Don't Get the Summertime Blues... Make Blueberry Cobbler!

You know those days where all you want is something sweet? Okay, well for me that is almost every day but I usually go for a Hershey Kiss versus a XL bowl of ice cream topped with hot fudge. So the other day when that sweet tooth took over and there were no sweets to be found I went into full Betty Crocker mode. After rampaging the kitchen and pantry I found the big bag of blueberries and instantly my mind went to cobbler- carbs and sugar!

Cobbler probably takes everyone to the thoughts of grandmothers, so instantly I went looking for her recipe. I pulled out the lost art of my recipe box to start digging, and yes every recipe card is hand written by my Aunt which is absolutely amazing. Well I couldn't find it, so then I started into the recipe books that my grandmother's recipe hid in. Then I really couldn't find it and the summertime blues sunk in! So I texted my Aunt to ask for the recipe because I was bound and determined. Like every grandmother it was the recipe in her head that never got written down but luckily was passed down (insert happy dance here).

My inner Betty Crocker got to cooking and the hardest part was waiting for it to come out of the oven! Feel free to taste test the ice cream in the mean time - my pictures clearly showed that I did. When it's all done baking cut a piece while it is bubbling and hot. Put a big piece of cobbler in a bowl and throw on top a big, heaping scoop of ice cream. Mm mm yummy this recipe is also fat free!

1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 TSP of Baking Powder
1  cup Sugar, and a palm full
1/2 cup milk
1 stick butter
2 cups Blueberries, fresh or frozen
Vanilla Ice Cream

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
2. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder and sugar. Whisk together
3. Pour the milk in the mixing bowl with the flour mixture. Use spatula to stir together until you have a batter
4. Melt the butter in a separate bowl. Pour the butter in a 13 x 9 glass pan and make sure every inch is covered in butter- the healthy part
5. Pour the flour/sugar/milk mixture over the butter- Do NOT stir
6. Pour the blueberries over the flour/sugar/mixture- Do NOT stir
7. Take that palm full of sugar and sprinkle over the top of the blueberries
8. Put in the oven for 38-45 minutes and let the magical smell take over your house

Enjoy, and if you have any questions let me know!
