The other day my husband walked in with a bunch of fresh blueberries from Whole Foods.
He said, "when I walked past their display in the window...I simply couldn't resist bringing some home."
~ It's spontaneous decisions like this (and the fact that it's produce...not kittens) that keeps me MADLY in love with this man.~
Anyway, let me say right off of the bat...these photos of this Blueberry Cobbler are not made with those aforementioned berries. Sigh.
Those...a mere memory.
You see when we made this Blueberry Cobbler Recipe the first time (with the fresh blueberries) it was so unbelievably delicious, it lasted no time at all!
There's something about Fresh Blueberry Baked Goods (with fourteen inches of snow on the ground) that demands urgency when it comes to getting your fair share!
The Blueberry Cobbler was such a hit... I decided to make it again... but using frozen blueberries from Trader Joe's that were occupying space in my freezer.
Once the blueberries thawed, I followed the directions exactly...the only difference (albeit a big one) was that the frozen berries yielded two cups (not three cups like the recipe calls for.)
So while there's no more exciting thing in life than scoring fresh, sweet blueberries in January...
(and it's sad how much that statement stems from the deepest depths of my heart...)
This scaled down...much less expensive version...is also out of this world good!
(Serving suggestion...Vanilla ICE CREAM!)
