This Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler is super easy with frozen rhubarb and fresh strawberries! Just layer the fruit and top it with a dough batter and melted butter for a delicious dessert that is so good with plenty of vanilla ice cream on top!
There are a lot of rhubarb fans in my family and I seem to have no garden around here! The solution was quite simple…buy frozen rhubarb that requires no rinsing or chopping [that makes me so happy]. In the meantime, I’ll try and talk my husband into clearing a spot in the treeline for my herb garden.
You just can’t do cobbler without eating eat hot with plenty of vanilla ice cream on top. I thoroughly enjoy letting it melt a bit so I feel like I’m eating more of a sundae. Its a total win that cobbler topping doesn’t get real crunchy like a traditional pie crust. You really can’t mess up this recipe and there is no need to worry about your kids dumping flour all over your kitchen with a rolling pin incident [learned the hard way].
I took these pictures sometime last summer and kind of missed rhubarb season altogether. It is apparently the time now, but the weather is still trying to pull a fast one on us. That’s why it is so great to be able to use frozen rhubarb right now. I did quite a bit of experimenting last year and this was by far my favorite recipe. Apparently, it was well received because the entire pan went missing while I was at work one day. I’m really in need of a hidden compartment somewhere if there is ever hope of me getting any goodies around here.
