We know what you’re thinking.
WHAT?! Cobbler in a slow cooker? I didn’t know the Hot Logic could make desserts!
Yes, it’s true: Hot Logic’s patented conductive heating technology has freed pastries from the conventional oven.
Cobblers and pies require slow cooking, so these are perfect for the Hot Logic. Not to mention they make these sometimes-finicky desserts nearly foolproof, since you don’t have to worry about burning your pastry – it will simply bump down to a hygienic temperature when it’s fully cooked.
This cobbler recipe is for tart cherries, but you could easily use any other fruit instead. For fleshy fruits like apples and peaches, just leave out the tapioca.
Pour the filling in your 8×6 sealable container, then top with your crust. Feel free to get fancy – make stars, shapes, lattices – for the 4th of July, you can even make flag stripes and top with blueberry and whipped cream stars before serving!
Allow to cook until the red light comes on, then either take it out or leave it in to serve it warm!
For the filling:
4 cups tart pitted cherries (frozen or fresh)
2/3 cup sugar
1 tblsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
2 tblsp crushed / instant tapioca (reduce to 1 if using fresh cherries)
1 heaping tblsp flour
For the crust:
1/2 stick butter (salted)
1/2 cup flour
1 egg yolk
1 tsp lemon juice
Cut the flour into the butter using a fork, pastry cutter or food processor. Once the consistency of breadcrumbs, slowly add:
1/8 cup cold water
Don’t pour the water in all at once – mix as you add it, and once the dough adheres to itself and begins to become sticky, stop.
Knead the dough til smooth, then roll out to 1/8 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into strips or shapes and interlace over the top of the filling, being sure to leave holes which show through to the cherries.
