Strawberry Cobbler Bars.
Happy 4th of July!
I’ve got a special treat for you today! This recipe is one of my fave fave faaaaavorites and it’s straight out of The Pretty Dish! These strawberry cobbler bars are a take on the blueberry peach version from my cookbook and they are SO GOOD.
While they may not be as easy as opening up a boxed mix, they aren’t too difficult and they taste like heaven. I mean, straight up heaven!
And the best news is that if strawberries are on their way out where you live? This kind of stretches their life. Our local berries aren’t the best anymore, but using them this way makes them fantastic.
Not sure which part I love more. The shortbread-like crust or the crumbly topping. Ugh! Delicious city.
All the exclamation points and fireworks for these.
Strawberry Cobbler Bars
crust and topping
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cups sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup unsalted butter melted
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup half and half
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 2 to 2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries sliced
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
- Stir the flour, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Add the melted butter and stir until a shortbread-like dough comes together. I even use my hands to bring it together. Press half of the dough into the bottom of the dish.
- In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and cornstarch. Gently fold in in the strawberries.
- Pour the mixture over top of the crust. Crumble the rest of the dough over top of the strawberry mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the bars are set and no long jiggly. Cool completely before slicing into squares!

Perfect summer treat – happy 4th of July!
My 💜 is telling me to toss some rhubarb in with the strawberries. Happy 4th
sounds delicious! thanks!!
Delicious bars! They are one of my go-to recipes. Made them yesterday with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries! Yummy!
YUM!!….So many fruit possibilities with this recipe… Can’t wait to try…..will frozen fruit work??
it usually will! depends on the exact fruit. if you use strawberries, i would thaw them first and strain most of the juice so it’s not too liquidy!
I saw this around 1p and decided on a whim to give it a try. Ran to the store, I only needed 4 ingredients. It came together quickly. It smells amazing and I’m just waiting for it to come out of the oven. I know it will be great.
Since I have to work tomorrow I’m not doing much for the holiday but this is fun.
Ok, they have baked and cooled. Delicious and not too sweet. I will make again
thank you so much paula! so glad you liked them!
Looks amazing! How long will these keep, and do they need to be refrigerated due to the filling, or are they safe at room temperature?
hi! they are safe at room temp! but they are also pretty great from the fridge too. i keep them at room temperature and they will stay great for a few days (if they last that long, haha!)!

These are AMAZING and so easy to put together! I bake all the time, and my husband says this is his favorite thing I’ve ever made. I’ll probably make another batch later this week. Thank you for the fantastic recipe. :)
I just got back from the store and forgot half and half! Are there any substitutions?
Delish! made these last night and served slightly warm with scoop of vanilla ice cream and fresh berries :)
Second the question of the half and half. Any way to make these dairy free?

I made this today and it’s wonderful! The buttery shortbread is the perfect compliment to the fruit. Thank you!
Side note: I didn’t have brown sugar in the house so I had to improvise. I used a combination of regular sugar and pomegranate molasses. It gave the bars a slightly tart almost strawberry rhubarb flavor.
Hey, I was wondering if you knew how to modify the recipe for an 8×8 or 9×9 pan? Is there a standard conversion? I’m super excited to make these!
I did an 8 X 8 version. I made a little more than half a recipe. And watched the baking time. It took about 30 min.
It worked great!
thanks for sharing it i found it so amazing
These photos have me drooling. What a gorgeous and simple dessert!!
OMG! How have I missed these wonderful things?! These strawberry bars are everything!! Definitely a keeper!
Absolutely delicious! Had just picked strawberries and was looking for someting new and these were perfect. So simple to make, but taste like they took all day!

These were so easy to make with just two bowls and a whisk.
I cooked them in a round pan in my toaster oven so that I didn’t get my house all warm in the heat of the summer. The crust and crumble is a shortbread that melts in your mouth.
I look forward to trying them with other fruits.
This will be a regular recipe from now on. Thanks so much for sharing this!
Can you freeze these?
Can I know how long can this treats last in room temperature?
Just made these (again!!!) and my apartment smells heavenly. Perfect for a crowd and LOVE playing around with the fruit combinations.
