Rhubarb and Strawberry Cobbler

I'd have preffered to prepare this in a 9" by 13" glass baking dish, but my oven just failed so had to utilize the toaster oven and a smaller glass dish.

With rhubarb season at its peak here in the Midwest I got the urge for this dessert.

A marriage of sweetness and tartness.

I'm going to be grumpy and not a happy camper, until I get my oven back.

Maybe it is time to retire my 24 year old range. Convection and stainless piques my interest. Hmm....

Natural Gas of course. Electric and I don't work well together.

Ingredients

4 to 5 c
fresh rhubarb cut into 1 lengths
10 oz
frozen strawberries
2/3 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 stick
butter
1/2 tsp
oil to grease dish
1/4 c
flour
1 tsp
cinnamon

SWEET BISCUIT MIX

2 1/2 c
biscuit mix (jiffy or biscuick)
3 Tbsp
sugar
1/4 stick
butter (additional)
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
milk

Step-By-Step

1With a sharp paring knife and thumb I pull off the tougher outer portion of the rhubarb and cut into 1" pieces. Rinse and place in bowl with the 2/3 cup of sugar, the salt, butter, and cinnamon. stir and mix slightly. Then sprinkle on the 1/4 cup of flour used as a thickener.
2Add the 10 oz. of thawed frozen strawberries and lightly stir again. You could use fresh strawberries if you add sugar to them and place in fridge a day ahead of time.
3Place Rhubarb/Strawberry mixture in Baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. We'll put the biscuit mix on top after this initial bake time.
4For the Biscuit Mix: Prepare per package instructions with the addition of sugar, or as I did. In bowl add 2 1/2 cups biscuit mix. 3 tablespoon of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 stick butter and stir and mix these dry ingredients. When mixed add the 1/2 cup milk and mix to a biscuit consistency. Don't over mix.
5After 45 to 50 minutes remove rhubarb from oven and spoon the biscuit mix on top. return to oven for 18 to 22 minutes. You can sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon on top, as well as a little melted butter.
6Serve slightly warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
Enjoy.
