On my dad’s recent visit I wanted to make a strawberry pie for him since that’s his favorite, but due to lack of time I found this little recipe. It’s like a apple crumble, but strawberries. He’s never heard of using strawberries so that’s a winner in my book since he’s seen a lot of things. It tasted really good. I forgot to get a plated picture which we topped the cobbler with vanilla ice cream, sorry.
Fresh Strawberry Cobbler
(Adapted from Chocolate, Chocolate and More)
4-5 cups fresh strawberries, sliced in quarters
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
4 teaspoons cold water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, softened
Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium saucepan. Let sit for 30 minutes with no heat.
When time is up, stir strawberries and sugar then turn heat to medium for about 5 minutes. Combine cornstarch and cold water, making sure cornstarch is completely dissolved.
Add cornstarch mixture to strawberries. Continue to heat until strawberries start to boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
Make the topping-combine remaining ingredients using a pastry blender, until all combined and mixture is crumbly.
Spoon strawberries into 4 small ramekins, top with crumb mixture. Place ramekins on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.) Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, until bubbly. Let sit 10 minutes before serving warm.
