Strawberries are one of those fabulously seasonal fruits that are best eaten during the warm summer months. Even more seasonal is the rhubarb—a terrifically tart stem that actually looks like pink celery! Rhubarb has a very short harvest window, so while it’s in season, I love the traditional pairing of strawberry and rhubarb.
My take on cobbler uses a traditional southern technique: instead of a crumble or crust, I dropped biscuits on top of the fruity filling! And, to make it extra fun, I used a star-shaped cookie cutter to shape the biscuits. To keep it simple, you can use a traditional biscuit cutter, or even cut biscuits into squares with a knife instead.
To make this recipe autoimmune protocol-friendly, simply omit the cardamom from the biscuit recipe. Up to you if you want to replace with extra cinnamon.
