Blueberry cobbler

Last week when the kids were so sick, Mom gave me some frozen blueberries to feed them.

The kids decided that they didn't like blueberries, so I've been slowly eating them all myself, on yogurt and mixed with cereal. I noticed we were getting low and felt bad about it, so I decided to make something that everybody would enjoy: a cobbler!

I was going to make a pie, but it looked like too much work. So I started researching cobblers.

There's a hundred bazillion types of cobblers, so I just went with my favorite tried and true recipe, and added a bit of seasoning to the blueberries to make them more like pie filling.

Blueberry cobbler recipe

3 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Juice of half a lemon, about 1 Tablespoon

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
Half a stick of butter
Juice from other half of lemon, about 1 Tablespoon

Butter 9x9 baking pan. Heat oven to 350. Toss all filling ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into baking pan.

In separate bowl, mix flour, sugar and baking powder with fork. Lightly beat egg, toss in flour mixture until it looks like flaky crumbs. Scatter over berries. Melt butter, mix with lemon juice. Drizzle over top of flour mixture until mostly covered. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned.

It turned out wonderfully, and we ate most of the pan directly after dinner. Nobody complained about eating blueberries when they were in a cobbler, that's for sure.
