Friday Cobbler

Delightful strawberry cobbler! Which, unfortunately is shunned in the cobbler world.  Cody had never even had a strawberry cobbler. So, that is what I made today.

Take 6 cups of Strawberries (fresh or frozen) and cut up into bite sized chunks.

Here I am rinsing my 6 cups of strawberries. I rinse mine about three times because I have a Beni.  I recommend anyone with a hairy, shedding, Beni do the same.

Put your strawberries in your red bowl. If you are without a red bowl, continue on with a substitution in shame.

Throw half a cup of sugar over the strawberries. That is unless you are my Grannie Fern, then just go ahead and make it 3 cups.

Then add a tablespoon of orange juice (I just use the good stuff from the bottle in the fridge) and half of a small orange’s worth of zest.

Then divide off your large pan, unless you are fancy and have all the appropriate sized pans. Once the pan sizing is taken care of place the strawberries in the pan and forget um.

Now the dough. The best part!

Combine 2 Cups flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon Baking Powder and 1 tablespoon sugar in a separate bowl.  Then add in 1/4 cup shortening (I like to use the butter flavored stuff but any old thing will do) and 4 tablespoons of butter.  Mush it together with your hands until it is all nice and golden and crumby.

Then measure off 1/2 cup of milk. Mix an egg into the milk and then stir that concoction into the crumby dough.  The dough shouldn’t be too sticky so watch out.

Now, pancake that dough on top of the strawberries.  Sprinkle some sugar over it, I think about a tablespoon and a half is plenty.

It bakes for 30 min at 425.

Cody is bringing home some vanilla ice cream to compliment this dessert, but it is good enough alone.
