Strawberry Cobbler (serves ten)

Tip: If the fruit you're using is particularly sweet, you should lessen the amount of sugar you add.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled, larger berries cut in half
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Nonstick cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Put the strawberries, 1/3 cup of the sugar, and the orange zest and cornstarch in a bowl and toss to combine. Les the berries stand while you make the crumble topping.
  3. Put the butter, almond flour, all-purpose flour, and remaining to tablespoons of sugar in a bowl, toss them together, and work the mixture with your fingers until it comes together in a loose dough.
  4. Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Put the strawberries in the dish, using a rubber spatula to gently pat them down into an even layer. Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the strawberries.
  5. Bake the cobbler until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbling, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve warm.
