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

  • 3/4 cup sugar

"Made this excellent recipe late one Saturday... you know when you're craving something sweet, starting a diet on Monday and have lots of strawberries and rhubarb to use up. I baked it in a round 8" glass cake pan making 8 biscuits. The topping, like Bisquick shortcake, was very tender and delicious. I pulled the butter from the freezer and chopped it up with a big knife before incorporating it well into the flour mixture. Filling was just right too. Top with whipped cream Yum! Only thing I heard from my husband was "WOW!!! Oh honey this is great!""

"Unlike other reviewers I found this recipe to be too sweet for my family's taste. However, it is very good and easy. I will make again with less sugar."

"This is so delicious! I think this is my favorite strawberry recipe so far. I like that it's not so sickly sweet like most rhubarb recipes. I've already made it twice (in one week) and my family loves it!"

"It wouldn't be my first choice but if I did make it again I might try to change it up a bit. Seemed too tart and bitter."

"Made this yesterday with rhubarb from our CSA. It was delicious! The compote was so good, might make just that next time for ice cream, French toast...The biscuits were tender, but I forgot to sprinkle with sugar before baking. A golden sugar crust would have made them even better!"
