Delicious strawberry cobbler (in individual servings), featuring fresh strawberries and a buttery crumb topping, will be a family dessert favorite!
Clean, de-stem and hull strawberries. Slice into quarters. Place strawberries and granulated sugar in a medium sized saucepan. Stir to combine, then let sit for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, place pan on stove and heat strawberries on medium heat for 5 minutes.
While strawberries are heating, combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl. Whisk well to fully combine (and dissolve the cornstarch...no lumps!) Pour cornstarch mixture into the strawberries. Stir. Continue heating (and stirring) the strawberries until mixture begins to boil. Remove pan from the heat. Divide strawberry mixture into 4 ramekins. Set aside.
To make the crumb topping, place brown sugar, oats, flour and butter in s small bowl. Cut ingredients together with a pastry blender (or two forks), until it becomes small crumbles. Evenly distribute crumb topping over the top of all 4 strawberry-filled ramekins (cover the tops completely). Put ramekins on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper, a silicone mat, or aluminum foil. This helps catch any drips that may or may not occur (depending on how full the ramekins are).
Bake cobbler at 350 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. When done, topping should be golden brown, and bubbly around the edges. Remove from oven. Let cobbler cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, garnish with a sprig of mint, dig in... and ENJOY!!!
You do not need to lightly mash the strawberries as I did (to extract more juice). Just omit that step and add the quartered strawberries to the saucepan with the granulated sugar. It's all good.
