Homemade Blueberry Cobbler Recipe: 

I love old-fashioned desserts. This one is one of my favorites, but my mom’s recipe for classic buttermilk pie is also amazing. This recipe for Moist Carrot Cake is absolutely amazing.

This cobbler is one that I had a hard time walking away from. To me, there is nothing more delicious than a fruity dessert. I started out with a spoonful, just to taste it, and then another just to be sure. Before I could walk out the door, careful not to let it hit me on the way out…I had a bowl of this darn delicious stuff.

My one big suggestion is to be ready with a big ‘ole spoon, or bowl, or very large plate. Definitely a tall glass of milk, soy milk, or coconut milk!

    Can you use frozen blueberries?

    1. Melissa

      Sure you can. 🙂 Just substitute frozen blueberries and follow the recipe exactly as you would have with fresh.

    Can you use canned blueberries?

    1. Melissa

      You should be able to use canned blueberries with no problem. Blueberries that are in cans are usually preserved in a light syrup. I would drain the juices and follow the directions as you would with fresh or frozen. If you mean the pie filling, however, you’ll want to omit the first 4 instructions. If you think about it, come back and let us know how the substitutions work out. 🙂
