Ingredients

For the blueberries

  • 800 grams blueberries (5 cups)
  • 70 grams granulated sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons potato starch

For the biscuit

  • 130 grams all-purpose flour (1 cup)
  • 27 grams sugar (2 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt (such as fleur de sel)
  • 60 grams unsalted butter (4 tablespoons, chilled and cut into cubes)
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar

Instructions

  1. Add the blueberries and sugar into a pan and heat over medium-low heat until the berries begin to release some juice. Turn the heat up to maintain a simmer and cook until the fruit is tender and their juices start to thicken just a bit (about 20 minutes).

  2. While the berries are cooking wash the lemon well and shave the zest into a small bowl using a Microplane. Juice the lemon into the same bowl (you should have around 2 tablespoons of juice). Stir the potato starch into the mixture.
  3. Prepare the biscuit dough by whisking together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until a crumbly dough forms. Refrigerate until the berries are ready.

  5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C).
  6. When the blueberry filling has reached the consistency of maple syrup (the real kind), add the lemon and starch mixture and stir to combine. Transfer the filling to a 9-inch pie dish (or you can make the cobbler in the pan you cooked the blueberries in).
    Finish the blueberry cobbler filling with starch, lemon juice and lemon zest.
  7. Finish the biscuit topping by whisking the vanilla into the yogurt and stirring this into the flour mixture until the dough barely comes together. Do not overmix or the biscuits will end up tough.
