Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

53

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

Yield : 1 quart

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (about 1 lb)

3 Tbsp lemon juice

3/4 cup to 1 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet your blueberries are, and how sweet you want the result to be)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups full fat plain yogurt (full fat yogurt is preferred, if you use low-fat or non-fat yogurt, substitute 1/4 cup of it with heavy whipping cream)

1/2 cup whole milk

DIRECTIONS:

1 Place the blueberries, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat, stirring, until all of the sugar has dissolved. While the mixture is heating, use a potato masher to mash up the blueberries. When all of the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat. Strain out the blueberry skins and let the juicy blueberry syrup cool for 10 minutes.

2 Stir in the yogurt and milk until completely incorporated. Cover and chill the mixture in the refrigerator for several hours (or overnight) until completely cold.

3 Process the blueberry yogurt mixture in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions (usually about 25 minutes). Serve immediately (it will be soft) or let it firm up a bit by freezing it for several hours.

SUMMER PUDDING

36

SUMMER PUDDING

Yield : 6servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced 1/4 inch thick

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 pint blueberries

1 1/2 pints raspberries

1 1/2 pints blackberries

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Pinch of salt

18 slices white bread

1 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine strawberries and sugar in a large straight-sided skillet over medium heat. Cook until berries release their juices and sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Add blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, and cook until they release their juices but still hold their shape, about 5 minutes; the mixture will look like a thick soup. Remove from heat, and transfer to a mixing bowl to cool. Stir in lemon juice and salt.

  2. Line six 1/2-cup ramekins with plastic wrap. Cut a circle to the diameter of a ramekin from each slice bread.

  3. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the berry mixture into each ramekin. Dip six circles of bread into the bowl of berries, one at a time, saturating them; place one in each ramekin. Cover with 2 tablespoons more of the berry mixture. Continue until you have three layers of bread and berries, ending with bread. If there is not enough juice to saturate all the bread, press remaining berries through a coarse sieve to yield more juice. When complete, bread and berries should be brimming over the tops of the ramekins.

  4. Arrange ramekins in a shallow baking pan, cover with plastic wrap, and place a board on top large enough to cover them all. Weight the board with heavy cans (about 5 pounds), and refrigerate overnight.

  5. To serve, combine cream, vanilla, and confectioners’ sugar in a chilled metal bowl; whip until stiff but soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove top layer of plastic wrap, and invert puddings onto plates; remove ramekins. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Blueberry Lemon Crescent Ring

Blueberry Lemon Crescent Ring

Blueberry Lemon Crescent Ring

 Yields:  12 pcs
Baking temp: 350F
Baking time: 15-20  mins

INGREDIENTS:

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (see Note)

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheet or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Glaze:

½ cup powdered sugar

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon juice and lemon peel with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.

Unroll dough sheet. (If using crescent rolls, unroll dough and separate into 2 large rectangles. Overlap long sides to form 13×7-inch rectangle; firmly press edges and perforations to seal.) Spread cream cheese mixture on rectangle to within ½ inch of edges.Sprinkle evenly with blueberries.

Blueberry Lemon Crescent Ring2

Starting with 1 long side of rectangle, roll up the dough tightly and pinch the edge to seal. Some of the filling will leak out during baking but that’s okay!

With a serrated knife, cut into 12 slices. My cream cheese was overly soft so cutting it was tricky. Don’t worry if it’s messy. When it bakes it will take care of any issues.

Blueberry Lemon Crescent Ring3

Arrange slices on cookie sheet in a circle, overlapping slightly.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

In small bowl, mix the glaze ingredients until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm crescent ring. Serve warm or room temperature.

Blueberry Muffins

 

 

Blueberry Muffins

Yield : 8 muffins

INGREDIENTS:

2/3 cup white sugar

1 large egg

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sour cream (you can sub yogurt)

1 cup blueberries

About 1 tablespoon white sugar for the top (optional)

4

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. You may want to lightly grease your muffin tin so that the crown of the muffin doesn’t stick to the pan (I didn’t though). Place eight muffin liners in the pan.
  • Combine the sugar, egg, oil, milk, and vanilla in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt. I stir the baking powder and salt into the flour right on top of the wet ingredients so I don’t have to get out another bowl. Once the baking powder and salt are pretty well distributed in the flour, stir them into the wet ingredients until combined. Don’t overmix. Just stir until it’s no longer lumpy.
  • Stir in the sour cream just until well distributed. Fold in the blueberries (I left about half for the top so some would be visible on the crown of the muffin).
  • Evenly distribute the batter in the muffin tin. If you are making 8 high crowned muffins, you will be filling them all the way to the top. If you want to make shorter muffins you could probably fill 12. If you saved some berries for the top, sprinkle them on and press them in lightly. Sprinkle the tops with the 1 tablespoon of sugar if you want.
  • Bake muffins for about 25 minutes. If you’re using frozen berries it will take about 5 minutes longer. Also depending on how many muffins you decided to make, it will also take a shorter time. Just make sure you get them out as soon as a toothpick comes out clean.
  • You can also make maybe 3 or 4 giant muffins in a jumbo muffin tin. If you do, bake them at 350ºF for maybe about 40 minutes.
  • I like to put them in a sealed container while they’re still warm so the stay really moist. That’s assuming they aren’t eaten right out of the pan though.
