Fresh Strawberry Cobbler

strawcobbler

I think I am itching for winter to start ending and for Spring and Summer to be here…it is March now, so I can be ready for winter to be over, right?!  This fresh strawberry cobbler gave us a little taste of what is just a few months down the road.  Enjoy this with a bit of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, and a few more sliced strawberries on top.  It is not super sweet, more like a pan of shortcake.  So tasty, a perfect taste of summer!
