Prep Time 20minutes
Cook Time 25minutes
Total Time 45minutes
FOR THE PIE CRUST:
4 1/2TBScold butter cut into chunks
FOR THE CHERRY FILLING:
2 1/2cupsfresh or thawed frozen tart cherries
4tspcane or granulated sugar
1beaten egg for egg wash
Coarse sugar for decoratingI used cane sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Add all the pie crust ingredients except the water into a food processor and pulse a few times until combined. Add the water, and pulse a few more times until a crumbly dough forms. Add a bit more or less water as needed. Form the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap to refrigerate while you make the filling.
Gently mix together all the filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. Divide the mixture evenly between two ramekins sprayed with non-stick spray (mine were 6 ounce ramekins). Set aside.
Roll the pie dough out to about 1/4 inch on a lightly floured surface. Cut snowflakes out using a cookie cutter or another shape of your choice. Repeat until all dough is used.
Brush the snowflakes with egg wash and arrange a few on top of the cherry mixture in each ramekin. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Add the rest of the snowflakes to a baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake the cherry cobblers for about 25-27 minutes, or until the cherry mixture is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Bake the remaining snowflakes for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and the extra snowflakes!
