Ingredients

Fruit Filling:
  • 4 cups of fresh Wish Farms strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
Topping:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Nutmeg to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Fruit Filling:
  • In a large saucepan combine the strawberries, sugar, brown sugar, salt and corn starch. Bring mixture to a boil while stirring occasionally. Cook for about 1 to 2 more minutes so the mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Pour into a cast iron skillet or 8 inch baking pan that’s been liberally sprayed with non-stick spray.
Topping:
  • In a medium sized bowl cut the shortening and butter into the flour. Add the brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Continue to cut the butter into the flour.
  • Now add the milk and mix until combined thoroughly.
  • Drop the mixture over top of the cooked strawberry mixture. Drop randomly so the strawberry mixture can peek out!
  • Add cinnamon or nutmeg on top for color and extra flavor.
  • Place the skillet, or baking dish, in the oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
