"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 made only 1/2 recipe. I omitted the cinnamon and nutmeg. I cut down on the sugar added to the blueberries. Next time, I think I will cut the sugar a little more. This was very tasty. Thank you for sharing this good recipe!"

"If a recipe doesn't fit your lifestyle, stop criticizing it and don't make the recipe. Find another recipe. This happens to be very good."
