Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Oh, I love cherry season, especially when we get to pick our own cherries, from our own tree! What a treat!  Our little cherry tree produced a ton this year and we quickly picked them up before the birds got to them.  I also wanted to make something special out of them and I made this yummy, beautiful, delicious cobbler.  Of course, it goes perfect with some vanilla ice cream.  YUM!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
For filling:
-6 cups tart cherries, pitted and halved
-1 cup sugar
-1/4 cup water
-4 tsp cornstarch
For batter:
-1 cup flour
-1/4 cup sugar
-2 Tbs brown sugar
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-3 Tbs unsalted butter, at room temperature
-1 egg
-3 Tbs milk
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a saucepan, combine all filling ingredients.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbling and thickened.  Pour mixture into 8x8 square baking dish.
Meanwhile, place all batter ingredients in food processor.  Process until mixture becomes a thick batter (you might have to use a spoon to scoop ingredients off the sides, in the process).
Pour batter on top of cherry mixture.  Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown on top and filling is bubbly.
Let it sit for about 10 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream on top.  Enjoy!
