TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed

"I found the lemon flavour a bit overwhelming. Otherwise this is a great recipe. I liked the biscuit topping, especially since it is a lot lower fat than the usual cobbler topping.

I also cut the sugar back a bit, since I don't usually like things too sweet."

"I was excited to see this recipe as my diabetic husband LOVES blueberries. However, I will not be making it. The carb count is more than half of what he is allowed for a meal! Also, FYI, 45 grams of carbs is 3 starches not 2. The ratio is 15 grams of carb is equal to 1 starch. This recipe would be out of range for most diabetics."

"This is delicious...surprised me that the dough was so thin, but baked up beautifully. This is a COBBLER though for those thinking it's not sweet enough or so on..not a crisp or a crumble so expect it to be more biscuit/pancake like and less sweet, and to want ice cream or whipped cream...although I could happily eat this one without!"

"This was ok, but not something I will make again. I did make changes though, by substituting whole wheat "white" flour, and splenda instead of sugar, but the topping was way too thick for our taste. It was mostly breading with a little blueberry "jam". without ice cream on top, we wouldn't have eaten it."

"I cut back on the cornstarch to 2 T, and still thought the filling was a bit too stiff. Could be that some varieties of blueberries are juicer than others, or it could be that I substituted stevia for the sugar (or both). I forgot the lemon peel, but it was still good. I'd add a tad more buttermilk to the crust next time because it was a little hard to spread over the berries. However, my husband enjoyed it very much with no-added-sugar vanilla ice cream."

"The blueberries were extremely tasty and although moist didn't run all over as some other recipes have done. The biscuit topping was very nice - didn't get soggy. The only problem I had was quite probably with my own equipment. To achieve golden brown I ended up baking for 43 minutes. My family truly enjoyed this dish and my 4 year old grandson who doesn't like blueberries cooked asked for seconds."

"I am a diabetic. I have been looking for a cobbler to remove the sugar from. I will leave out the sugar from the blueberries because they really don't need it. I will replace the flour with King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour because it is an albino whole wheat flour that tastes sweeter than regular whole wheat flour. I will replace the sugar in the cobbler with Splenda because sugar is a problem for me. This will bring the calories down to 155 calories per serving. Those are my favorite spices and I love the flavor of real Wisconsin low fat buttermilk and butter in a limited amount. THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!!!"

"This was fantastic. My husband and I both loved it. I used light butter to cut back on the fat a bit (I cut the butter up and put it in the freezer for approximately 10 min. to keep it from getting too warm during preparation). I used a little less lemon zest (probably around 1.5 teasp.) because I only had one lemon, but I thought the zest gave it a light lemony flavor that was excellent and not at all overpowering."
