so, even though I was less then a fan of the last cobbler, I went ahead and tried this one. One, because I skipped out on blueberry pie and two because I love cherries. I made these into mini cobblers which meant I got to use my teeny cookie scoop to do the crust. Honestly, cookie scoops are a revelation. Run, don't walk to your nearest cooking supply store or online retailer and buy yourself many. You will not regret it. I used to like to mock Marta Stewart for her drawer of cookie scoops while secretly coveting it, but now I will stop mocking and merely outwardly covet it. I put it off getting one forever and am now shocked I lived without for so long. Much like the miracle that is DVR. Anyhow, back to the cobbler. I found this recipe more successful then the last Dorie cobbler. I guarded against being unhappy with the sweetness by upping the sugar in the dough. I found the whole wheat flour added nice texture and nuttyness to the crust, and although i was wary about the ginger, it was just what the fruit needed. I'm still not totally sold on cobblers, but I will in this instance thank Dorie for this one. Leftovers also made a lovely breakfast (only in theory since one would never eat dessert, even fruity dessert for breakfast).
