Strawberry Cobbler - TSLC

This Strawberry Cobbler will become a favorite dessert recipe.  It is quick and easy to make and one your family and guests will love.  It reminds me of the old-time cobblers our grandmothers used to make.

4 cups fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

3 tablespoons lemon juice

3 tablespoons water

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Drop or 2 of red food coloring (Optional)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon white granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons or 1/2 stick or 1/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup milk


Wash and hull your strawberries and set aside.  Combine the lemon juice, water, 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch in a pot and cook on medium heat until thickens like a sauce. (This only takes a couple minutes once it is hot).  Remove from stove, stir in food coloring and pour over strawberries. Stir to coat the berries.   Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and pour in berries and sauce.  Combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder and salt.  Mix well with wire whisk.  Pour in melted butter and milk. Mix with a spoon and drop by tablespoons on top of berries in casserole dish.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes until topping is cooked. Can brown top under broiler for a minute or two if you want it brown on top.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Top with whipped cream or ice cream before serving.  Enjoy!

Note:  You could also make this using strawberry pie filling or make it using other fresh fruits.
