When Oprah rang doorbells in Nashville to find out what people were cooking, she was lucky enough to find Marsha dishing out her fabulous cobbler!
Servings: Makes 6–8 servings
- 3 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup shortening (Crisco or vegetable)
- 1 egg , slightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Cook the berries on top of the stove over medium heat, until cooked through, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Add the sugar, cornstarch, salt and lemon juice and stir until thickened.
Mix together the flour, shortening, egg, water and lemon juice and place about half the mixture in a pie shell or rectangular loaf pan. Empty the blueberry mixture into the pie crust and cover with the remaining pastry.
Bake at 350° for one hour, until the blueberries are bubbling over. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, and serve.
