Tuesdays with Dorie-Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

Some desserts just aren’t photogenic, even though the taste may be phenomenal. This cherry rhubarb cobbler is a case in point. I almost rolled the dough out to press in the pan as we did for the mixed berry cobbler instead of rolling the dough into balls as the recipe suggested.. With my family visiting this week, I haven’t had a lot of time to think of creative substitutions, so stayed with the exact recipe except I didn’t use the whole wheat flour in the topping.. As it turned out, the cobbler was wonderful. The rhubarb and cherries made a tangy sweet combination and the ground ginger added an oriental touch to the dessert. The cherry pitter in the photo above is a great little gadget to have around.My post is short this Tuesdays with Dorie edition. Check out all the other cherry rhubarb cobblers on the TWD site. Thanks to Amanda of sprinkles on a cupcake for choosing the Cherry Rhubarb.

    I want a cherry pitter! I am so jealous. I guess the stores around here figure cherry season is too short to carry them. Your cobbler looks delish, I think it was probably better without the whole wheat flour.

    You’ve managed to make your cobbler look photogenic. And I’m with you; my cherry pitter is one of my (new) favorite must-have kitchen tools. Wonderful for olives too.

    Not photogenic? I’d call that first pic with the cherries decidedly photogenic. And the cobbler looks pretty darned tasty too!

    I’m going have to go ahead and disagree with you, lady. I think your cobbler photographed beautifully. Nice job!

    I agree that this was a hard one to take a good photo of, but I think you did a really good job. The most photogenic bit was the dish a pitted cherries and diced rhubarb, but I forgot to get the photo.
