Strawberry Cobbler

At the height of summer, strawberries are at their freshest. Use some of those to make a scrumptious strawberry cobbler for dessert.

Fresh strawberries are absolutely delicious. I love cooking them into so many things when they are in season. I’ve made strawberry muffinsstrawberry shortcakestrawberry desserts, and strawberry drinks.

We made a blackberry cobbler last summer, but this year I wanted to try an easy strawberry cobbler recipe. We tried growing strawberries in our backyard and they never grew properly. Or the animals would get them before we could. When they come in at the store, we buy some fresh fruit every week.

Strawberry cobbler is a great way to use a bunch of strawberries to make a delicious dessert that goes a long way. It’s perfect for summer gatherings, especially when served with a little bit of ice cream on top!

Fresh vs Frozen Strawberries

For this recipe, I highly recommend fresh berries, especially at the peak of strawberry season when they have so much flavor. When you use frozen strawberries, they often end up adding too much liquid into a recipe. Then it gets soggy and the crust doesn’t set properly. 

What Other Fruits Can I Use?

The base of this simple recipe can be used to make a variety of fruit cobblers. As I mentioned, we used blackberries in the past. You could also make blueberry cobbler with this recipe or raspberry. It would also be good as a peach cobbler or made with other stone fruits.

Strawberry Cobbler Leftovers

Storage: It’s a good idea to let leftover strawberry cobbler come to room temperature and then store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. 

Reheating: If want to reheat the whole thing, place it back in the oven at 350F for about 5 minutes, until warmed through. 

Freezing: To freeze, move to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.
