Blueberries Abound. Hence, Blueberry Cobbler

Posted by Hilary on July 6, 2010

My dad and I went blueberry picking at LeDuc’s and made off with some major blueberries.

I tried my hand at my first ever cobbler. It was a rousing success, so here are the details:

Filling

3 cups fresh blueberries

1/3 cup lemonade or orange juice

2 heaping tsp cornstarch

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Crust

2/3 cup flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup butter or earth balance

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions

1. Mix the ingredients for the filling so that the blueberries are coated uniformly. Put the filling in the bottom of an 8 x 8 or slightly larger pan.

2. In a small-ish bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

3. In a larger bowl cream together the sugar and earth balance/ butter. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients from step 2. Drop the batter onto the filling by the spoonful and then spread it evenly with a spatula.

4. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Let cool for long enough that the filling sets up, but not so long that the cobbler gets cold. Eat!
