Strawberry Cobblers in Jam Jars

I love holding on to jam jars and re-using them. In addition to just being pretty, they are so practical when cooking for a picnic. In this recipe, you bake your cobbler right in the jar and, once cooled, simply screw on the lid and your dessert is ready to go.

Ingredients

Filling:

1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered

1/4 cup sugar 

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch 

Juice of 1/2 lemon 

Topping:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, plus 1 teaspoon for sprinkling 

1 teaspoon baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

3 tablespoons milk 

2 tablespoons butter, melted 

1 egg yolk, lightly beaten 

Vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional 

Directions

Special equipment:
four 8-ounce oven-safe jars
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. For the filling: In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries with the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Spoon the fruit into four 8-ounce oven-safe glass jars, or other similarly-sized oven-safe containers. (I like to use actual jam jars.)
  3. For the topping: In another medium bowl, mix the flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and butter and, using your hands or a fork, stir together to form a dough. Crumble the dough in large pieces over the strawberries, dividing it evenly among the jars.
  4. Brush the tops of the dough with a light coating of egg yolk, and sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon of the remaining sugar over each jar.
  5. Place the jars on a baking sheet or in a roasting tin (to catch any juices that might spill over), and bake until the fruit is bubbling and the dough is golden and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. The cobblers can be served warm or at room temperature, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, if desired.
