Blueberry Cobbler

The Best Blueberry Cobbler

Not much beats hot blueberry cobbler with some vanilla bean ice cream.  Well, maybe eating it while watching football with a big cozy blanket 🙂

Cobbler really is a fabulous dessert for the fall, it’s still easy and delicious and isn’t high maintenance at all! Plus, you can switch out the fruit to mix things up.  Feel free to use peaches or apples in the recipe, play with the spices or even add oats to the topping!

The Story:

I have a bizarre connection with food.

Certain dishes and flavors remind me of people, places, emotions and times in my life.  Some I look forward to eating and others I now avoid like the plague.  Burgers takes me back to my childhood, thai food reminds me of a dinner in Boston, the crunch of Gold Fish stresses me out because that’s all I could manage to have for lunch on crazy college days.  Cobbler–no matter how much sugar I add– is now bittersweet.

Blueberry Cobbler


4-5 C. blueberries, fresh or frozen (I used 2 small frozen packages)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon. cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup water, boiling


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a small casserole dish. (Not a 9X13, something smaller, like a 2 qt. pan)
2. Combine blueberries, sugars, lemon juice, lemon zest and cornstarch.
3. Pour into pan and bake for 10 minutes.
4. While baking the blueberries, in a large bowl combine flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add butter and use a pastry cutter to combine until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water and stir until combined.
5. Cover blueberries with topping and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar over the top if desired.
6. Bake for about 30 minutes or until topping is done.
7. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

It really was delicious.
