Blueberry Recipes

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Every summer we go out into the woods and pick blueberries.  I love wild blueberries a lot more than the cultivated ones.  They are smaller and have more flavor.  Here are some of our favorite recipes...

Dawn's Blueberry Torte
2 c. flour
1 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. crushed nuts
Cut together. Press down in a 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 10-15 min. until just golden brown.  Cool.

Cheese center-
1 pkg. cream cheese
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
8 oz. cool whip
Blend and add cool whip to first three items. Spread over cooled crust.

Berry topping-
2 c. berrries
1 c. sugar
1 c. water
3/4 T. cornstarch
Cook until thick.  Cool. Spread over cheese mixture.

Store in fridge until ready to serve.  Sugar may be reduced.

Double Berry Cake (This is to die for!  It takes both blueberries and cranberries, but you could do all blueberries.)

We also make blueberry jam, blueberry pancakes and muffins. You could make Jam Bars with any type of jam, but we like blueberry.

Blueberry Tea Scone Mix (This calls for dried blueberries which are expensive, but you could omit them from the mix and add fresh ones when you make the scones.)
