It's "Rednesday"!

Cherry - Cranberry Topsy Turvy Cobbler for "Rednesday"

Cherry - Cranberry Topsy Turvy Cobbler

1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. flour
3/4 c. milk
1 Tbsp. baking powder
Nuts, optional
1 can of fruit pie filling of choice
1/2 - 1 c. dried cranberries

Melt butter in large casserole dish in a 325 degree oven. Mix batter ingredients together and pour over melted butter. Mix pie filling and cranberries in a medium size bowl. Pour on top of batter. Sprinkle with a little more sugar and if you like, cinnamon and nuts. Bake for about 45 minutes. Serve with Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream.

This is one of my childhood recipes. By the time I was nine I could whip this up with ease. I always thought it was so "modern" until I found almost the same identical recipe in my husband's grandmother's recipe file. It's so good. The cranberries were my idea and I love the tartness it adds.

This was fun, Sue. Your It's a Very Cherry World  blog is great!! It was a challenge for me to look for red in my home, but then remembered I had just made this cobbler. Perfect timing!
