Tips
  • Prepare this classic fruit cobbler with 4 cups sliced peaches in place of the blueberries, and add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Or use half blueberries and half peaches for a yummy combination!
  • This dessert is delicious with fresh berries! Don’t be tempted to use frozen blueberries for this recipe—they can become mushy when cooked.
