This scrumptious blueberry cobbler is made with fresh or frozen blueberries and a biscuit-like topping.

The blueberry cobbler filling is lightly spiced with some ground cinnamon, and the biscuit-like topping is a snap to prepare with melted butter and milk. Add a tablespoon or two of sugar to the biscuit mixture if you like a sweetened cobbler topping. Or brush the tops of the unbaked biscuits with an egg wash mixture and sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon sugar.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup/4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, optional
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Steps to Make It

  1. Butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish or 9-inch pie plate. Heat the oven to 425 F.

  2. In a saucepan, combine 2/3 cup of granulated sugar and cornstarch, stir in water. Bring to a boil; stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute. Add blueberries and blend well.

  3. Pour blueberry mixture into the prepared baking dish or 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with 1 teaspoon melted butter.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar (if using), baking powder, and salt.

  5. Pour the milk and 3 tablespoons melted butter into a measuring cup; add to flour mixture all at once. Stir just until mixture is moistened and forms a soft dough. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the blueberries.

  6. Bake the cobbler for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Tips

  • Cover leftover fruit cobbler with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Make a blueberry cobbler extra-special with a crumble topping. Toast about 1/3 cup of chopped pecans and combine the toasted pecans with 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Mix with a fork or your fingers to make the crumble. Sprinkle over the top of the cobbler and bake as directed.

Recipe Variations

  • Replace 1 cup of the blueberries with 1 cup of fresh raspberries.
  • Replace about 2/3 cup of the blueberries with shredded apples or pears.
