No-Fuss Blueberry Cobbler
- 8 or 9 inch pie plate
- 1 21 ounce can blueberry pie filling see notes for substitutions
- ½ cup unsalted softened butter
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- pinch salt
- coarse sugar to sprinkle on top optional
- Prepare. Preheat the oven to 375 with the rack in the center. Prepare a spare baking sheet by covering it in foil to catch any drips.
- Make the topping. While the filling is cooking, make the topping. Combine the butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed, until its light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and blend on low until just combined.
- Assemble. Pour the filling into a pie plate or shallow quiche dish. Dot the fruit with the sugar cookie topping with 2 tablespoon-sized dollops.
- Bake and serve. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes until the topping is browned and the filling is bubbly. During the last few minutes of baking time, sprinkle coarse sugar on top if desired. Allow the cobbler to stand at room temperature for a few minutes before serving. Best when served with vanilla ice cream.
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch (mix with sugar to prevent lumps)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups blueberries
