For the strawberries

For the biscuit topping


  • Rinse and slice 4 cups of fresh strawberries and add them to a large bowl.
  • Then add 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix it all together and place into a 9-inch pie dish. Bake at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar, then add 1/4 cup of cubed unsalted butter.
  • Cut through the butter using your hands or a pastry cutter.
  • Now pour in 1/2 cup of buttermilk and mix it with a wooden spoon.
  • Using a medium-sized cookie scoop, dollop scoops of the dough on top of the baked strawberries.
  • Brush the cobbler dough with 1 tablespoon of melted unsalted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake at 370°F for about 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream



  • Use cold butter- Cold butter is a must for the biscuit dough to come together. It will create flaky layers in the dough, and also be easier to cube.
  • Don't use canned fruit- While frozen fruit that is thawed can be used instead of fresh strawberries, canned fruit is too syrupy and soft, leading to a gooey, gummy cobbler.
  • You can freeze this cobbler. Once it's cooled, cover it with foil and place it in an airtight container or freezer bag. You can freeze it for about 3 months. When you're ready to eat it, thaw it in the fridge overnight and warm it in the oven before serving.
