Fruit cobbler is definitely one of my favorite desserts to make, besides chocolate chip cookies, when I’m in a pinch and need something quick. I make peach cobbler every year, and this year after picking blueberries, I decided to switch up our recipe to make a scrumptious blueberry cobbler

This blueberry cobbler recipe is so easy; and it uses really simple ingredients. Once it’s mixed up, just let your oven do the rest.

Being that it’s made with blueberries, the only prep you have to do to the berries is wash them and dry them. No stemming, slicing, or anything else.

Wash and pat dry the blueberries. Place them in a medium to large sized mixing bowl; I love my handled bowl for this.
