It never occurred to me that I could bake a cobbler in my slow cooker until I saw some recipes and decided to try my favorite fruity dessert recipe. It took a bit of experimenting, but the tasty results are "berry" well worth it.

Plump blueberries and a fluffy topping star in this pretty, refreshing salad from the kitchen of Beverly Preston. “Mom's blueberry salad was served at every holiday and celebration,” says Beverly's daughter, Sharon Hoefert from Greendale, Wisconsin. “Now, her grandchildren request it.”
"Boy…I never thought of putting these two together. What a flavor!" That's what I hear most often after folks try this pie I "invented" one day when I was short of peaches for a full crust. —Sue Thumma, Shepherd, Michigan
I make this family favorite every year for a gathering at my sister's, where the recipe is known as "Uncle Mike's pie." I use only fresh berries, apples and rhubarb that I grow myself. —Michael Powers, New Baltimore, Virginia
We live in blueberry country, and this pie is a perfect way to showcase the luscious berries. A neighbor made this pie for us when we had a death in the family several years ago, and she shared the recipe, too. Our whole family enjoys it.
This recipe came from my grandmother. As children, my sister and I remember going to Pennsylvania for blueberry picking. Mother taught us to pick only perfect berries, and those gems went into this wonderful recipe.
