Claire Makes Cherry Cobbler | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 19 July 2019
  • Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes cherry cobbler. Why choose between shortcakes and cobbler when you can have one dessert that combines the best of both? The lemony cherry filling is topped with shortcake-inspired cream biscuits (so tender, so light!) that soak up all of those fruit juices without getting soggy.

    Claire is beautiful but I really wish she would dye the gray out of her hair. She's too young and pretty to be going gray.

      Re: The poland springs bottle, the reason it's so flimsy is because Poland Springs committed to using 1/3 the plastic of a normal water bottle like 10 years ago, and they've also fully committed to only using recycled plastic for their still water bottles by 2020. So like, not ideal, but as far as single use plastic water bottles are concerned you could definitely do worse.

        I saw this video and went right out and bough fresh cherries. Spent the afternoon making this beautiful desert and it is great. Tried to send pictures for you all but can not figure that one out yet. I do have to say, if you are going to comment, please make the recipe and let others know how it is rather then commit on a tee shirt and other stuff. Claire, thank you, this is a great recipe and to others, please follow recipe exactly (I did have to put butter and pastry in freezer off and on as it has been so hot in CA) took longer then anticipated but so lovely. Will definitely have some for breakfast too. Thank you

          side note: pick a nice lemon for zest and after zesting pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to get as much juice out as possible. 1 lemon rendered me all the zest and juice for recipe.

                Would there be any major modifications for making this with peaches? I’m in the south and peaches are ripe! Also my granddaddy LOVES peach cobbler. This would make his day if it worked well with peaches 😊

                  Mollie Taylor I don’t think they’re would be any changes besides less lemon zest maybe, I believe on BA’s website they have a peach version but I’m not 110% sure

                  Great video and recipe. I used blueberries and the lemon juice made the berries too acidic so the 2nd time I made it, I left out the juice and it was PERFECT!

                              For people that don’t have a biscuit cutter or any ring like cutting utensils, the shape of the biscuit doesn’t have to be a circle; squares, diamonds, or any other shape would be fine

                              A good way to pit cherries I learned while making this is to like Claire said use a pairing knife then twist 1 half off and use a vegetable peeler with the trowel like end to kind of scoop/cut the pit out. takes a lil time but once you get in the motion of it it becomes pretty easy and u can do a cherry in like 7 seconds

                                    I made a cherry cobbler a few weeks ago inspired by this video :) I went with another recipe because I was on a budget (and still went way over that budget even with what I did get...) but I'm so happy you gave me the idea for it. My family enjoyed it and YES, it makes a great breakfast! I'm an adult, damnit, I eat what I want for breakfast :) Also...I actually found it was best on its own without ice cream. I actually now have the freezer-burned ice cream still left because I just liked the cobbler without extras.

                                    Since I still have almost all the ingredients except flour and a fruit, I'm probably going to make another. If blueberries are in, I might choose that. Or peaches. Or pears. So many choices and that's why I'm now in love with this dessert. It was the most Betty Crocker kind of thing I've ever done but it was fun and having my mom and brother enjoy it was a nice ego flex, lol.

                                          So I made this desert, followed the recipe to a t and it’s phenomenal. I will definitely make it again and I will decrease the amount of sugar next time though. BA you are the best. Love it!

                                              I assume these are sweet cherries, but wouldn't it work better with sour cherries (as used in cherry pies)? Or is the lemon juice the equalizer?

I have generally big warm to hot man hands that have never made a successful biscuit or pie dough so I was inspired by a friend's awesome dessert and stepped away from my comfort zone. I just tried to make the biscuits that is all. Anyone can make the filling right? I made the biscuits and they were great. Will make the whole cobbler this weekend
