Back to Blueberries

Before the summer slips away, I want to share another great blueberry recipe.

It has two things I love, a cast iron pan and blueberries. When you have a hankering for cobbler and you want it fast, this is your recipe. Just stir the ingredients together, pop it into the oven and you will have a dessert to build a dream around. I suggest whipped cream with cinnamon or French Vanilla ice cream melting over a piping hot serving. Just forget supper for one night and indulge.

I named the cobbler after one of my favorite children’s books, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey. Anyone remember!
