so simple blueberry cobbler
i shouldn't even post these horrible pictures. you would have been better off just using your imagination. oh well, it looks funky, but this is one super tasty and super easy blueberry cobbler. let's cut to the chase and here you go. first, preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. walk away. get you a 8x8 dish and dump in some frozen blueberries, no need to thaw. i dunno, three cups or so. now, mix a teaspoon or two of either vanilla or almond extract(i use vanilla) and stir to mix with the berries. okay, in another bowl mix one cup all purpose flour, one cup sugar, pinch of salt and one egg. now, with your hands, squeeze, stir, squeeze, stir, mixing making sure the egg is thoroughly distributed. don't be afraid, squeeze the crap out the stuff all the while mixing making a streusel-y topping. you still will end up with some that won't be so crumbly, kinda dry, no biggie we are getting ready to fix that. sprinkle the streusel mixture all over your blueberries evenly as possible. okay, the kicker, go nuke a stick of butter and pour this all over the top of your cobbler. bake for about 40 minutes till bubbly and brown. cool long enough, so that it want burn your mouth and grab a spoon. holy moly! i do this with peaches(almond extract), too. you can use any fresh or frozen fruit. just imagine fresh blackberries....lordy.
that little bowl up top is mine, more whipped cream than cobbler. oh, that is the good stuff, too. real cream whipped with a sprinkling of homemade vanilla sugar and a shot of homemade vanilla extract. yum.
so, once again, excuse the down right embarassing pictures, but please try this simple cobbler recipe when you get a chance. you just can't go wrong. enjoy.
