Instructions

For the Blueberry Filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). In a 12-inch skillet or a 9x13-inch baking dish, combine the blueberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, and sugar. Toss well, making sure the berries are well coated. Add in the flour and nutmeg and toss well to combine. Set aside while you make the cobbler topping. 

For the Cobbler Topping:

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar, and mix well to combine.
  2. Cut the butter into small cubes, then, using a pastry cuter, work it into the mixture until lit resembles a coarse meal. Set aside. 
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the egg, milk, and cream. Pour this liquid mixture into the flour mixture and use a fork to stir everything together until just moistened.
  4. Empty the loose dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead gently until it's a workable texture, lightly flouring as needed. Press the dough into a rectangle 1/2" thick. Cut into 12 small squares. 

For the Egg Wash:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the egg and water. Whisk until well combined. 

Assembly:

  1. Place the squares of dough on top of the blueberry mixture. Lightly brush each square with the egg wash, then sprinkle with the sparkling sugar. 
  2. Place pan in the oven and bake for 28 to 30 minutes, or until the cobbler topping is deeply golden brown and cooked through. 
  3. Serve warm, with ice cream or whipped cream. 

Notes

  • For a sweeter cobbler, feel free to increase the sugar to 2/3 cups (131 grams).
  • If the topping starts getting too brown, place a piece of aluminum foil on top for the duration of the baking time.
