It was a sweet dish comprised of cherries and some thickening agent (suspect the cook used commercial pie filling ... but I can not be certain of that), with a semi-stirred in mixture of bulgar wheat, sugar, cinnamon, and had lemon juice.  I suspect the bulgar wheat mixture had little ro no shortning or eggs (didn't hang togeather well).  For all the world it resembled cobbler made with bugar wheat instead of wheat flour or oats.Any road, it was really yummy ... and I dont usually enjoy cherries all that much.  anyone ever seen/heard of/ enjoyed/made something like this?
