Strawberry Cobbler

Cobblers are one of my all-time favorite desserts. When I was trying to decide on a recipe to feature for the February issue of the Birmingham Magazine, the first thing that came to mind was a warm succulent Strawberry Cobbler. I thought it would be different to add oats to the topping, making it lighter and healthier. The recipe worked perfectly on my first try during recipe testing (I love it when that happens). When my 3 kids said, “Mom, this is the best thing you have ever made.” I must admit, I agreed. Enjoy on Valentines, Mother’s Day or really anytime. It’s true comfort food, easy to prepare and so worth it.

  1. Why didn’t I ever think of strawberry cobbler? Guess I don’t often think of strawberries cooked, but eaten fresh. I need to change the way I think-this looks fabulous!

  2. Allison, do you think I could make this recipe work without the egg? Egg allergy makes it difficult to bake a lot of things, but this recipe sounds wonderful.
