  1. I’ve been looking for a really good, quick fruit cobbler using frozen fruit and this is it! I absolutely LOVE “” — keeps re-booting my stale repertoire of meal ideas and is greatly appreciated! (I did add almond extract because I adore almond and cherry anything.)5 stars

    1. can you make this with no bake gram cracker crust and do you have any recipes with almond paste?? thank you Julie

      1. We have never tried using a graham cracker crust with this recipe, Julie. Cobbler usually consists of a batter/biscuit/dough filling. If you’re looking for a cherry dessert with a graham cracker crust, try our Cherry Cheesecake recipe!

  2. Trying this today though no cherries probably peaches. Freezing directions redundant in this household. Few leftovers after breakfast next day.
