I found myself in quite the situation yesterday…there were a ton of strawberries in my refrigerator that I had to use.. I had planned on making a strawberry dessert for Easter, but due to some family stuff I didn’t get too. Now I had to figure out something yummy to make with them. Cobbler is was!
Was craving cobbler…
As the weather gets warmer, I do live in southeast Texas so we are warming up down here, all I want are fruit desserts and cobbler is always at the top of the list. Growing up peach cobbler or blackberry cobbler were my favorites but once when I was in college I had strawberry cobbler and I loved it…so I decided to try it.
I have to say this cobbler was way better then what I had in college…this is going to be on my summer dessert list for sure.
The berries…OH THE BERRIES
The strawberries I had were not too big so I just cut them in half. I wanted to make sure that they didn’t cook down all the way while baking. If your berries are big then you might want to cut them into thirds or even quarters.
You could add in some blueberries, blackberries or peaches to this cobbler if you wanted. I went with all strawberries because that is what I had but for the 4th of July I am going to add in some additional berries for a red, white and blue dessert.
THE CRUST (isn’t that why you eat cobbler?)
I am all about the crust when it comes to cobbler. Normally I like a double layer crust, but for this cobbler I decided to go with a biscuit type crust. The beauty of the biscuit crust is that is comes together super quick and there is no rolling involved.
You mix it all in one bowl (I used the same one as I did for the strawberries) and then you just spread it over the berries. The dough will be pretty sticky so just be aware that it can get a little messy but it is so worth it! I mean look how pretty it turned out!!
If you wanted to use a pie crust and make a double crust cobbler this crust would be so good!
You now you want to make it
It is time for some cobbler
Celebrate Spring with this Strawberry Cobbler. You will love it…I promise!!
