Blueberry Cobbler

This is my mom's #1 favorite dessert. She chooses it for every birthday, Mother's Day and any other time that she can possibly think of!!! I hope you will try it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(Picture coming soon!!)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tblsp. baking powder
3 cups flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Brown sugar and cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and milk. Combine salt, baking powder, flour, and xanthan gum. Add to shortening mixture. Mix until well combined. Add blueberries and mix just until evenly distributed. Spread evenly across the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cooled!

-Some members of my family like to eat this in a bowl with milk, but you can do whatever you want.
-This is the same texture and ingredients as a coffee cake, so technically you could eat this for breakfast (my mom's pretty happy about that)!!!!!!

Love this dessert. I didn't have the blueberries so I substituted frozen bing cherries and is it ever tasty! DH was begging for another piece (just wanted to test it before bringing it to a church banquet) I guess I better make another dessert to make up for the missing pieces! LOL-Thanks for helping us non-gluten folks out.
