We’ve enjoyed a really great strawberry season here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. As with all produce, some seasons are just better than others, based on weather patterns and pests.

I’ve been buying local strawberries by the armful, because I know very soon our strawberries will be gone. I’m freezing them for later use, baking them into treats, adding berries to salads, and popping them straight into my mouth… Pretty much all day long.

Making Strawberry Shortcake Skillet Cobbler Recipe


Above all strawberry recipes, strawberry shortcakes and strawberry cobbler are my personal favorites.

So today, I’ve combined these two traditional desserts into one dazzling strawberry treat known as Strawberry Shortcake Skillet Cobbler.

Shortcakes make a wonderful cobbler topping because they sink down into the strawberries, then puff up over the top. I love adding a little cornmeal to my shortcake dough to offer a touch of rustic texture.

Roasting the strawberries in the oven creates a rich syrup and gives the berries intense depth of flavor.

To Make Strawberry Shortcake Skillet Cobbler

Start by prepping the shortcake dough and place it in the refrigerator to chill. As with all biscuit variations, cold dough with flecks of butter in it creates a light flaky texture. However, it has to go into the oven cold.

How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Skillet Cobbler Recipe

While the dough is chilling, cut the strawberries in half and place in a large deep-dish cast iron skillet. Add lemon zest, vanilla, and sugar. Simmer the strawberries on the stovetop for 5 minutes to give them a head-start on the shortcakes.

Then cut the shortcake dough into rounds and arrange the disks over the surface of the simmering berries. Place the entire skillet in the oven and bake until the shortcakes are puffy and golden.

In the oven, the shortcakes will first drop a little into the berry filling. Then they will rise up and bloom over the top of the strawberries. The exposed strawberries around the edges roast to a dark ruby color.

    are you serious? Within an hour of seeing this, I went to the store for strawberries. Of course, I cheated and used the Grand Biscuits from the dairy isle instead of making homemade shortbread. It was awesome!!!!!! I can only imagine how much better it would have been if I made real shortbread. Sommer, you are the bomb!!!

    Hi Somer: If I wanted to make this in a 9×13 glass oven casserole dish do you feel I should double the recipe for both the strawberries and biscutis? I am feeding a crowd so I want to make it easy. However I don’t want to make it so t hin on the strawberries that they burn.

      Hi Maureen! For a 9 X 13 inch dish I would probably make 1.5 recipes. I’m afraid 2 whole recipes would bubble over into the oven. Let me know how it turns out for you! :)
