I had to Post this recipe. I LOVE blueberries and I LOVE cobbler. You can find the best fresh blueberries here in Michigan, yummy. This cobbler is even better with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Whipped cream, if desired
1.Heat oven to 400ºF.
2.Mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in blueberries and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole; keep blueberry mixture hot in oven.
3.Mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, the baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto hot blueberry mixture.
