  • This was a wonderful dessert – slightly cooled straight from the oven, with ice cream. The blueberries, lemon and oatmeal are a perfect combination – and extremely easy to make!

    Tasty! I combined a few ripe peaches cut into chunks skin and all, and a handful of raspberries leftover in the frig, with the blueberries. Seems like any combo of fruit works here. I did use less than half the sugar called for in the filling as we like these desserts less sweet. Also added sprinkles of cinnamon to the filling. Baked about 40 minutes. Now to try it with vanilla ice cream…

  • I loved Patricia Sabins ideas. As a diabetic, I have found that the artificial sugars as well as sugar alcohols cause my blood glucose to go up quicker than when I eat reduced sugar or no sugar added foods. Cinnamon is a spice that slows the induction of sugar into the blood stream. I try to add Cinnamon to what ever will allow the flavor to shine. It is a good thing I love Cinnamon! Side note, the same goes for Lima Beans. They are low on the Glycemic index and help block sugars. Great recipe here, from 45 years of baking, I know this will work well with a lot of high moisture fruits. Add a tablespoon full of crushed flax and you add fiber which also helps to slow the sugars from entering the digesting process.

  • Why does the recipe call for 3 pints of blueberries and 1qt of blueberries?
