Okay...better late then never

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

2/3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups pitted fresh tart cherries
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400°. Blend 1 1/4 cups sugar, cornstarch, cherries, and almond extract in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Continue to boil and stir for 1 minute. Pour fruit mixture into an ungreased 2-quart casserole. Place in oven while preparing dough.
Measure flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add butter and milk. Cut butter in several times then stir until dough forms a ball. Drop dough in about 6 spoonfuls onto hot fruit. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Serve warm with cream, if desired, or cool slightly and serve with vanilla ice cream.

Num! Cherries! And this recipe is very, very easy. Enjoy!

Cherry Clafouti

4 cups cherries
5 tablespoons sugar
2 c light cream
3 eggs
1/4 c flour
pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
icing sugar

Butter a 2 quart shallow baking dish and sprinkle with sugar. Blend cream, eggs, flour and salt for 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients & vanilla; blend. Put cherries & their juice (the recipe doesn't specify how much juice and I can't remember - err on the low side to avoid a soggy result) in dish, pour egg mixture over. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until well puffed and golden. Serve barely warm, spinkled with icing sugar.
