Fresh Creamy Blueberry Pie

Our wild blueberries here on the property were a little late this year and not as plentiful as normal but I still got enough to make this delicious pie with a few to spare.

You are soooo...Gonna be in Blueberry Heaven!!

You are soooo…Gonna be in Blueberry Heaven!!

What really surprised us was that the seeds in them were also a little scarcer than in the past and the flavor much sweeter. I wondered if it was the fact that I have been picking them for so long now that they might be turning domesticated, ha ha! The pudding part of this recipe has an insert that was not called for in the original recipe that I had picked up from my daughter, who adds cream cheese to her banana pudding recipe and I just had to try it with this yummy treat! I am also trying to cook as much as I can this weekend as Monday starts the remake of my kitchen counters yet again, more on that at a later time……………..

Pound Cake Blueberry Waffles

Wow! Something actually worked this week! The original recipe is very old, hailing from my 1948 Rumford Cook Book and with not much change to the original recipe, it was a big hit here at home and Kenny had a big helping for dessert last night (an early Happy Father’s Day gift ladies, hint hint)! I guess you could have these for breakfast but, as sweet as these waffles are and then topping them off with syrup, I think they’d be a little too out of the box for me! Of course you can add other ingredients to these such as chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or different extracts such as almond, lemon, etc. We have been picking our wild blueberries this week and when I saw these babies, I was sure that I was going to add them to the mix. Our blackberries were quite a disappointment this year as they bloomed beautifully and then produced very few berries that were not very tasty and some even bitter! Maybe next year will be better……….. Now on with the show!

Oh my! I got 4 more to eat!
