Strawberries are definitely one of our favorite fruits to buy when they are in season. We love using them in a strawberry smoothie bowl, in homemade strawberry pie filling, or in a fresh strawberry cobbler.
Cobblers really are the best summer dessert. Who can resist a sweet hot fruit filling topped with fluffy cinnamon and sugar biscuits and vanilla ice cream?

How to Make Strawberry Cobbler
Get ready to make this easy strawberry cobbler recipe in a few simple steps.
- Combine diced strawberries and sugar in a saucepan. Let sit for a few minutes to macerate and let the juices out.
- Add cornstarch and a pinch of salt to the berries. Heat over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for one minute. Spoon the strawberries into a greased casserole dish.
- Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
- Add cold butter and cut in with a fork or a pastry blender until you have small crumbs.
- Pour in the heavy cream and gently mix with a fork until a soft dough forms.
- Drop the biscuit dough by spoonfuls over the hot strawberry mixture.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake until golden brown and bubbly.
- Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream.
BRUCREW TIP: Use a can of strawberry pie filling instead of making the strawberry filling.
This strawberry cobbler is best served fresh out of the oven with a big scoop of ice cream.
Store leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Make sure it is cooled completely before covering it.
Reheat single servings in the microwave for 30 seconds or until hot.
Tips and Tricks
- Butter the sides and bottom of the pan, so the filling and biscuits do not stick.
- Free free to make this cobbler with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or peaches.
- Do not over mix the biscuit dough. You want them to be light and fluffy.
- Place a baking sheet on the oven rack under the cobbler as it bakes. This way it can catch the filling if it bubbles over the edges.
- Serve the hot strawberry cobbler with different ice creams. Two of our favorites are this homemade strawberry ice cream and a chocolate chip ice cream.
What is the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?
A fruit cobbler is usually topped with a soft batter or biscuits. Crisps have a crispy streusel or crumb topping.
Can you use frozen strawberries?
Fresh strawberries really are best because the frozen berries will have more juices in them. If you need to use frozen strawberries, thaw and drain the juices very well before stirring the sugar into them.

Anna @ Anna Can Do It!
I have bad luck with strawberries too, since the Sun hardly ever showed itself in the last few weeks, all my strawberries are sour and so, so small... 🙁
But this cobbler looks amazing, I can almost taste it! The recipe looks easy, so I think I'll give it a try! - Love, Anna

Yum, nothing like cooked fruits and ice cream. The biscuits on top look great and I love how easy this looks, confession I've never had a cobbler !
Medha @ Whisk & Shout
This cobbler looks delicious- I can't wait till I can pick strawberries at the local farm 🙂
Are you near Lubbock? It's a little late, but the South Plains Food Bank has a farm with greenhouse where they grow strawberries. I was there in the end of April and could not tell if they had finished harvesting. They sell their produce as well as banking it. Might be worth a look as it is hard to find good berries!
Oh, my goodness! Yes, I live in Lubbock. I will have to remember this place for next spring when I'm looking for berries!!! Thank you for the tip!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
I've had the worst luck with berries lately, getting home and finding the middle ones covered in fuzz 🙁 Or buying them for breakfast and the next morning they are already bad. So frustrating!! This cobbler looks wonderful and makes me wish I still had my strawberry garden 🙂
