What is strawberry cobbler?
If you haven't ever had strawberry cobbler before, it's a strawberry filling made with fresh strawberries and a bit of sugar and vanilla mixed in, plus some flour to thicken it. It's all covered in a biscuit topping.
When you add either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream it makes it even better. The two items complement each other very well.
