Blueberry Biscuit Cobbler

With a crisp biscuit topping and warm blueberry filling, this home-style cobbler sure doesn't taste light—but it is! —Mary E. Relyea, Canastota, New York

    This was a quick and easy dessert to make and was delicious. I liked the lemon zest, which added a nice flavor to the biscuit. I made it with frozen berries and didn't thaw them first due to time constraints, and it still turned out nice. Possibly add another tsp of cornstarch if using frozen berries. Will make this again:)

    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!
