Fresh Strawberry Cobbler

A friend served this recipe many years ago at our quilt group get together. I just found it again and have made it with great success. A different way to use fresh strawberries!!

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1 Large Egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/4 cups flour I use King Arthur or Pillsbury Unbleached)

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, cut in half lengthwise


  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup(1/2 stick) butter

1/2 pint wipping cream, whipped

Beat 1/4 cup softened butterat medium speed with an electric mixer; gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating well. Add egg and vanilla extract, mixing well. Combine 1 1/4 cups flour,baking powder, and salt, add to butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Spoon into a greased 8 inch square baking dish. Arrange strawberries on top, cut side down. For topping, combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar; cut in chilled 1/4 cup butter with a pastry blender until crumbly( I use my Cuisinart food processor for this, works beautifully!!) Sprinkle over strawberries. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm with whipped cream, could use vanilla ice cream too. this recipe doubles well. Just use a 9x13 pan instead. 8 servings
