Blueberry Cobbler

It's almost like the peach cobbler, only with blueberries instead. Don't forget to put some foil under it. This WILL bubble over and make a big mess.

Fruit Mixture
5 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
9 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons boiling water
2 tablespoons white sugar


Preheat oven to 425F

Rinse the blueberries and spread them on a towel to remove some of the water. Remove any stems that you see.

In a large bowl,;combine blueberries, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 9 x 11 glass baking dish.

Bake for 10 minutes. 

While the berries are baking, combine flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to mix the butter into the flour mixture until it's crumbly. Stir in the water just until combined. 

Remove the blueberries from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them (I spread it out with a spoon). Sprinkle your cobbler with 2 tablespoons of sugar and return to the oven. Bake about 30 minutes until the topping is golden.
