So, not that surprisingly, cherry cobbler is very similar to peach cobbler - a sort of bastard pie. Oddly though, recipes suggest baking the peach cobbler crust down, and cherry cobbler crust up. Thus is the way of the world, I suppose.
This recipe seems ridiculously easy to veganize, and when cherries come into season this summer I plan to try it out! (Don't forget to find organic cherries - their high sugar content and thin skin leads to excessive pesticide-ing in conventionally grown crops.)
