Strawberry Cobbler for Canada Day!

strawberry cobbler 1

I found the perfect Canada Day dessert for your festivities this year, strawberry cobbler (and for my American peeps, I’ve got your red and white covered and you can throw a blueberry on top, and call it a day. 🙂 ) Strawberries are on in Ontario right now, and this would be the perfect way to use some that you’ve freshly picked.

This was a new recipe for me and I have to tell you it is so, so good. Even my picky eater who won’t even try strawberries loved this dessert. I made it in 12 mini mason jars, which I thought would be perfect at a backyard bbq celebration, since they’re portable, cute, and already portioned. If your having this delicious dessert at home, you could also bake it in a 2 qt. baking dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

1. Slice strawberries in half or quarters if they’re big and mix with up to 1/4 cup of sugar, depending on the berries sweetness. Then divide them among 12 of the mini 4 oz. mason jars.

2. To prepare the topping, cream butter and 1 cup of sugar in a stand mixer. Add in egg and vanilla, and mix well. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and combine well, without over mixing.

3. Divide the cobbler between the 12 mason jars, flatten into a disk and place over the strawberries. Place mason jars on a cookie sheet for cooking.

4. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 20 min. until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and add the lids onto the mason jars to make a more portable treat. Serve with whip cream or vanilla ice cream if you like, delicious served warm or cool. Enjoy!

Cobbler seems to be a not very Canadian dessert, most people I’ve served it to have never tried it, but they were certainly converts after one try. I really love it, and it’s so much easier than making a pie. This really is the perfect treat for this long weekend. I paired it up with pretty free printables from Polkadot Prints. We heart Canada, and we heart this strawberry cobbler. 😉
