For the filling:

  • 8 cups fresh strawberries, hulled (about 3 pounds) leave whole if berries are small or cut in half if very large
  • ½ Granny Smith apple peeled and grated on a large box grater
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For the topping:

  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed and cold
  • cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar for topping
  • vanilla or strawberry ice cream, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking pan (see NOTES)

To prepare the filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the strawberries and grated apple. In a measuring cup combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Pour the sugar mixture over the strawberries and toss to coat. Pour the strawberries into the prepared pan. Set aside.

To prepare the topping:

  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and granulated sugar. Add the butter. Using a pastry blender cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the cream and stir with a fork just until moistened. Gently press the dough together using a spatula, forming a loose dough. Crumble the dough in clumps on top of the strawberries, leaving some of the strawberries exposed. Sprinkle coarse sugar on top of the dough.
  • Bake until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, about 40-45 minutes. Serve warm topped with ice cream if desired.


This cobbler can also be baked in a 9-inch cast iron skillet or any casserole dish where it will fit. You want to have enough surface area on top so some of the berries show through the crumbled dough.
Top with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.
