I love this recipe, because it includes easy ingredients that I bet you already have on hand. And, you can use frozen blueberries! We always stock up on blueberries from Costco, so our freezer has a few bags.

Friends, how are you holding up? From the moment I started this post a few days ago, when I made this blueberry cobbler for company, until now, the world has spun so quickly.

From caution to quarantining at home, our lives have changed so much.

What hasn’t changed, though, is that I work from home, and I’m grateful for my online community. We can hug each other from afar!

We also still have a strong need for connection, and perspective, even in the chaos.

What defines a cobbler?

Cobbler is a dish made of fruit or a savory filling, poured into a large baking dish. It’s covered with a biscuit dough on top, and then baked!

Mostly we think of cobblers in the United States as a berry or a sweet dessert. Although they are not too sweet!

Can you freeze cobbler?

Yes, you can freeze cobblers.

Bake the cobbler, allow to cool, then cover tightly in plastic wrap. Add foil on top and freeze for up to one month.

It’s easy to reheat in a 350-degree oven.

Quite delicious for your family or company!

We served it with Vanilla Bourbon Gelato from our local gelato company! I worry about small businesses in this time … it makes me so sad to think about what is happening. We try to buy their gelato in the grocery stores every chance we can!

In the meantime, make a 9×13 pan of cobbler, sit outside by the fire, and invite your neighbors!
