I was thinking strawberry shortcake too PA. Here are 2 other desserts that are on the lighter side.

3 Minute Cobbler- It only takes 3 minutes to mix up!

1/2C. butter or margarine
1C. flour
1C. granulated sugar
2teaspoons baking powder
3/4C. milk
1/4teaspoon salt
1 16 ounce can fruit pie filling or fruit

Melt butter in a casserole dish. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, milk, & salt until all lumps are gone.(A wire whisk is best for this.) Dump the fruit on top, but don't stir it in. Bake for 1 hour at 350 deg.


Strawberry Pie

3Tablespoons strawberry gelatin
1C. sugar
3Tablespoons cornstarch
pinch salt
1C. water
3 drops red food coloring(optional)
3C. sliced strawberries
1 baked 9-inch pie shell

Combine gelatin, sugar, cornstarch, & salt to make a paste with 1/8C. of the water. Set aside. Boil the remaining 7/8C. of the water & gradually add the paste, stirring constantly to prevent lumping. Cook until thickened. Cool for 2 hours. Arrange sliced strawberries in pie shell. Stir food coloring into cooled glazed & pour over strawberries. Cool completely ; chill. Top slices with whipped cream.

Any ideas??
IF you get FoodTV watch Paula Dean, she is VERY southern and it is strong in her food. I always think of fried chicken as being southern

Crewsky!!
That Cobbler Recipe was given to me by a friend in 1959. I was handed down in his family by his grandmother who was elderley and lived in Georgia. She used (and so do I) a large can of peaches heated with the 1/4 cup of sugar until it it melted.And not a cup of sugar in the rest but 3/4 cup or it will be too sweet. and 1 cup of milk.This is my family's most favoriate dessert.
I use a wire wisk to blend the ing.before adding the peaches.

This is more like a pudding cobbler...

1 pkg frozen baby sweet corn (I use the white and yellow mixed)
1/2 cup each minced green, yellow and red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red onion or scallion

Dressing -

1/3 cup sherry or apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves minced garlic



mmmmmmmmmm that sounds awfully good....gonna have to do that!

Whisk all that up well to dissolve the honey and salt, then add 2/3 cup olive oil, and whisk to emulsify. Pour over the veggies, toss well, cover and let sit overnight.


That sounds awfully good - gonna have to make this!

Thanks!

Cool! I got this one from a lady I used to go to church with. I don't know how long it's been around but she was 103 when she passed away a few years ago. My family loves it too! I normally have to make one for my dad with blackberries for his birthday. Since he & my mom are on a diet I didn't make him one this year.

We call it Georgia Cobbler since it is so different than the one people usually make..Wonder if way back when, this is the one that they made over the campfires..???.
also if splenda could be used instead of sugar...hmmmm

I don't see why Splenda couldn't be used.

I agree with crewsk--they say that Splenda can be substituted equally for sugar in just about any recipe, so I'd say to give it a try and enjoy!
