Recently, I bought a huge warehouse sized container of strawberries that turned out to be a little on the tart side. Not so great for snacking, but perfect for baking! I thought it would be fun to make a Strawberry Cobbler using my Grandma Bea’s cobbler recipe. Strawberry Cobbler is the perfect summertime treat, especially served warm with a scoop of melty vanilla ice cream on top.
I know Grandma Bea would have loved it! She passed away a few weeks ago, shortly after her 102nd birthday. She really got a kick out of my blueberry cobbler post, and loved all the comments. Thank you to all who commented and shared her recipe!
