Tips and Tricks

  • Use fresh, ripe Northwest Cherries for the best flavor.

    • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or the oven before serving.

Variations

  • Dairy-Free Option: Replace the unsalted butter or ghee in the gluten-free cobbler topping with coconut oil or any other plant-based butter of your choice. Ensure it is at room temperature to mimic the consistency of butter for easy blending.
  • Add in extra fruits with the cherries, like peaches, blueberries, or strawberries.
  • For a twist, add a sprinkle of almond slivers on top before baking for added texture and flavor.
