Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler

Serves: Makes 6 Servings

Ingredients:

Shortcakes:

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the work surface
  • ½ cup coarse yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces, at room temperature
  • ½ cup heavy cream


Filling:

  • 5 cups strawberries (about 2 quarts), hulled and halved
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Procedures:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

For the shortcakes: In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using your hands, rub the butter into the flour mixture until no large chunks remain. Add the cream and mix with your hands just until blended. Turn the dough out onto lightly floured work surface and knead the dough just until it's no longer super sticky, about 2 minutes.

Using your hands, form the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter (or an approximation thereof), punch out as many shortcakes as you can. Re-pat the scraps to 1 inch thick and repeat until all the dough is used. Set the shortcakes aside while you prepare the filling (transfer to the refrigerator if they feel too soft).

For the filling: In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries with the granulated sugar, cornstarch, and lime juice. Transfer the berries to a 9-inch cast-iron skillet, pie dish, or cake pan (a 9 x 13-inch baking dish will also work in a pinch) and top with the shortcakes.

Brush the tops of the shortcakes with the cream and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Bake until the shortcakes are golden brown and the juices of the strawberries have thickened and bubbled up around the edges of the skillet, 25 to 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before digging in (this will not only prevent unnecessary mouth burns, but letting it cool a bit will help set the juices so it is not too runny).
