It's July. The air is hot, relaxed attitudes are rampant and cherries are literally falling off the trees!
This is all great news for me. 1. I love the month of July, there is just something so fun and playful about it! 2. The heat is my best friend - gotta get it while I can – warm temps don’t last long up here in my neck of the woods! 3. I am without a doubt addicted/obsessed with cherries.
It was not long ago that I said I did not like cherries. I know, the horror, right? Actually, it was two summers ago when I realized that cherries are one of the most delicious things summer has to offer.
I was spending the summer up in Mt. Hood, Oregon with my family when my dad brought home a basket full of fresh Oregon cherries. You know what I actually said? “Why did you buy cherries? I hate cherries.” Seriously, could I be more selfish? Anyway, the point is, I ended up eating almost all of the cherries myself. When everyone asked what happened to them, I had no way of concealing my cherry binge, as my fingers were stained a pretty shade of reddish purple. And so it became official: I loved cherries, and I continued to devour them the rest of the summer.
It was not until this summer, though, that I actually began cooking and baking with them. So, today I am sharing a quick, simple and easy cherry cobbler with the most delicious honey butter vanilla bean biscuits. I mean, come on, doesn’t that sound delicious?!?!
The cherry filling gets spiked with a little bourbon, which is clearly awesome, and the biscuits get a whole lot of love from some honey, vanilla beans and a hefty amount of butter. YUMMERS.
I promise you guys, this is going to be your go-to dessert until the last of the cherries have disappeared from our markets. And when that happens, don’t be sad, it just means it’s time to swap out those cherries for crisp fall apples!
