Because sometimes you’re craving a warm fruity dessert in the morning. And maybe you bought a tiny carton of vanilla ice cream for just such a craving. And maybe you have exactly one cup of blueberries that are keepin’ it real in your fridge. And maybe you just want to enjoy dessert without feeling like you have to have a big reason for making it.
So, I ate this while standing in my dining room, looking real cool in my pajamas, a flannel, and slippers. And it just totally helped my outlook. Sometimes weekends are tricky when they’re full of more thoughts than plans. But sometimes all it takes is a warm dessert, and a cool breeze to turn things around.
I recommend getting your cobbler on breakfast-style. (Why not?) Ice cream for breakfast is the new yogurt for breakfast maybe.
P.S. This cobbler is perfect for one. However, it is just as perfect for sharing with a hottie after dinner.
