Basic Fruit Cobbler

This is a great (and easy) way to celebrate the bounty of the season.

Preparation Time:


2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (or other fruit, see below)
1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tbsp cornstarch

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp shortening (or butter, or coconut oil)
3/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350

Place apple juice in a saucepan. Stir in cornstarch and sugar until dissolved then add blueberries. Cover and turn on low heat. Heat for 10 minutes stirring periodically or until berries are thoroughly warm and desired texture is acheived. This will vary depending on whether you use fresh or frozen. (Should be like pie filling)

Meanwhile, mix together dry ingredients for the dumplings. Cut in shortening until you have a grainy cornmeal like texture. Add milk and mix until just moist.

Pour fruit mixture into a casserole dish or dutch oven. Drop dumpling mixture by spoonfuls over the top until completely covered. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the top of the dumplings comes out clean.
