Strawberry Cobbler

Nothing says summer like a heart-warming Strawberry Cobbler! Topped with brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds, this dessert will remind you of summer days spent relaxing in the backyard catching lightning bugs, or the classic scent of a home-cooked meal wafting from grandma’s kitchen. Serve in small cast iron skillets atop classic red linens for an added down-home feel.
