Trying to find good fresh berries in the grocery store has been a challenge lately. I'm pretty sure people are looking at me funny as I stand there in the store opening the berry boxes and flipping them over to look at the bottom of the container.
The other day I swear I looked at every single box before picking two semi-decent boxes of strawberries, so I could make more Strawberry Nutella Twists.
Is it too much to ask for nice red berries without mold and slime? I mean, berries are not cheap, so I do not want to throw half of them away when I get home! Ok, rant over!
Years ago when we lived in Indiana I used to take our kids to pick strawberries in May. There is nothing quite like a fresh warm berry right from the field. Just ask my kids. They always ate their weight in berries.
Even though we have lived in Florida for 3 years, I still have not adjusted to strawberry season being so early here. If you want to pick fresh strawberries to make Homemade Strawberry Pie Filling, you have to go in March.
The other day I had a craving for fresh strawberry cobbler. Cobblers really are the best. Ooey, gooey fruit with biscuits that have a crisp top layer and a soft, fluffy underside is so good!!!
To take it up another notch I sprinkled the top of the biscuit dough with cinnamon sugar. I remembered how good these Easy Cinnamon Sugar Waffles were, so I wanted to add that crunch to the cobbler.
The cinnamon sugar topping made it taste like a snickerdoodle cobbler. Oh, yeah!
How to make Strawberry Cobbler:
- Combine diced strawberries and sugar in a saucepan. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the juices to come out.
- Add cornstarch and a pinch of salt and heat over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Cook 1 minute. Pour into greased pan.
- Mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl.
- Add cold butter and cut in until you have small crumbs.
- Pour in heavy cream and mix with a fork until a soft dough forms.
- Drop by spoonfuls over the hot strawberry filling.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake.
PRO TIP: Want to save time? 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. But it also reheats well and makes a very tasty breakfast. At least that's what our oldest son tells me. Hey, it's fruit and dairy, right?
