🍓 Ingredient notes
- Strawberry rhubarb filling - Made with fresh fruit, sugar, a little bit of lemon juice, and some cornstarch, this filling is easy to put together. I recommend cutting the fruit into similar sized pieces to help with even cooking.
- Biscuit topping - This homemade biscuit dough takes just a few minutes to put together. After you drop the biscuit dough onto the fruit filling I recommend brushing the top of the dough with a little bit of milk and sprinkling it with a little bit of sugar. This helps the biscuits to brown nicely and also gives them a bit of extra sweetness.
🥣 Step by step instructions
First, butter a 10" cast iron skillet and add all of the ingredients for the filling into it. Toss them gently to combine everything together.
Next, combine the dry ingredients for the biscuit dough in a bowl and whisk to combine and remove any lumps. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut in the cold butter pieces until they are crumbly and evenly mixed throughout the flour.
Add the milk and vanilla and stir until it just comes together as a dough.
Drop the dough by spoonfuls over the top of the filling until it is mostly covered by the dough.
Next, brush the biscuit dough lightly with milk and sprinkle with a tablespoon or two of sugar.
Bake in a 350˚ oven for about 30-35 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the biscuits are golden brown.
I recommend letting the cobbler cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
