Blueberry cobbler

I was in a baking mood tonight so I dug through the freezer looking for some blueberries and whipped them up into individual portions of warm blueberry cobbler. Yum! I found these little baking dishes at an estate sale this summer and as it turns out they work wonderfully for little desserts. You probably can't see but the outside of them is a beautiful pale blue. I had mine with whipped cream. By candle light. It doesn't get any better than that:>)
Here is the receipe if you want to make your own:
Heat oven to 400. Blend 1/2 cup sugar, 1 TBSP cornstarch, 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen) and 1 tsp lemon juice. Cook , stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil & stir 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 2 quart casserole. Keep fruit mixture hot in oven while preparing biscuit topping.
Measure 1 cup flour, 1 Tbsp. sugar, 1 1/2 teasp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt into bowl. Add 3 Tbsp. shortening and cut in, add 1/2 cup milk and mix until dough forms a ball. Drop dough by spoonsful onto hot fruit.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until biscuit topping is golden brown. Serve warm and, if desired, with cream.:>)

  9. What could be better than warm blueberry cobbler on a cold day!
    I like to go to my freezer too for some inspiration and usually I find something that begs to be baked up into a scrumptious dish!

  10. Ok, I need the recipe! (please) That looks so gooooood!

  11. You sre a risk blog to me! I want some of that NOW!
    Crap, I guess I'll have to go make it.

  12. I LOVE blueberry cobbler! Just looking at these make my mouth water! I think looking at them here is safer than me baking them. I would eat them all be myself.

  13. Oh yummy. It just looks delicious.

  14. That looks and sounds absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I will certainly try this one:)


  15. Kathleen,

    I used a stamp for the fleur de leis and filled it in so you could see the brush strokes. For the "W" I printed out an image and transfered it onto the plate with carbon paper.....it is worth noting that kijsa (who freehands everything) wrinkled her nose at both suggestions :)

    Have a blessed day!

  16. Mmmm, sounds delicious. What a great way to serve it.

  17. Yum! A scoop of ice-cold homemade ice cream would be the way to top it for me. I love cobbler! Think I'd better make some. Thanks for sharing. ~Adrienne~

  18. Cobbler of any kind is my favorite! The more topping, the more stuff, the better! It looks wonderful!! Blessings... Polly


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
