DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 375 degrees.
  • Butter an 8-inch baking dish.
  • If using fresh strawberries then slice in half.
  • Place all berries in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl using a fork, stir the 3/4 cup sugar with cornstarch until well blended; add to the berries with the rum and orange peel; stir gently to coat.
  • Transfer the mixture into prepared baking dish and spread out evenly.
  • To make the topping: using a fork, stir the flour with baking powder, lime peel, salt and sugar; cut the shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles oatmeal.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the half and half or milk; mix JUST until a wet dough forms (do not overmix!).
  • Drop by spoonfuls over the berries in the baking dish using the back of the spoon to spread a little dough just over the open spaces (you do not have to cover the open spaces completely).
  • Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar.
  • Place the baking dish onto a baking sheet to catch any drips.
  • Bake until the topping is golden and cooked through (about 50-55 minutes, insert a skewer into the center of the coobler, if it comes out fairly clean except for the berries, then it is done).
  • Delicious!
