Good morning friends!
My heart is so happy this morning as I join Rachel for the Bread and Wine Project.
I knew this book was for me as soon as heard about it…maybe it’s my southern roots or maybe it’s just because I’m human and I love food – especially bread!! The first page of the book had my mouth watering for a honey buttered croissant – can I get an amen?!
Some of my most vivid memories are over the old oak dining table in my parent’s home… always including some sort of food no less. The gospel has been shared there, I learned to write my name there, I hand tied my wedding invitations there, & decorated Christmas cookies with my grandmother there…I could go on for days about the things that table has heard & seen. Including the food. The food that has been served there has been cooked from scratch, served with love, & blessed with prayer. I can only hope that my old oak table sitting in my kitchen will serve the same purpose to my family.
But we aren’t here to talk about the tables…it’s about the food! While I totally agree that the setting is important, the contents of the food is what nourishes our soul & feeds our spirit.
Today I am sharing a delicious cobbler I made with fresh picked Michigan strawberries! It smells absolutely heavenly while baking & tastes just as delicious!
A few weeks ago when my parents visited, we traveled north to Michigan. There was this sweet old red barn with a “You-Pick Strawberry Sign” & we could not pass it up! The weather was perfect & the strawberries were fresh.
1 Stick Butter
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Pinch of Salt
2 Quarts Whole Strawberries
4 Ounces Cream Cheese, cubed.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash & cap strawberries if you have not already.
In a 9×13 pan, place your stick of butter & put in the oven until melted.
In a small bowl, mix egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, & salt. Pour directing into your baking dish, over the butter. Do NOT stir.
Add strawberries on top, being careful to make sure they do not overlap. Sprinkle in pieces of cream cheese over strawberries.
Bake on 350 for 45 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Serve warm with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice-cream!!
The best part of this cobbler recipe is that you can easily add any fresh fruit & are guaranteed a delicious dessert!
Thanks for joining me today for the Bread & Wine Project & I hope you join us next time!
Frankly my dear…get your cobbler on!
