An easy Strawberry Cobbler recipe using fresh strawberries. Serve this with ice cream for a fantastic summer dessert.
Last week my grocery store had 2 lb containers of fresh strawberries at a ridiculously low price. The strawberries were hugh and a beautiful deep color of red, they needed to be made into a dessert that would show off their color as well as flavor.
We start the recipe by washing , hulling and slicing the strawberries. I sliced my berries about a quarter of an inch thick. I wanted the berries to be sliced thick enough so they would still have some form after the berries were baked.
After the berries were sliced it was time to make the sauce. The sauce consists of three ingredients…lemon juice,cornstarch and sugar. These three ingredients are put into a saucepan and cooked until thick. The strawberries are added to the pan and folded gently to coat them.
I placed the berries into a 9 inch buttered baking dish, dotted the top of the berries with butter and moved on to making the topping. I mean seriously, how easy is this so far huh?
The topping consists of flour,sugar,baking powder, salt and cold butter. Sift the dry ingredients together, cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients until you have large crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the top of the berries and bake.
I love recipes that are easy to make and yield fantastic results. And let’s not forget the versatility! Switch the strawberries out for blueberries or raspberries!
This is summer’s bounty at it’s best! Serve this delicious treat with vanilla ice cream or cream and watch the smile’s appear. Strawberry Cobbler, easy and delicious, it doesn’t get any better than that, ENJOY!
