The easiest way to enjoy strawberries is with a strawberry cobbler.  Strawberries baked with a slightly sweet biscuit on top are the perfect way to enjoy the last of the season’s berries.

We’ve had an amazing strawberry season this year. The cool but not freezing temperatures in the Spring combined with late rainfalls have given us a much longer growing season and I have been buying them by the buckets.  I’ve made four batches of jam and we’ve enjoyed them in Strawberry Slab Pie, Strawberry Shortbread Cake, Strawberry Crostini and Strawberry Coconut Bars.

My last batch I picked up was a little watery from the rain storms we’ve had so I decided to use them in a cobbler. You just can’t beat a cobbler when it comes to a fruit dessert. The nice thing about baking fruit is that even if it’s not quite ripe or maybe a little too ripe, it’s still going to be great when you bake it.

A slightly sweet biscuit tops this cobbler which I thought was a great combination. I added a bit more fruit as I thought it was a little too much biscuit to fruit ratio.  I was able to prepare the whole thing before my oven pre-heated.

So if you’re in a part of the country where you’re getting the last of the strawberries, try throwing them into a cobbler for a quick but amazing dessert.  If the strawberry season where you are has past, baking strawberries from the grocery into a cobbler is a great way to enjoy strawberries that may have passed their prime.
