1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 c. heavy cream
4 (15 1/4 oz.) cans almond flavored apricot halves,
using almond flavoring or amaretto to taste if pre-flavored apricots are unavailable.
1 jar drained maraschino cherries without stems

Pour melted butter into 12x8 inch baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, mixing well. Stir in cream, mixing just until combined. Pour the undrained apricots and cherries over the batter but do not stir them into batter. For extra sweetness, sprinkle about 1 tsp. of sugar over the top. Bake in preheated 375 F. oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Most delicious if served warm.
Note: Put a liner of heavy foil or a baking sheet on shelf below the one with the cobbler, as it is prone to bubbling over.
