Blueberry Cobbler is a sweet treat to serve to my family throughout spring and summer. My dad has always grown blueberries (and often gives the entire bush as a gift to friends who ask him about them). We had trays full of berries each summer, and I always loved that abundance of homegrown goodness in our kitchen. 🙂 My mom would make blueberry jam that I could never get enough of- and blueberry muffins, and blueberry cobbler…

When we have blueberries that happen to be more tart than sweet, my kids will ignore them pretty harshly. I usually freeze them for smoothies, but this time I decided to bake with them. The kids had no problem with the berries after this cobbler came out of the oven. Haha! Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and this tastes like summer in a bowl. Here is the recipe for this very simple family favorite!
