Strawberry Cobbler

Strawberry Cobbler

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!

  2. Slice strawberries, mix in lemon juice and set aside.
  3. Add sugar, flour, baking powder and salt to a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine dry ingredients.
