Simple, fast and delicious way to use fresh blueberries.
I am on vacation at our house in Rhode Island and the blueberries are ripening. We have 4 well established bushes - so we are swimming blueberry goodness. I mentioned vacation…… I love spending time in the kitchen but I want to keep things simple while vacationing. I found this great quick recipe from Averie Cooks (www.averiecooks.com).
I love blueberry pie but not time commitment of dealing with the crust and all on a beautiful hot summer day. Averie’s recipe is called Crustless Blueberry Pie and I have made only slight changes. It is perfect the way it is. The finished “pie” tastes just like a fresh blueberry pie but without all the crust prep and much less sugar too. I am thinking that most any fruit could work in this recipe……….
Eat, No Crust Blueberry Pie, for dessert, hot out of the oven, or at room temperature. You can add ice cream or whipped cream if you want. I like a leftover slice for breakfast…………..
