Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Your Own Strawberry Cobbler

Well, I bought 2 quarts of Tidwell strawberries to take on our Memorial Day weekend/anniversary trip this weekend. However, Abe has to work tomorrow so camping is cancelled. How do you take a small edge off disappointment? Kitchen Therapy!!! You seriously have to make these. And I want to thank my friend, Susan B (who opted to move away from me), for these awesome covered cast iron ramekins! They're the perfect color for the perfect individual cobbler.

Makes 4 Cobblers
1 Cobbler = 3 PointsPlus®

2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Splenda granulated
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
¾ cup fat-free milk
½ tsp vanilla
Dollop of fat-free whipped topping, optional

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Lightly spray 4 (6 oz) ramekins. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.

Spoon strawberries into each ramekin.

In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, Splenda, baking powder and salt until well combined.

Stir in the milk and vanilla until just combined.

Spoon mixture over the top of the strawberries.

Bake for 18 – 22 minutes.

Allow to cool for @2 hours and then serve either 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.

MY SPIN: I added a few 'shakes' of cinnamon into the batter, but that's a personal choice. You can also top with a good vanilla bean ice cream. If you do use ice cream, you'll have to figure out the P+ for it.

It WAS good!
Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus® value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
