The "cobbled" or bumpy appearance of the rich biscuit topping gives this favorite fruit dessert its unique name.


Makes 8 servings


1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar, divided
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 package (16 ounces) frozen unsweetened cherries, thawed and drained
