Fresh Blueberry Cobbler ala Maine

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Another typical dessert worldwide, but blueberries make it a tyipical Maine style dessert. And very yummy, too!!

2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup sweet white wine, or beer or ale, or water
1 cup raw sugar
zest of one lemon or orange
1 tablespoon lemon or orange juice
4 - 5 cups fresh blueberries

1 cup all purpose unbleached flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
6 tablespoons very cold unsalted butter
1/3 cup white wine or water

vanilla ice cream and fresh blueberries for serving

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Inn batter bowl whisk the cornstarch with the wine or ale or water. Whisk in the sugar, zest, juice and blueberries. Pile mixture into a 8-9 inch skillet (use your cast iron if you have one!) and bring the mixture to a boil on top of the stove, stirring gently once or twice. In meantime, in food processor with steel chopping blade in place, whirl the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon or nutmeg. Add cold butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the 1/3 cup wine of water and whirl to form dough. Drop the mixture by a spoon carefully on the boiling mixture, making about 6 - 8 "biscuits". Bake in hot oven about 20 - 25 minutes, until nicely browned and done. Serve hot, warm, or cold. Ice cream and more blueberries make a great presentation when cobbler is at room temperature, etc.
