Two words. Strawberry. Cobbler. Oh-my! It is so good! Possibly one of the best desserts I have ever put in my mouth! Seriously! The first time I tasted a strawberry cobbler was just last summer at Peach Park in Clanton, AL. Now, being the southern girl that I am, I thought I had eaten just about every kind of cobbler their was; peach cobbler, blackberry cobbler, apple cobbler, chocolate cobbler and my grandmother even makes a sweet potato cobbler. But no, I don't remember any strawberry cobbler. Trust me, I did not forget it when I had it last summer. I'm not sure why it took me so long to make one, but this is a great recipe. It is sweet, with a gooey, yummy strawberry filling and the crust. Oh the crust! It's light, yet has that little bit of crisp on the top and the sugar sprinkled over it makes this crust even better! Plus, it's a good time to make your strawberry desserts because they are in season and at a good price! So, go get you some strawberries and I'm thinking most of you have the other ingredients already in your pantry and make this! Get the recipe below!
