A fellow blogger had posted about strawberry cobbler recently and I have to admit, although I love strawberries I wasn’t sure. I’m such an apple crisp lover, that sometimes cobbler is hard for me to get on board with. I made a peach version before and it was fantastic, so I’m not sure why I was hesitant. I had this cobbler on my mind, so for Father’s Day, I decided to just do it. So I made this lovely little dessert and oh my god (in my mind I read this in the voice of Chandler from Friends). I ate my words, and lots of cobbler. It was delicious. It’s like warm strawberry shortcake. The cinnamon hinted biscuit on top is so tasty. The warm strawberry layer is almost jam like with a hint or tartness. We added ice cream to each serving and it did not disappoint. Even my niece who is a little picky when it comes to food, enjoyed it! #proudauntiemoment I love dessert, heck I made a blog about it, but sometimes the overly sweet can be too much. We all have limits, but this was just a home run. It’s also the perfect way to use up those strawberries. My only comment here is the recipe called for 3 cups of strawberries, and I would suggest bumping that up to 4 or 5. Mine cooked down quite a bit, and I would have liked more strawberries.
For the topping
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Add in the strawberries, corn starch and sugar. Mix to combine and set aside.
- To make the cobbler, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Using your fingers, work in the cold butter cubes until the mixture is crumbly.
- In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Add the wet mixture into the flour mixture and combine until a dough forms.
- Drop the dough mixture on top of the strawberry mixture and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the top is cooked through.
- Serve warm with ice cream!
