Rustic Blueberry Slab

Yum


Oh my goodness!
I actually have purple stained fingers from running my finger through this awesome dessert!
Nothing says summer like blueberries, right?
Well, this RUSTIC BLUEBERRY SLAB will leave you reaching for another slice and maybe even another.  It is good enough for dessert and I reckon you could even eat this for breakfast.  Just call it a danish and you're good.



Oozing with sweet blueberries, a layer of sweet cheese and a light flaky crust...need I say more?

Inspired by Lemons for Lulu
Ingredients:
1 pint of fresh blueberries
cooking spray
1/2 package puff pastry
4 oz goat cheese
8 oz mascarpone Italian sweet cream cheese (cream cheese will work too)
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cornstarch

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a cookie sheet.
Roll out defrosted puff pastry on a floured surface.
Place on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven.  Use the back of a fork to depress the middle, up until 1 inch around the sides to create a lip.  Cool completely.

Place blueberries and sugar into a saucepan.  Heat for 7-8 minutes or until blueberries begin to burst.  Add vanilla and stir.  Then add cornstarch, stir and remove from heat.  Cool.

Use a mixer to blend together goat cheese and mascarpone.  Add honey and blend completely.

Spread cheese mixture onto cooled puff pastry.  Next add the blueberry mixture.  Serve.

Store in refrigerator.



Easy peasy!  The honey, that is added to the cheeses, gives just the right amount of sweet to compliment the blueberries.  And the crust?  Well, I love crust!!!!  How can you go wrong with puff pastry?  The short answer...you can't.

As we are about to enter the season of blueberries, add RUSTIC BLUEBERRY SLAB to your recipe index!
