Easy Magic Lemon Cobbler Recipe: The Perfect Lemon Dessert by Donna John
My dad loves lemon meringue pie. But not having perfected my meringue skills yet, this was the lemon dessert recipe to make for him. It was had a short list of simple ingredients, easy prep the creamy, lemony taste you'd think of with a lemon meringue pie – it cobbler form!
This easy magic lemon cobbler recipe is simply delicious, without my weepy meringue. The magic is that it doesn't require stirring, but turns into a luscious cobbler with very little effort. What's not to love about that?
To make the creamy lemon cobbler, melt butter in a baking dish. While it melts, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and granulated sugar. Add the buttermilk, vanilla extract and lemon extract and pour the mixture over the melted butter. Do not stir! Next comes dollops of the lemon pie filling. Again do not stir! Bake the lemon cobber in the oven for about 50 minutes or until it begins to get light brown.
Serve this lemon cobbler for dessert warm or cold. You can add whipped cream or even a little vanilla ice cream if serving warm. This would be a great lemony dessert for your Easter table.
