This is going to be another short and sweet Tuesdays with Dorie post as the only word that comes to mind when I think of that Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler is "uninspiring".
I was quite disappointed as I love cherries, I love rhubarb but the two together just didn't do it for me. Even Martin who usually loves fruit desserts like this just said it was good but ordinary.
I had really high hopes because as I said, I love all the ingredients separately and everything came together really easily. Plus it's a really beautiful dessert, the fruit filling turns a gorgeous red, and I had sprinkled some coarse sugar on top of the dumplings so they were really shiny and crunchy.
But once I scooped out a piece it was a whole different story. I found the filling was too soupy, the dough was bland and the fruit didn't complement each other at all, in my opinion. I'm not being negative or anything, but I couldn't just tell you guys this was a fabulous dessert and you should all try it right away. I'm not saying you shouldn't either though as I'm sure others in the group really liked it or tweaked it to their liking.
So should you be curious about it visit Amanda at Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake who chose this week's recipe. Now I'm off to visit the other members and see what they all thought of this cobbler!
