blueberry lovin’

12 Feb

Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, currants, blackberries, cherries: yum yum yum. Sadly, they are not in season right now, and are ridiculously expensive to buy except for two weeks ago, when they had organic blueberries on sale for 3/$5 – which is when I made two blueberry lemon crumble pies!

Delicious, easy to make and even somewhat healthy 😉

I don’t have a very good picture, since people started eating it before I remembered to whip out my camera. But trust me on this one, people: it is utopia for your tastebuds! I got the recipe from allrecipes.com =)

delicious AND good for you!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Zest and juice of two lemon
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch

How-to

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. (This took an extra 10 to 15 minutes in my oven.) Cool completely before cutting into squares.
  5. Nom nom nom.
