Blueberry Cobbler
(Sara's kids favorite dessert)

For the filling
½ cup granulated Sugar
1 Tbsp. Cornstarch
Pinch Ground cinnamon
Pinch of Kosher Salt
6 cups Fresh Blueberries
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

For the topping
1 cup All-Purpose flour
½ cup granulated Sugar
1½ tsp. Baking Powder
¼ tsp. Salt
⅓ cup Heavy Cream
¼ cup Unsalted Butter, melted
½ tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
2 tsp. granulated Sugar(for sprinkling)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter an 8 inch square baking dish or skillet.

Whisk the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl. Add the blueberries and mix gently until evenly coated. Add lemon juice and mix to combine.
Transfer the berry mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish (can also use a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate or 10-inch cast iron skillet).

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk the heavy cream, melted butter and vanilla together in a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined and no dry pockets remain.

Assemble and Bake
Scoop the dough into 8 equal pieces and place on the filling, evenly spaced (they should not be touching). Sprinkle each mound of dough evenly with the sugar.

Bake until the filling is bubbling and the top is golden brown and cooked through, 35 to 45 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for at least 20 minutes; serve warm or at room temperature. The blueberry cobbler can be stored, covered, at room temperature for up to 3 days.

2/3 cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons chilled Unsalted Butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 Tbsp. cold Water

2 tablespoons Sour Cream

Assorted fresh Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries) 4 pints
1/3 cup (about) Apricot Jam

10 minutes to soften. Bring 1/4 cup cream to simmer in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Add white chocolate; stir until melted and smooth. Add gelatin mixture; stir to dissolve. Mix in lime zest. Chill until cold and beginning to thicken but not set, stirring often, about 30-45 minutes.

Beat sugar, sour cream and remaining 1/2 cup cream to medium-stiff peaks in medium bowl. Fold whipped cream mixture into white chocolate mixture. Spoon mousse into cooled crust. Chill until mousse sets, about 4

Decoratively arrange berries/fruit over the top of the mousse. Melt jam in small saucepan over low heat, stirring often. Brush enough jam over berries to glaze. Enjoy!
