Strawberries and Roses

June is the month for both strawberries and roses. The juicy sweet ripeness, and the softly scented air make the farm smell heavenly. The strawberries are being used for fresh eating, snacking, shortcake, and even cobbler lately. Here is the cobbler just made on the farm.

Strawberry Cobbler:
1 Cup flour
1 Cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
a pinch of salt
1 Cup of milk
1 stick of melted butter
2 Cups of strawberries

Add all dry ingredients together and stir. Add milk and mix until smooth. Finally stir in the melted butter until the mixture is silky. Pour this into a buttered baking dish or deep dish pie plate.
Now add the sliced in half strawberries and push then into the batter in the pan. You can create a design onto or let the berries fall where they may! Sprinkle the top of the berry filled batter with a teaspoon of sugar and bake at 350' for nearly an hour. Let sit for about 30 minutes before serving.
This is also delicious the next day with tea or coffee. Be sure to use a favorite flowered plate or table cloth when serving...Enjoy!
