National Cherry Cobbler Day Date in the current year: May 17, 2024

National Cherry Cobbler Day May 17 is National Cherry Cobbler Day. This fruit pie deserves its own holiday, and today is a perfect day to bake a cherry cobbler to celebrate with friends and family.

Cobblers appeared in the USA in the 19th century, when English settlers brought their recipes. They didn't have the right equipment to make the same dishes as in Great Britain, so many of the recipes had to be adapted. This is when the first cobblers appeared; they were an adaptation of suet pudding. Settlers had to improvise and added uncooked dumplings or biscuits on top of the fruit filling.

For a long time cobbler wasn't considered an appropriate dish for a party or to serve to guests. But everything changes, and today cherry cobbler is one of America's favorites. You can bake cherry cobbler with the bottom crust or with the top layer only. Use canned, frozen or pitted fresh cherries to make the best cobbler. Add some vanilla or almond extract, lemon zest and nuts to make the filling of your cherry cobbler even better!
