Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler...a little slice of heaven IMO

So one of my friends post this recipe on my facebook wall and it looked so yummy.  It has my two favorite things in the whole wide world....strawberries and cream cheese.  How can that be a bad thing?  So I decided to make this for Easter for my family get together (I totally slacked and did not make what I originally planned on making).  Lets just say it was a huge it!  Everyone loved it and I will probably make it again.  I cannot wait until I can get freshly picked strawberries to try this with.  Fresh berries always makes it seem better.  So here is the recipe and what I did.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Cobbler

1stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 quarts whole strawberries, capped and washed (I used two pounds and I sliced them up)
4 ounces cream cheese, cut in small pieces (I used 8 oz because what use to I have with a half of thing of cream cheese.  Plus I love cream cheese.  No one seemed to complained about me double the cream cheese.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour directly over the butter in the baking dish, but do not stir.

Add the strawberries, arranging in a single layer as much as possible. Sprinkle cream cheese pieces over strawberries. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown and edges are bubbling. (Crust rises up and around the fruit, but fruit will still peek out of top.)

This is what my lovely creation looked like when all said and done.

Since I was super impatient I did not cut up the cream cheese pieces small enough and that is the only thing different I would do.  I also think this would be awesome with raspberries or blackberries.  I think I am going to try this with raspberries next. 

Let me know if you tried this recipe and how you liked it.
