Watch me make this fresh strawberry cobbler from start to finish!
Strawberry season is here!!!! Ok maybe I’m almost a little bit late here in NC but either way now is the time to take advantage of all those fresh, juicy, sweet strawberries that are on sale. My husband got me a big container full of strawberries and immediately I started thinking about ways to use them. We ate our fair share of fresh strawberries, made a quick berry salad, froze some for smoothies and now it’s fresh strawberry cobbler time!!
Cobblers are the best desserts ever. That golden, crisp top layer, the fluffy underside, and then that sweet, gooey fruit. Never had a cobbler? If you like fluffy strawberry muffins fresh from the oven then you are gonna love this strawberry cobbler. I mean, essentially that’s kinda what cobbler is only better. Once I get my hands on some fresh berries I always make a cobbler, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a strawberry cobbler though so I was super excited.
You gotta love the fact that they are so easy to throw together. I usually have the ingredients on hand to whip up a cobbler for dessert. Coupled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and everyone is happy.
I always remember to double the crust mixture when it’s too late. That crust part is the best part of the cobbler in my house.

Be careful not to over stir batter too much. A few lumps is best.
Feel free to cut down on the sugar.
