Cherry Cobbler


This year we were able to pick lots of tart cherries, and freeze them for later use. I made the first cobbler with them just recently, and it was a special treat! 

I used this recipe for the filling: 

6 cups tart red cherries, pitted
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup water (I left this out, as we had so much juice in our cherries)
4 teaspoons cornstarch

I also added a few tablespoons of tapioca for good measure to make sure the filling thickened enough. :)

My mom then combined two different recipes for the crust and streusel topping, which I don't have with me to share at this time.  

It's something I definitely hope to make again with the cherries still remaining in our freezer!  It's such a blessing to be reminded of all the things our Lord has provided for us to many different flavors, colors, etc., just amazes me.  Very thankful to Him for these things! 

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 
1 Thessalonians 5:18

I hope you all have been enjoying your summer. : ) Thank you everyone so much for the comments you've left me recently - it always brightens my day to hear from you!

Thankful for Freedom


Thankful for another yearly reminder of the freedoms and many other undeserved blessings the Lord has graciously given to us... 
I hope all of my readers in the U.S. have a special Fourth of July weekend with family and friends. 

   Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever
- Psalms 106:1
