summer blueberry cobbler

 well hello there
its been a while
...i've missed you!

so as a gift of my long absence i share with you this a.m.a.z.i.n.g. blueberry cobbler recipe that i decided to try from the latest bon apetit magazine. berries are at their peak right now and i couldnt pass up the opportunity to do something delicious with 2lbs of blueberries from the farmers market!
what you need:
1 1/2 cups plus 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 tbsp plus 1 cup sugar
1 1/2  tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
6 tbsp. (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp creme fraiche (or sour cream)
6 cups fresh blueberries (about 2lbs)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest

what you do:
preheat oven to 375 degrees. whisk 1 1/2 cups flour, 3 tbsp sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. add butter; using your fingertips, incorporate until only pea-size lumps remain. gently mix in creme fraiche. knead in bowl until a biscuit-like dough forms, 5-7 turns (over-mixing will make dough tough).
combine remaining 1 cup sugar, remaining 3 tbsp flour, berries, juice and zest in a large bowl. toss to coat. pour into 8x8x2 glass baking dish or divide among six 6-oz ramekins. tear biscuit topping into quarter-size crumbles; scatter over berries. 
bake cobbler until juices are thick and bubbling and topping is cooked through and deep golden brown, 20-25 minutes for ramekins or 45-50 minutes for baking dish. let cook for at least 1 hour.

this was the perfect summer treat to a beautiful sunday.
