Go Back


There isn't much better than a fresh fruit cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream, sitting on the back porch in the middle of summertime! This dessert is a childhood favorite and I decided to jazz it up a little bit for all of the summer cookouts! I hope y'all enjoy!
Servings 6 people


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • splash of orange juice
  • 2-3 TBSP bourbon
  • 1 10" cast iron skillet
  • 2 TBSP sugar (set aside)


  • Preheat your recteq to 350 degrees. While the grill is preheating, add your skillet with 1 stick of butter to let it start melting.
  • Mix flour, sugar, milk & baking powder together to create batter & pour into the skillet
  • Mix together the cherry pie filling, cinnamon, salt, orange juice and bourbon
  • Spoon the fruit mixture into the batter (do not mix)
  • Cook on your recteq for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown
  • As soon as you take the cobbler off of the grill, sprinkle with sugar
  • ENJOY!


If you do not have a recteq, you can bake this in your oven at the same temperature. You can also leave out the bourbon if you'd like. I like to use this recipe all year round and use the fruits that are in season.
substitutions : if using fresh fruit, you will want to use 2 cups of fruit tossed with 1 cup of sugar
