I didn't use Wild Maine blueberries, but I did use some big fresh juicy ones! This is a delicious dessert that we enjoyed with some ice cream, while it was warm. Very good!

I love anything with blueberries in them and this cobbler was no exception! Loaded with blueberries, and just sweet enough. I topped ours with ice cream to bring it over the top. A definite must try recipe!

I love anything with blueberries and this was so delicious. Each bite just got better and better. I really loved the addition of the orange rind and lemon which added so much flavor to the blueberries. I added a scoop of ice cream on the top for an exceptionally decadent and comforting dessert!

The blueberries are pretty good right now and my sweet tooth was calling for me to make something to satisfy it, so I whipped up this delicious cobbler. We had it just as it came out of the oven with lots of ice cream. It is a real sweet satisfier for us and we loved it!

Fabulous! Make it when blueberries are good and you will be pleasantly surprised how wonderful this is. It's great with Vanilla Bean ice cream.

Our Easter dessert and we couldn't wait to eat it! This is a wonderful full of blueberries cobbler that my extended family loved. I made it while we were eating dinner and the smells coming from the kitchen were amazing! Some of us having it with whip cream and others of us opting for ice cream. None of us talking too much while we were enjoying this sweet treat! A real great fresh berry dessert enjoyed by all.
