Skillet Cranberry Sauce Cobbler

Skillet Cranberry Sauce Cobbler

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?!

Ours was great – we got to spend time with family and talk to family on the phone, we ate a couple of delicious meals together, and it ended with some snuggling on the couch and a bowl of ice cream.  I love what Casey said in her post yesterday about having gratitude each and every day for the blessings in our lives, and I can honestly say the same thing:  I look at life, the ups and downs and everything in between, and I am so very thankful for it all.  God is so very very good!

So food.  How was the food?  And who has massive amounts of leftovers that they’re just dying to fancy up?  We don’t have leftovers, but I finally figured out something to do with the cranberries I started hoarding in my freezer a few weeks ago:  cobbler!  I have always been a fan of sweet-tart desserts (not to be confused with the candy – gross!), and this is definitely that.  Nate though?  Not a fan.  If he’s having dessert he wants sweet all the way.

 

Maybe that’s why he married me!  Har. Har. Har.

 

Truly though, this is a fantastic way to use up cranberries or already made cranberry sauce.  You have the sweet-tart from the sauce buried under some phenomenally easy vanilla bean spiced biscuits, and if you top the whole thing with some ice cream?  YES.  So good.
