I LOVE the idea that Lindsey over at Waking Up Williams had...it's a meme for swapping recipes. AWESOME. So because I have been a slacker and didn't get a chance to do it the past few Mondays, I am totally in today because it's all about desserts today! YUM!
I asked Cort what dessert I should post and he immediately said, "BUCKLE!" Blueberry Buckle is actually a recipe from my mom, and I have NO idea what it is called buckle since it's technically not one at all. A buckle is really more of a coffee cake, but this dessert got the name and it stuck.
The crust: 1 stick of butter or margarine
1 cup of flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup crushed nuts (optional--I usually don't use them in case of allergies)
mix above together and put into a 9x13 glass pan.
bake crust at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Then allow to cool completely
The filling: 8 oz of cream cheese--softened
2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1-3 teaspoons of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
cream these ingredients together and spread on cooled crust
Top with about 1 quart of freshly washed blueberries and then cover with whipping cream (or cool whip if you're lazy like I am).
For a Fourth of July flair, you can add cut strawberries to the top making a red, white, and blue dessert.
I have TONS of blueberry recipes because my parents have blueberry bushes and they always have TONS. So my mom and I have been perfecting blueberry recipes. Although I will say this is probably a fan favorite with friends and family!
So enjoy! And make sure to check out all the other recipes floating around out there for Momma's Munchies!
