STRAWBERRY COBBLER

Strawberry Cobbler~A delicious cobbler made with fresh strawberries crowned with a cakey topping that has a lovely hint of lemon flavor. Easy and quick to put together.

Is there anything better than spring and summer fruit?

There’s not a variety of this seasonal fresh fruit that I don’t absolutely love!

Strawberries are the first of these treasures to hit the streets.

As soon as those cute little baskets overflowing with those beautiful red berries show up at the local farm stands, I start buying, buying, buying! Believe it or not, even in busy, urban Southern California, we still have a few farm stands left.

I love to eat them fresh out of the carton, generally unwashed, and really only seconds after I’ve paid for them. I don’t get home, heck I don’t even make it to the car before I have half of the carton devoured. Really, there are few things as glorious, in my book, as juicy, fresh, handpicked, farm stand strawberries.

As to the surviving berries, if there are any, they’re headed to my kitchen to make strawberry desserts!

This yummy fresh Strawberry Cobbler is pure comfort food. It’s quick and easy to put together and the warm, cooked strawberries with the fabulous topping is absolutely divine.
