Not So Portable Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler
by McGonaGirl & Hermi2
Ginny Weasley had been late to class far too often she'd run, huffing and puffing, into every class, no matter how far or close the next classroom was from her current classroom. So Professor McGonagal gave her detention.
You see, Ginny is the youngest of the Weasley clan, and the only girl. Her mother, a very clucking maternal sort of woman, packed her bags for her before the start of school. She'd been teaching Ginny to bake cobblers, and not wanting the girl to forget her lessons, thoughtfully packed all the ingredients she'd need to practice. Unfortunately, everything including a small oven! was packed into Ginny's bookbag, which was enchanted and could hold any number of items. Mrs. Weasley got carried away and even included a small refrigerator in there!
Alas, poor Ginny hadn't had anywhere to put all these things, so she simply carried them in her bookbag, which was very, very heavy ... and when asked, she offered this explanation to Professor McGonagal:
After Ginny had explained the problem, the sentence was commuted ... to baking the cobbler she'd been taught to make! "Then you can remove the chiller and the oven, and that should lighten the pack some and we'll have a treat, don't you think, dear?" Professor McGonagal was very pragmatic!
Heat the oven to 350°F / 175°C. Roll out the chilled dough to ¼" / ¾ cm thick, and cut out into small rounds with a biscuit or cookie cutter. Place over the fruit in the cakepan or baking dish without overlapping the pieces so that there are gaps for the fruit to vent and bubble up.
Brush the dough with heavy cream, then sprinkle with additional white sugar. Place the dish on a foil-lined tray (the filling with bubble out and make a mess), then put into the heated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling out of the holes. Let the dish sit for 10 minutes before dishing it up.
Serves 4 to 6; you can serve with vanilla ice cream, if you wish, or unsweetened whipped cream. Or serve it cold, if you wish.
