I was perusing Pinterest, as I often do, when I saw a recipe for strawberry cobbler at Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom: Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler. I eat strawberries fresh, I eat strawberries on pancakes, I eat strawberries on short cake, but I have not eaten strawberries in a cobbler. (sounds a little like Dr. Seuss, doesn't it?) So I checked the fridge and all I needed was more strawberries. A quick trip to the store and I had them. They are luscious and red. They will look pretty on the patriotic patio table I have set up and hubs loves to taste test for me. Take a look at the jar lanterns hanging under the umbrella. That is another Pin Win and you can see more HERE. I cut the recipe down a little, since I cook for two and still had enough for 6 ramekins. Because the recipe is so simple, it will be very easy to cut it down even more. I wish I had picked up some vanilla ice cream, maybe on the extras tomorrow...
Here is my decreased batter for 6 ramekins, but I really encourage you to check out the original site, she has gobs of other tempting recipes.
Wash, core, and remove stems off your strawberries. I put 3 large strawberries in each serving.
Mix the batter:
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
- a few drops of vanilla
The rest of the cobbler ingredients:
- 6 teaspoons butter
- Strawberries (I had a pint)
- 1/2 block of cream cheese
Melt a teaspoon of butter in the bottom of each ramekin (or a small canning jar)
Fill the ramekins about 1/3 full with batter.
Top the batter with 3 prepared large strawberries.
Top the strawberries with little dabs of cream cheese. You don't need to cover them, just about a tablespoon to a ramekin.
Transfer the ramekins to a cookie sheet and place in the center of a preheated oven.
Bake 350 F for 45-55 minutes. I left this batch in for an hour and it was a little over done. I'm sure it's because I was cooking in ramekins and not a larger pan. Duh, I knew better.
What did I tell you...really simple! Now, go put together some cobbler and then (while it's baking) go check out Julie's site.
