Sunday Funday ~ My Blueberry Pie

Real Estate Agent with Front Gate Real Estate Broker 11085

Thanks to a generous out-of-state seller and the perfect timing of Blueberries on vine by Pat Starnesblueberry season, I've had the opportunity to make several blueberry cobblers for friends and family to enjoy.


One of my vacant listings has two mature blueberry bushes and the time is right for harvest. At the sellers insistence, these delicious and nutritious blueberries have found their way into smoothies, yogurt and pies, instead of dying on the vine or being left for the birds.


My grandmother shared her easy cobbler recipe with me when I was in my early 20s. I'm not big on baking, but every now and then I prepare a cobbler, and there's no better time to do it than when fresh fruit is plentiful.


This is my grandmothers simple and easy recipe. I usually make it with canned peaches, but it is equally good with most other fruits.



Grandma's Cobbler Pie

Mix 1/2 stick butter, softened, and 1/2 cup sugar together in baking dish.

Blend together until they form small crumbles (or a paste)

Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup flour, mix completely. Add 1/2 cup milk

This forms the crust.

Pour desired fruit (apples, peaches, or blueberries) on top of crust. 

If using fresh fruit, add up to 1/2 cup sugar to sweeten fruit.

Bake at 350 degrees until done or crust is brown. Crust will rise to the top while baking.

Recipe may be doubled.

* For one of my cobblers, I used both fresh blueberries and 1/2 can crushed pineapples. Yum!

Pat, have tried to grow a blueberry bush, but was unsuccessful.  Nothing like fresh blueberries, and now the smoothie sounds really good.

Thank you for that wonderful easy recipe.  We are big blueberry fans, and bushes do not grow here in our I have to be contented with the organic ones that come from our market. A

Pat, this reminded me of when I was growing up and my parents and I used to go out in the woods where wild blueberries were growing and we would pick them..... they were a bit tart compared to farm grown, Endre

My daughter in law commented last night Endre Barath, Jr. that my blueberries were tart, as well. That's what sugar is for!! :)

So glad you were able to put that fruit to good use. I had an REO property that had a white peach tree that was bearing during my listing period. I picked fruit and baked and froze peaches galore. Loved that listing.

We closed this morning, Debbie Reynolds so no more blueberries for me! The buyer will have plenty though as the fruit is plentiful. I estimate at least 5-6 gallons!

Oh my! That was a generous seller, Pat and what a treat you turned them in to as well! I could sink my teeth into some blueberry pie now and will save this recipe - sounds yummy!

Hope you have a great week ahead!
