This is a basic Cobbler recipe that my Grandmother gave me, it calls for blueberries but you can substitute other fruits and make it your own, I do it with peaches quite often as well, also add in a little cinnamon and you can make a nice apple cobbler too. The secret in this recipe is the crumble.

FILLING:
6 cups fresh-picked blueberries
1 cup fresh peaches, diced into 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp grated lemon zest
2 T fresh lemon juice

CRUMBLE:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup CHILLED butter, cut into 1/2" thick slices

Make the crumble breaking down the butter into smaller pieces with a fork (I use a pastry blender for this) let chill until mixture is crumbly. Make the filling and pour into a large cast iron skillet or baking dish.

Bake around 45 minutes at 375-400 or until top is lightly browned. Don't get the top too brown as it will continue to brown after it is removed. Serve warm.

I love the simplicity of this cobbler idea with a classic struesel crumb topping. Definitely a winner Carter.

Ill use this preparation method regularly
First heat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter should be melt in a 9 x 9 inch size baking dish.
Blend both flour, baking powder, sugar, and milk.
Ad batter in baking dish over the butter. Spray fruit on top of the batter, don't stir. Have to bake it at least for 1 hour or until golden brown.
