I'm Bribing you with a YUMMY Summer Dessert

Well, I'm going to say this right up front . . . I'm not a person who resorts to bribery very often. But I am tonight. I really want more BLOG FOLLOWERS. So if I give you this really YuMmY recipe, will you tell your friends about my blog??? You see, there's a really good reason for that. NEXT WEEK something really wonderful is going to happen here. I'm going to have a celebration, but I'm just going to keep it at that for right now. I'll have some prizes too! Do you like prizes??? Perhaps a discount coupon?
Leave me a note here about your favorite dessert, and I'll enter your name into a drawing to win one of my Vintage Bottle Cap Necklaces.

And now, for the recipe:

Grilled Strawberry Cobbler

6 wooden skewers (we used metal skewers)

1 (2#) container fresh strawberries, stems removed

1 c. strawberry preserves

1/4 c. water

2 tbl. fresh lemon juice

1/2 c. butter

2 c. all-purpose baking mix (I used Bisquick)

2 c. sugar

1-1/2 c. half-and-half

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Preheat grill to high heat (400-500 degrees)

  2. Thread strawberries onto skewers. Arrange skewers on grill, and grill for 2-3 minutes per side, slice strawberries, and set aside

  3. In a small saucepan, combine strawberry preserves, water, and lemon juice over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, cook for 2 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 350.

  5. Place butter in a 13x9 inch baking dish. Place dish in oven until butter melts.

  6. In a medium bowl, combine baking mix, sugar, and half-and-half. Pour batter into dish with butter. Arrange strawberries on top of batter. Pour preserves mixture over top of strawberries.

  7. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

ENJOY . . .
