3 - 4 TbspMilk/Water cold
2TbspCoarse or Sparkling Sugar
Vanilla Ice Cream
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
Wash and dry the blueberries. Add the remaining filling ingredients to the berries and toss well. Divide into 6 (or 4 if you want larger portions) ramekins (note) and set aside.
Mix the dry ingredients - flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder- together. Cut the cold butter into it until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs (see video). You can do this in a food processor / blender as well. Pour cold milk over the mix – start with 3 tbsp and add more if needed. Mix gently until all the flour is wet and begins to form a sticky lump.
Scoop the dough into small portions and place over the blueberries. If using coarse sugar sprinkle some on top of the dough.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbly.
Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream.
You can make on large cobbler as well. In this case increase the cook time to 30 or 40 minutes.
The topping should not cover the berries completely.
Do not fill the baking dishes to the rim. Place the baking dish on a cookie sheet to catch any drips.
