Small Blueberry cobblers
4 cup blueberries, washed
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup uncooked cornmeal
2 Tablespoons sugar, granulated
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
1/3 cup fat-free skim milk
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place two muffin liners in each of 12 muffin holes. (You can use 12 oven-proof custard cups, too.)
In a medium bowl, toss blueberries with lemon juice, lemon zest, powdered sugar and cornstarch; mix well.
Fill each muffin hole with 1/3 cup of blueberry mixture.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, granulated sugar, salt and baking powder.
Cut cold butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter or back of a fork; work mixture into a coarse meal.
Add milk and incorporate until just combined.
Knead dough five or six times with your hand until dough just comes together.
Roll dough into a ball on a flat work surface (lightly sprinkle surface with flour if dough feels sticky); divide dough into 12 even, smaller balls. To make round crusts, press down on each ball with palm of your hand or a spatula until it’s large enough to completely cover each cobbler; place flattened dough over prepared muffin holes.
Bake until crust turns golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Yields 1 cobbler per serving.
