HOW TO MAKE THIS STRAWBERRY COBBLER RECIPE

STEP ONE: To start, preheat oven to 375°F and butter a glass 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Set it aside.

PRO TIP: Rinse and air dry the strawberries before adding them to the cobbler.

STEP TWO: Next, combine the strawberries, sugar, tapioca, and lemon juice. Stir the ingredients together and spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish. 

PRO TIP: Use instant tapioca to thicken the cobbler.

STEP THREE: In a separate bowl, prepare the strawberry cobbler topping. To do this, combine flour, baking powder, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Next, cut cold butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry blender until the mixture forms small, pea-sized pieces.

PRO TIP: Make sure your butter is really cold! Take it out of the fridge right before you begin this process.

STEP FOUR: Pour heavy cream into the topping mixture and stir together until it’s combined.

STEP SIX: Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the cobbler if desired.

STEP SEVEN: Bake your cobbler in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes until the strawberry filling is bubbling, not just around the edge, but in the center as well. The topping should be browned and baked through.

STEP EIGHT: You’re ready to serve! Serve your sweet cobbler warm with a side of ice cream.

HOW TO SERVE

Serve this easy strawberry cobbler recipe warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and a spoonful of homemade whipped cream. Add a nice cold drink such as our iced tea, raspberry iced tea, sweet peach iced tea, or our southern strawberry sweet tea to wash it all down.
