Port Strawberry Boozy Cobbler

I found this cobbler recipe on the Internet from Suellen Anderson @ dessert.food.com. The original recipe wanted peaches but I had a batch of ripe, sweet strawberries and some Port for my trip to Portugal I wanted to use, so I swapped fruits and I cut back on sugar very much. It’s truly GREAT served warm, with some (unsweetened) vanilla gelato and might you want it, some more Port in a glass as a pairing :)
