Wild Maine Blueberry Cobbler

Butter to grease pan
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 pints blueberries or mixed berries or 2 (14-ounce) bags frozen blueberries (not defrosted)
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 (13-ounce) jar Wild Maine Blueberry Jam (Pick your jar up at Bonnes Amies)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces
1/4 cup half and half or light cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Butter a 2-3 quart heavy baking dish.
In a small bowl combine sugar and cornstarch.
Gently stir the sugar mixture, blueberries, lemon zest, Wild Maine Blueberry Jam and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour into prepared dish.
Combine flour, 1 Tablespoon of the sugar, baking powder and salt in a food processor and process briefly to blend. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Pour in half and half and pulse just until dough begins to pull together.
Remove dough from processor and knead briefly on a lightly floured surface to form a ball, adding more flour if dough is sticky. Break pieces of dough from ball and cover berries with slightly flattened pieces of dough in a “cobbled” irregular pattern. Sprinkle on remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar.
Bake until crust is lightly browned and berries are hot, 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve with sweetened whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or yogurt.

Sweet and full of flavor, the blueberries are simmered with just the right amount of sugar and a splash of lemon juice to make this simple and extraordinary jam.
