Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler Recipe

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler Recipe

This ruby red cobbler has an old-fashioned look and flavor that can’t be beat. Tender golden brown biscuits top the thick filling that’s loaded with fruit. —Sabrina Musk, Caledonia, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add rhubarb and strawberries; toss to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish.

Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
