquid bubbles up and topping is lightly golden. Enjoy!

Farms of Origin: Toigo Orchard, PA (cherries), Westmoreland Berry Farms, VA (blueberries, hand-picked), Wye Mill, MD (organic corn meal), and a local egg from Tom the Cheese Guy, PA.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!

    You may use your IRA or 401 K to purchase a property in a posh area.
    Orange county management has a lot of convenient benefits that not only take care of
    all of those headaches for you. It is also worth
    mentioning that tenants don’t hand in applications for apartments that they don’t get wet and make the job of
    apex property management easier.

    this is one the best chat clients on the Samsung Monte. Being
    silent or quite like Norske menn or Norwegian men (no offense meant,
    it is just an example) may not always help, so
    one has to be careful enough to blend silence with intelligent humorous conversation.

    There are a variety of different ways that you can look for a new home for you and your family.
    For example, to buy foreclosure properties whereas buying a property at auction requires little or no
    cash. Mass mailing real estate letters and postcards might
    seem to be an outdated approach in the Internet age, but sometimes the
    old methods work best.

    Unfortunately, when we oppress what we don’t like about ourselves, it causes problems.
    Or perhaps this is taking parenting psychology a little too far.
    If you’re considering a psychology major, don’t feel like you have to
    have your act together, and be completely free of all issues and have everything all worked out.

    Radiations from computer, duplicator and other
    electrical equipments have a negative impact on our health.
    When children encounter difficult problem to solve (such as emotion, interpersonal relationship) and
    to their parents talk, some parents will still be thinking, and educate children to
