Lemon-blueberry Cobbler Pie
  • For the filling:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 pints (4 cups) blueberries
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 pre-baked pie crust (9-inch)
  • For the topping:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. lemon peel
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp. melted butter
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2/3 cup sugar, the lemon peel and cinnamon. Add the blueberries and lemon juice; stir to combine.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the dry topping ingredients (1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp. lemon peel, and 1/2 tsp. salt). Add the egg and 1 tsp. lemon juice and toss until crumbly.
  4. Spoon the filling into the pre-baked pie crust. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture with the crumbly topping. Drizzle the topping with the melted butter.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the topping is bubbly and browned. Excellent with a scoop of lemon sorbet or, the old stand-by, vanilla ice cream.
I actually found this recipe in a magazine but I made quite a few changes (the topping is different and I added a lot more lemon!) I made it for a cooking challenge that some of us do on another site I visit - it's a bit like Iron Chef where ingredients are chosen and we have to come up with recipes to fit the ingredients. This is so sweet and delicious! I bet it would be lovely with a scoop of lemon sorbet. Enjoy!
