Another cobbler this week for Tuesdays with Dorie, this time a Cherry Rhubarb one, picked by Amanda from Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake. The recipe for this cobbler can be found in Dorie's Baking or on Amanda's blog.
I had never worked with rhubarb before although we have it in abundance at the moment. Cherries is a different story, we all love them! I pitted them with a chopstick, a trick I read about in the Question and Problem section on the TWD site. It worked great so no need to buy a cherry pitter for this cobbler.
The top differs from the mixed berry cobler, which has a rolled top, this one has little biscuits floating around in the fruit mixture.
How did we like this one? Well to be short we didn't, the biscuit was the best part, the fruit we didn't care for, the rhubarb was overpowering and the taste of the cherries was lost. I think we just stick to fresh cherries next time.
I might try this one with different fruit in the future, apples could be nice.
