The fresh strawberries in this recipe make it the perfect Summertime cobbler. It uses in-season fruit to make a simple cobbler recipe that’s bursting with flavor. Then the cream cheese adds an unexpected creamy element to make the dish even more delicious and unique. The pockets of cream cheese are distributed over the Cream Cheese Cobbler recipe so every few bites you’ll get a creamy spoonful of it. 

Lately, I’ve been experimenting a lot with new ideas for cobbler recipes. It’s just such an easy concept that you can add a variety of flavors to. Whether it’s a fruit cobbler like this one or an Oreo Cobbler, it’s hard to go wrong with the dough base and sweet gooey topping. These family-friendly recipes have made huge cobbler fans out of everybody in our house.

To make this Cream Cheese Cobbler recipe into an even more indulgent dessert top it off with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. You can also mix heavy whipping cream into a Cool Whip to put over the ice cream. It’s the ultimate sweet, creamy, and buttery treat!



  • Prep time: Preheat your oven, and prep a 9×13 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray so that the dough doesn’t stick to the pan. 
  • Dough: Put the stick butter on a microwave-safe dish and melt butter at 50 percent power. Pour the butter over the baking dish. Whisk together the milk, flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Pour the batter in a single layer over the butter. 
  • Strawberries: Slice the tops off of your 4 cups strawberries, then cut them in half. Place the strawberry halves over the pastry dough.
  • Cream cheese mixture: Take a package cream cheese from the fridge. Unwrap the 8-ounce package cream cheese and microwave it until it’s warm. Mix the cream cheese with one egg, brown sugar, and a teaspoon vanilla extract. Then spoon cream cheese pieces over the cobbler. You want to distribute them evenly over the Strawberry Cobbler in small clumps. 
  • Bake: Put the dish in your preheated oven and bake until bubbly and golden brown, about 40-45 minutes.

  • Berries: You can use different kinds of berries in this cobbler recipe. Try making a raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, or blueberry cream cheese cobbler. You could also use a combination to make a mixed berry cobbler. 
  • Flour: Try experimenting with the original recipe by using whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour. Or, if you want some added nutrients from the wheat flour but still prefer the taste of white flour dough, you can do both. Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1 cup wheat flour in the dry ingredients. 
  • Lemon Berry: To make Lemon Berry pastries, add some fresh lemon juice to the Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler. Just mix a tablespoon of lemon juice into the pastry dough. 
  • Crumb topping: To make a streusel topping combine 2 tablespoons cold butter, ¼ cup flour, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon with a pastry cutter. Once the ingredients are mixed into coarse crumbs, sprinkle them over the top of the cobbler. 



  • Serve: Because of the cream cheese, you shouldn’t leave this recipe at room temperature for more than 2 hours. 
  • Store: You can wrap Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler in plastic wrap to store in the fridge for up to 1 week. 
  • Freeze: Once the cobbler cools, seal and freeze it for up to 3 months. To reheat the cobbler let it thaw in the fridge then put it in a 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes until warmed through and bubbly.

  1. This came out really strange. The images on this recipe do not match the steps. But that aside this came out very dark and chewy. Very savory which was surprising because of the 2 cups of sugar. The egg and cream cheese mixture sort of curdled when it was baking. Weird. Sadly going to toss it out. But I was just trying to use up some very ripe strawberries so not a huge loss. Bummed. It sounded good anyway.

    1. Ah, Kim! I’m so sorry this recipe didn’t work out. Hopefully, there is another recipe that will work out better for you.

    1. Very good. It turned out. I took it over for a family gathering and it was all gone. Everyone in my family loved it.definitely will make again.

  2. Made this for my wife and I today, and we loved it… thanks for thinking of unique recipes and sharing your diverse desserts. I also love the tips, storage and variations!
