Blueberry Cobbler

Ok, so I know today is Halloween and I should be posting something spooky and/or incredibly gross… The problem is that I’m completely ready for the holiday to be over and want to jump into some incredibly delicious and easy desserts. Blueberry cobbler is one dish from my childhood that fills me with nostalgia. I can remember driving to a local diner with my grandma and ordering a slice (er… serving?) of warm blueberry cobbler topped with vanilla bean ice cream… and two spoons. Splitting that cobbler always made me feel extra special.

When I first tried Stahlbush Island Farms frozen berries in my blueberry sauce I fell head over heels in love. There were so many factors that played in to my new found fondness. The packaging is amazing, the price was right, but most importantly the berries were INCREDIBLE. I had no idea that frozen fruit could turn out so great in a recipe.

Top your warm cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little whipped cream for the ultimate dessert experience. We even like to heat it in the morning and enjoy it for breakfast. The sweet dough combined with the blueberries and cinnamon is pure heaven.

Luckily my five year old recently insisted that I take a big ol’ chomp out of the perfect apple he picked from our local grocer. It was AMAZING. […]
