Strawberry Cobbler

So yesterday in Beaverton was fabulous....It was a sunny, breezy 75 degree day and made all of us think that the flooding rain had finally stopped. That was until we got up this morning to a total down pour yet again....Is someone building that ARK yet? Back to the yummy stuff, my husband and I wanted to make something that would make us feel like it was summer or at least look like summer in a dish. So what else than to make a wonderful dessert made out of Strawberries. This recipe is so quick, easy and absolutely fabulous! We had it simply with a cinnamon sugar topping, but it would be wonderful with whipped topping or vanilla ice-cream. YUMMO!!!

6 C. - Strawberries (cut into thirds)
1/3 C. - Sugar
2 C. - Flour
2/3 C. - Sugar
2 Tsp. - Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp. - Baking Soda
1/4 C. - Salt
3/4 C. - Butter
1 C. - Buttermilk
1 Tbs. - Sugar
1/2 Tbs. - Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 3 Quart dish or 8 medium ramekins, place the berries in the baking dish and sprinkle with 1/3 c. sugar and mix well. In another bowl mix the flour, 2/3C. sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives and cut the butter into the flour mixture until it's coarse and crumbly. Add the buttermilk and mix until fully blended and a thick batter forms. Spoon the batter over the berries and using the back of a spoon spread the batter evenly over the top of the berries, don't worry about if you have holes in the batter because it will fill in while baking. Sprinkle the top of the cobbler with some of the cinnamon sugar then bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
