1 tsp kosher salt
6 Tbsp butter
1 ½ cups whole milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and butter a 2 ½ to 3 qt baking dish.
In a medium saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and strawberries. Stir over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick and hot. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and dot with 2 Tbsp butter.
In bowl combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in 6 Tbsp butter with pastry blender or a few pulses till size of peas. Stir in milk. Mixture should be soft. Place large spoonfuls of dough onto berry mixture.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
I can’t say enough about this old fashioned style cobbler. I adapted a recipe found here because the original recipe didn’t seem to work for a few people. I believe adding water is not necessary as long as your berries are ripe and juicy. The dough, however, has that great old fashioned cobbler flavor my Grandma Violet used to make.
I really loved the taste of this one. I had quite a few “Oh my God” and “Wow!” responses from guests–even from people who aren’t crazy about strawberries.
