This came from a family cookbook. It was originally from a wonderful Texas-based cafeteria specializing in delicious slow-smoked barbecued steak. There were Underwood's all over Texas back in the day, but today the only remaining cafeteria is the original, which is in Brownwood, south of Abilene.
The Underwood's Cafeteria always had blueberry alongside the cherry cobbler. I have not tried it but would assume the recipe is the same but with blueberries instead of the cherries.
