We love the good cherry picker as much as the next and, on May 17th every year, we celebrate National Cherry Picking Day! For the uninitiated, cherry cobbler is a baked dessert made with a rich cherry filling and a cookie dough crust. Cherry cobbler first appeared in the 19th century when bakers had to modify recipes due to scarcity of ingredients. You could say that the cherry pie is a cooler version of the traditional cherry pie!

History of National Cherry Cobbler Day

It is said that cherry wine utensils originated in the first colonies of Anglo-American and came about due to a lack of proper cooking ingredients and equipment. The British have missed out on their traditional suet and switched to baking cherry cobblers. This recipe has been improvised over the years and today cookie dough is usually made from oats (instead of flour) and topped with whipped cream or whipped cream!

What began as a recipe of scarcity has now become a most beloved dessert, though, it is a mystery how it got its name. Some argue that the word 'cobbler' evolved from 'cobeler,' which is a type of wooden bowl used for cooking in the old days. Meanwhile, some people believe that National Cherry Cobbler Day may be a result of the fact that the dessert is similar to a pebble! Whatever the reason for National Cherry Cobbler Day is, National Cherry Cobbler Day is a favorite day for many dessert lovers in the world.

The origin of the cobbler dates back to the early 19th century and it has its roots in European and American cuisine. In addition to cherries, cobbler can also be made from apples, apricots, and plums. Spices such as cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, or nutmeg are also often used in small amounts for flavor.
