Homemade Strawberry Cobbler

Homemade Strawberry Cobbler has a crispy crust and a deliciously sweet strawberry filling. Perfect for a weekend dessert or a potluck. Fast to make and delicious to eat.

Every season I’m always excited for fresh strawberries to hit the farmers market. Usually, I buy so much and end up with more fruit than my family can eat.

This was the issue last year. I bought more fruit–strawberries–than my family could eat before going bad. Believe me–I made jam, jellies, desserts, and salads. We had our fill of fresh strawberries. And they were awesome!

 I decided to freeze some of the berries for later use. Check out my post on how to freeze fresh strawberries. I also made strawberry cheesecake bars, strawberry dessert bowl, and homemade strawberry pie filling

Why Should I Make This Recipe?

With it being springtime, and me trying my best to spring clean, I decided I would work on cleaning out the freezer. This is where the strawberries came into play. I ran across a bag of frozen berries in the back of the freezer. Yay!! It was like finding the prize in a box of cracker jacks.

This was a sign. A sign that I should make cobbler. I’ve wanted to make a strawberry cobbler for months, and now it was time! I pulled out my recipe and got to work. In just a matter of minutes, my cobbler was ready for the oven.

Be sure to try my Strawberry Lemonade for a refreshing drink. It’s sure to delight on a hot summer day.

The house smelled wonderful. Baked goods always seem to improve my mood, plus it earns me extra points with the family. 🙂

Begin with the Basics– Fresh Strawberries

This is a basic recipe, and I bet most of the ingredients are in your pantry. The strawberry filling is easy to make–strawberries and sugar. Just add a splash of lemon juice and a spoon of cornstarch. That’s it! 

Nothing Beats a Flaky and Crispy Crust

The crust is a wet crust. Just mix, stir, and drop on top of your filling. Really. You can have this dessert made and in the oven in 10 minutes. I did. Waiting on it to cook will take some willpower!

Strawberry cobbler is great for a year-round dessert. If you don’t have fresh strawberries, frozen strawberries from your stash or the grocery store will work perfectly.

This cobbler has been family and friend tested. Everyone loved this cobbler the last time I served it. Believe me–you will have people asking for the recipe. And it is so easy to make.

Recipe FAQ’s

Strawberry cobbler is usually good for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

Take the cobbler out of the refrigerator and transfer to an oven safe dish. Place the cobbler into the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

The choice is entirely up to you. I like to eat it both ways- hot and cold. After it comes out of the oven, I can’t resist a big bowl with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  1. This looks tasty! I love strawberries, they taste great and pair well with so many things. I really like the simplicity of this recipe and it looks like it would be easy to adapt to be Gluten Free (I am mildly allergic to wheat). Do you think it would be simple enough to change it to a strawberry rhubarb cobbler? We grow rhubarb in our garden and often times forget to use it, and I’m trying to find more ways of incorporating it into recipes:)

    1. Hey Tiffany,
      Thanks for stopping by. I have never tried Strawberry Cobbler with rhubarb. I just had a visitor to tell me she was going to try this recipe with rhubarb. It sounds like it may work. Let me know.

  2. Oohh this is a great recipe for when we pick our strawberries this year! I’ll be pinning this one! 🙂

  3. I am so excited to learn about strawberry cobbler. I only knew about peach cobbler, but strawberries are my favorite.

  4. Have I been living under a rock? I have never in my life seen a strawberry cobbler. This is a must try soon. I can only imagine the sweet notes on my palate with a dollop of whip topping or vanilla ice cream.
