For The Filling:
1/3 c. strawberry jam
1/4 c. cornstarch
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 lbs. strawberries, hulled and quartered
For The Topping:
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. fine salt
6 tbsp. cold, unsalted butter, diced
3/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. cold, heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
vanilla ice cream, for serving
For The Filling: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Whisk together the jam, cornstarch, sugar, lemon juice, and 2 tbsp. of water in a large bowl until well combined. Add the strawberries and toss gently to coat evenly. Transfer the mixture to a 2-quart baking or gratin dish, using a spatula or the back of a large spoon to gently pack the fruit into an even layer. Set aside.
For The Topping: Pulse together the flour, 1/4 c. of the sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 3/4 c. of the cream and the vanilla and pulse until the dough just starts to come together. Do not over mix.
Spread the dough evenly over the strawberries, drizzle with the remaining 2 tbsp. cream and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbsp. sugar.
Place the cobbler on a baking sheet and bake until the topping is lightly browned and the fruit is bubbling, about 1 hour. Let the cobbler cool completely before serving, 2 to 3 hours. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
