Blueberry Cobbler


Life sure has gotten crazy around here for the past month or so. Between deadlines, kids getting out of school, my son starting his first job, and my husband going back to work more days a week, I have been having a hard time keeping up. On top of that I had bronchitis the first of June and had to go back to the doctor last week because I was still having issues. I am feeling better for the most part but I think everything has caught up to me all at once. So here we are with the last week of June upon us. Where has the time gone? This past weekend we celebrated Father's Day at my parents house. I had bought some blueberries to make the Blueberry Pound Cake recipe but didn't have all the ingredients on hand to make it so I decided to make this cobbler.  Everyone enjoyed it and my Dad even got upset when I tried to take the rest home, so we split the leftovers. I do hope you get to try this soon, it tastes even better than it looks....I need to make this again really soon.


Add sugar, flour, baking powder and salt to a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine dry ingredients. Add shortening to the dry ingredients, use a pastry cutter to combine shortening and flour mixture. I am too cheap to buy a pastry cutter so I just used a fork. Slowly add the milk, stir to combine. 




       Pour mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan.


Add blueberries to the top


                       

Sprinkle sugar over the blueberries 



 Pour 1 cup of very hot water over the sugar.
Dot top of cobbler with 2 tablespoons of butter.

Place cobbler on a foil lined baking sheet, it may bubble over.



Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.






Blueberry Cobbler
1 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of shortening
1 cup of milk
Filling
2 pounds of fresh blueberries 
1 cup of sugar (I used 3/4 cup since I had a little less than 2 pounds of blueberries)
1 cup of hot water
2 tablespoons of butter


Start by preheating your oven to 350, and greasing a 9x13 baking pan using butter or shortening.
Add sugar, flour, baking powder and salt to a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine dry ingredients.
Add shortening to dry ingredients, use a pastry cutter to combine shortening and flour mixture. Slowly, add milk and stir to combine. Pour mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Add blueberries to the top. Sprinkle sugar over the blueberries, then pour 1 cup of very hot water over sugar. Dot top of cobbler with 2 tablespoons of butter. Place cobbler on a foil lined baking sheet, just in case it bubbles over. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
