Hilton Head Here We Come

My vacation offically begins today, although we don't fly-out until this weekend. Hilton Head, South Carolina is the destination and we are really looking forward to a much needed vacation! Everyone keeps telling us better take a vacation now because when the baby comes it will be much, much harder to get away!

I'll have photos to post when we return! Until then here's a recipe that's sure to be a favorite. It's blueberry season in Missouri, be sure and choose local blueberries from a local you-pick berry farm.

Summer Blueberry Cobbler
1 cobbler top recipe (See Below)
2 qt blueberries
1-1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs lemon juice
3 tbs butter

2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 salt
1-1/2 cups heavy cream

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir in the cream. Knead by hand for about 30 seconds and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface until about 1/4 inch thick. Cover the top of the berries with the dough.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except the butter in a non reactive bowl and place the mixture in a casserole dish. Dot the top of the berries with the butter, place the top over the berries.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until crust has become a chestnut brown color.
