Blueberry Cream Pie!

This is a good recipe from the Rural Missouri paper that we get every month. I (Karise) made it for dessert last night, without the butter/pecan topping.

1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons flour, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine sour cream, sugar, salt, 2 tablespoons flour, vanilla, and egg. Beat 5 minutes or until smooth. Fold in blueberries.

Pour filling into pastry shell. Bake for 25 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients, stirring well. Sprinkle over top of pie. Bake 10 addtional minutes. Chill until ready to serve.

Yum!! 🙂

Blueberry Pizza Dessert

Here is a recipe we (Karise and Kerri) concocted Saturday evening for dessert. It turned out well and I would definitely make it again. First make a pizza crust (or use an already made one) –the thinner the better. Then spread 1 cup of blueberries (or more!) over the crust.

Combine:

1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. oats
1/4 c. sugar

Cut 1/4 c. butter into this until you have an evenly crumbled mixture. Sprinkle over the blueberries. Bake it at 400 degrees until the crust is done and browned. Make a powdered sugar glaze: 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 to 3 teaspoons milk. It should be as thick as possible and yet be pourable. Drizzle it over the pizza. Eat it while it’s warm. Delicious!

Thanks for Coming! More Next Weekend!

We had another wonderful day of meeting new people and talking to friends and neighbors. We basically came to the end of the picking by the end of the day. It seems like the Lord has really blessed us with matching people and blueberries. In other words, just the right amount of people for the blueberries we had ripe. Just in the last two hours, bikers started coming in. One, two, three, four……well, I think there ended up being 8 bikers all together. No, I’m not talking Harley Davidsons here. They were the pedal type. They risked their lives riding on highway 6 (which we all know is literally falling apart) to come to the plantation. I was humbled and excited. They were a great bunch of university students. One was even from Nepal. I joked with him about riding all the way here on his bike from Nepal. He will hold the prize for a long time for coming the farthest.

Well, as to the blueberries. I went out this morning and couldn’t believe how many appeared to ripen overnight! I picked a whole gallon of nice berries. They are ripening fast. By Thursday, I suspect we will want many pickers. Please come. I don’t want to have to pick all those berries.

Again, we will be open bright and early Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (7 am). So, walk, ride a bike, motorcycle, airplane (we now have a private airstrip 1/2 mile from our house), or take a conventional car ride, to Lost Branch Blueberry Farm.

Thank you,

P.S. My wife made this blueberry dessert thing. It looked like a pie but kinda different.
I thought it was delicious but I wish I would have had some ice cream to go with it.

Here it is:

Easy Blueberry Pie

Crust:
1 cup finely ground whole wheat flour
2 T brown sugar
6 T butter, room temperature
1/8 t salt
1 T apple cider vinegar

Combine flour, salt & sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture looks crumbly. Mix in the vinegar to form a dough. Press the mixture, using your fingers, to a depth of ¼ inch onto the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Set aside.

Filling:
3 cups blueberries, divided
¾ cup brown sugar
2-3 T finely ground whole wheat flour
¼ t ground cinnamon

Combine 2 cups blueberries, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour into the crust. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 and bake another 30 minutes. Take out of the oven and immediately pour the reserved 1 cup uncooked blueberries on top. Cool. To serve you may dust the top with powdered sugar…..Yum!
