Sweet Tooth Recipe: June 2011


Summer is here and we want to celebrate with the easiest blueberry dessert ever! This comes from our friends at I Shot the Chef blog. Enjoy!

Blueberry Streusel

1/2 c dark brown sugar
1 c flour
1/4 lb butter, chilled
2 pints of blueberries
1/4 to 1/2 c sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the sugar and flour in a large bowl.  Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers or cut in with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.

2. Combine the blueberries and sugar in another bowl.  Pour the berries into an 8×8 baking dish (or individual ramekins.)  Generously mound the streusel on top and  bake for about 20 minutes until the streusel is golden brown and the blueberries are bubbling.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 4

Note:  I suggest you place the baking dish on a sheet pan covered with parchment as the blueberries tend to bubble and sometimes overflow.  No need to clean up a sticky mess later!

As always, remember to brush and floss each time you indulge in a sweet tooth moment!
