Man, I've been cooking SO much new stuff when I've had vacation, so I have tons to write about!
Per is not that fond of picking blueberries either, but he does enjoy a good blueberry pie. This is a simple version - no need for pastry. You just whip up a base, and scatter the berries on top. And you can use frozen ones, if you don't happen to have fresh ones, it won't really matter much. The result: a crispy yet chewy crust with berries running into interesting patterns on top. Serve with vanilla sauce or ice cream.
125 g butter
225 g sugar
140 g flour
1,5 tsp baking powder
200 g blueberries
Preheat the oven to 175°C. Melt the butter and let it cool a bit. Beat egg and sugar until fluffy. Add the butter, and beat to incorporate. Add the flour and the baking powder, and stir until batter is uniform. Spread into a greased pie dish, and scatter the berries on top. Bake, low in the oven, for about an hour. Take care so it won't burn!
