Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler...That's the name and I'm sticking to it!

Technically, the recipe on the box called these simply
Strawberry Shortcake.
But the "shortcake" was so much denser than a regular shortcake,
not to mention there was a "top" crust and a "bottom" crust, 
so I am calling them 
Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler!

 I am also calling them D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!

 I am ALSO calling them easy-to-make! Not only that, but they are made as individual servings. So you get the taste of cobbler...but served individually! Does it get better? 
 I made the (individual) Strawberry Shortcake Cobblers this morning without any pre-planning. Many times we get donuts on Saturday morning from a great little bakery right down the street. This morning I was not in a donut mood, but I still wanted something sweet. I remembered seeing the strawberry shortcake recipe on the back of the Bisquick box earlier in the week and I decided to try it out. 
 I made the shortcake/cobblers exactly as the recipe said on the back of the Bisquick box. All you need is sugar (only 3 Tbs. I might add!), a little butter, milk and the Bisquick mix. You mix it all together and "drop" the shortcakes on a cookie sheet and cook for 10 minutes. I might add that the "shortcakes" do get a lot bigger when they are baking! One recipe made six very big cobblers. 
 While the shortcake cobblers were baking, I cut up my strawberries for the filling. 
 The shortcake/cobblers are similar to a biscuit texture. Even better though, there were a few crunchy spots on the top. The shortcake/cobblers are definitely sweeter than biscuits, yet really not sweet. After all they only have the 3 Tbs. of sugar. They are just absolutely right! 
 While it was still hot, I cut the top off of one of the shortcakes. I put a spoonful of Marzetti Strawberry Glaze on the bottom shortcake and spread it like you would a jam. That is purely optional though...(although it was delicious...even the sugar free!!) 
I then put a layer of fresh strawberries, some Cool Whip, and then the top of the shortcake back on. I served it to my (very-surprised) Hubster. It was so quick to make, that he was not expecting something so delicious! I think he was thinking more bowl-of-cereal-type-morning. BUT to tell you how great these little shortcakes are (that have only been on the back of Bisquick boxes for YEARS and I never tried them!!!), after finishing off his Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler, the Hubs then put fresh blackberries on a shortcake and said the results were just as delicious. So if you are like me, and have seen that recipe for years and never tried it, NOW is the time.
You'll be glad you did!
I'm thinking Sunday-after-church-dessert??!!??

Edited to add: It is Sunday night and the Hubster just asked me if I could make some kind of a "blackberry syrup" to eat with the scones. I asked him what scones he was talking about and he was referring to the shortcakes (which I call cobbler!). Actually, his take on the shortcakes/cobbler is pretty accurate. They are kind of "scone-ish". And still delish!
And yes, I will probably whip up some kind of blackberry glaze to eat with the shortcakes/cobber/scones and fresh blackberries!

  1. Honestly that looks just fabulous!
    Thanks for sharing, your pics make it look just like the perfect dessert.

  2. I use the drop biscuit recipe on the side of the box and add sugar. This was what I thought strawberry shortcake was until I was older. Our family also enjoys pouring milk over the biscuit, strawberries, and cool whip!!

  3. I am so happy when it is strawberry season. You have a lovely site.

  4. That looks delicious. I am a new follower. If you get a chance, please visit my blog. I am having a giveaway for my new cookie cookbook.


Welcome to my Big Story. You thought....
