This recipe has been posted here for play in Culinary Quest - Texas. I found this recipe on website: http://www.melskitchencafe.com Texas has their own way of doing things, Texas-style blueberry cobbler means that instead of a tender biscuit topping, a thick, buttery batter encases pockets of juicy blueberries and bakes up to golden, crispy, buttery perfection. Note: If fresh blueberries are out of season, frozen blueberries can work. Make sure the frozen blueberries are thawed and well-drained before mashing. Measure the 3 cups of blueberries after they have been thawed and drained)
