Make this Strawberry Cobbler in the spring with fresh from the farm berries, or any time of year with frozen ones
I always know that it’s really, truly Spring when I start seeing road-side signs for U-Pick strawberry patches. It just makes my day to see those little signs because, first, they usually mean cold weather is gone for a while and, second, all that wonderful spring and summer produce is about to start flooding the markets!
I just adore fresh produce straight from the farm. It’s so completely different from the things that have been trucked in from who knows where and stored in a cold, dark place until ready to sell. You never know how long that tomato or those oranges have been around. It could be weeks.
A couple of weekends ago, BeeBop and I made a Saturday morning trip to one of our favorite produce markets specifically to get their fresh strawberries. They pick them every morning so you know what you’re buying has just come from the field. I grabbed a bunch of them, froze most to use later, and made this delicious cobbler with the rest.
This strawberry cobbler is fantastic when fresh berries are just coming to market, but it’s also a great reminder of summertime when you make it in the dead of winter with some of the berries you put away in the freezer! Most people like their cobbler with a little ice cream or whipped cream, but I’ve always preferred mine just drizzled with a bit of heavy cream or half and half. Yum!
How to Make Strawberry Cobbler
Before you get started, go ahead and preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Make the cobbler topping first. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter, cut into big chunks, and then cut it into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or a fork. Just work it in until the mixture looks crumbly. Combine the egg and milk and, using a fork, stir the mixture into the dry ingredients just until they become moistened. Set the topping aside until needed.
Prepare the cobbler filling. Stir together the sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Stir in the water and cook while stirring over medium-high heat until thick and bubbly. Add the strawberries. Then bring the mixture back to a bubble, and cook until thickened – about 5 minutes. Stir in the vanilla.
Pour the filling into a 2-quart casserole dish. Drop the topping by heaping spoonfuls onto the hot strawberry filling. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake about 25 minutes or until the topping is browned. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
