Blueberry Hill Cobbler

You will definitely find your thrill with this Blueberry Hill Cobbler. So fruity and yummy. This was a family favorite when I served it. It disappeared very quickly as seconds were requested by two people. We love it served hot with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients:

4 quarts of blueberries

1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided

4 heaping Tablespoons of cornstarch

1 1/2 cups of flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

6 Tablespoons of cold butter, cut into pieces

3/4 cups plus 4 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

Vanilla Ice Cream, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick spray. Wash the blueberries in a colander. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cornstarch. Gently add that to the berries and combine. Place blueberries in your prepared pan. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add butter to the flour mixture and cut in the butter using a pastry blender, or with two knives or grate frozen butter. It all works. The flour should resemble fine crumbs. Pour in whipping cream and mix to form dough. The dough will be very sticky. Drop by teaspoonfuls on top of the berries. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Bake for 50 minutes or until top is brown and the blueberries are bubbling. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.

Berry Good Cobbler

It’s berry season in Florida. I am not a big pie lover but I do love cobblers. It’s the crust thing. This cobbler packs a big punch with lots of berry taste and a nice sweet crunchy top. So yummy warm with a big scoop of ice cream. I used 3 different types of berries in this recipe but one kind, two, three or more different kinds of berries would work. You decide what berry flavor combinations you want.

Ingredients:
8 cups of berries (I used a combination of strawberries, blueberries,and blackberries)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided
3 heaping Tablespoons of corn starch
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
6 Tablespoons of butter, chilled and cut into pieces
3/4 cup plus 3 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 9 pan with nonstick spray. In a separate bowl, place berries and pour the lemon juice on top of them. Combine sugar and cornstarch, add to berries and stir gently. Place berries in the 9 x 9 pan. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add butter cutting in with pastry blender or two knives. Continue to cut butter in flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Add heavy whipping cream and combine to form a dough. It will be sticky. Drop by teaspoons full on top of berries. Sprinkle dough topping with 1/4 cup sugar. Bake for 50 minutes or until top is brown and berries are bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy!
