Blueberry Cobbler

Because we Phat Girls love our fans so much, we want you to have cobbler options! Melissa and I are givers that way. :)
Earlier this week, I posted Cherry Cobbler. It was delish. I enjoyed it immensely.

I decided to tweak the recipe, yet again, just for kicks and grins. I wanted to see if I could make it a little less jiggly. Same basic ingredients, different measurements.

2 cans pie filling (whatever you prefer)
1 cup oats (split into 1/2 cups)
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup brown sugar (plus one small handful)
1 stick butter- melted
bunt pan
cooking spray

I'm basically constructing it like a cobbler lasagna. :)

1. Preheat oven to 375

2. Mix the pie fillings and the 2 cups of Bisquick lightly, just enough to make everything moist

3. Spray the bunt pan liberally with cooking spray.

4. Pour in half of the cobbler mixture into the bunt pan

5. Pour 1/2 cup of oats over the mixture in the pan, sprinkle a small handful of brown sugar on top

6. Pour the rest of the mixture into the  bunt pan

7. Pour the other 1/2 cup of oats on top

8. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of brown sugar on top of it all

9. Pour the stick of melted butter on top.

10. Bake at 375 for around 30 min.

Ooooooohhhh.... pretty. 
Don't forget to add some dairy to make it healthier! I prefer my dairy to be the creamy, frozen variety.

Cherry Cobbler

Melissa made a peach cobbler the other night and we had a mini brainstorm on how to change/ improve the recipe. Here's the original recipe for Peach Crunch
It was good, but I wasn't a fan of just dumping the dry ingredients and baking it. So, here's my attempt at changing things.

2 cans pie filling (your choice)
1 & 1/2 Cups Bisquick
1 Cup Oats
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Stick melted butter
bunt pan
cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Spray bunt pan liberally with cooking spray
3. Lightly mix the 2 cans of pie filling with 1&1/2 Cups of Bisquick

4. Lightly mix in 1/2 cup of oats

5. Pour mix into bunt pan, sprinkle another 1/2 Cup of oats on top

6. Sprinkle 1/2 Cup of brown sugar on top

7. Pour 1 stick of melted butter on top

8. Bake at 375 for 30-35 min. Allow to cool.

It's not going to be solid like a cake, it's going to be kind of jiggly. The brown sugar and butter on top make it nice and crunchy.  Next time, I might use 1 whole cup of oats on top, not just a half.

I'm seeing many, many cobblers in my future... peach, apple, blueberry....Yum!
