Just in Time for Summer – Blueberry Cobbler!

Blueberry Cobbler

A friend of ours has a couple of blueberry bushes absolutely loaded with blueberries this year, so she gave us a gallon-sized bag full of fresh blueberries.  I was wanting to do a blueberry crumb cake, but came across an easy cobbler recipe and decided to try that instead.  The cobbler turned out so well that I thought I'd share it with our readers, so they can enjoy it as well. FRUIT COBBLER 1-1/2 cups baking mix (I used Jiffy, but you could use any other brand) 4 cups blueberries 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg (I omitted this one) 1/2 cup milk 1 egg 3 tbsp. shortening, melted Preheat oven to 400* F. Grease well a 1 quart baking dish. Combine blueberries, sugar, and cinnamon.  Pour into dish.  Mix remaining ingredients until blended and drop by tablespoon onto fruit.  Bake 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350*F and bake 10 minutes longer or until fruit is tender. Your favorite fruit may be substituted for blueberries. ... [ Read More ]
