Ok, I lied. I didn't come up with this recipe. It's from my favorite magazine, Bon Appetite. I did slightly modify it however, by cutting the amount of sugar by about a quarter, I like my teeth as they are, thank you very much.
I don't usually eat dessert in our house. Surprising, right, considering the amount of desserts and sugary treats made and posted on this site? Once in a while though, I like to surprise Melissa by pulling off something like this, something I know she'll enjoy, and something that I'll enjoy as well- because it doesn't require chocolate.

This recipe was a great use for a box of blueberries bought from the farmer's market. It's easy to make, tastes great, and serves four-six depending on serving size.
1 1/2 cups plus 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons plus 1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" pieces 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sour cream
6 cups fresh blueberries (about 2 lb.)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
Preheat oven to 375°
Stir 1 1/2 cups flour, 3 Tbsp. sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add butter; using your fingertips crush and knead it until it forms small pea-size nodules. Mix in sour creme. Knead, using your hands until a thick dough forms, but be careful not to over-knead.
Add the remaining 1 cup of sugar (cough), remaining 3 Tbsp. flour, berries, juice, and zest in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Spoon the mixture into baking ramekins. Crumble the biscuit topping evenly over the bowls.
Bake until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling and molten.
