Old Fashioned Blueberry Cobbler

Fruit desserts are my absolute favorite kinds of dessert. Give me all the tarts, pies, and cobblers!! I like them warm with vanilla bean ice cream or chilled whipped cream melting over the top. Pure heaven.

My cousin AND another sweet neighbor brought me blueberries this year. Locally grown blueberries from one county over and the most delicious you can imagine. I could not resist attempting a cobbler. I am not a baker; I prefer the leniency of cooking, but I had to give it a try. I prayed this would turn out as decadent as I hoped. Guess what? It did!

Wash approximately 6 cups of blueberries and put into a large mixing bowl.

Sprinkle with 1/3C sugar, 1/3C brown sugar, 2.5tbl fresh lemon juice, 1tbl corn starch, and 1/2tsp cinnamon. Stir gently, let sit for 5 minutes and stir again. Pour into oval baking dish (~3 quart).

Whisk together 1.5C flour, 1/3C brown sugar, 1/3C sugar, 1.5tsp baking powder, and 1/2tsp salt. Chop up 1 stick of butter and using a Kitchen Aid mixer, combine the butter with the dry mixture until it becomes crumbly. Now pour in 1/3C boiling water and stir to combine.

I used my hands to press the dough evenly over the top of the blueberries.

Mix 2tbl sugar and 1tsp cinnamon together and sprinkle generously over the top.

Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Try not to go back for seconds (or thirds!).
