Q My husband has become a blueberry farmer. But, we can only eat so many blueberry pies. Do you have any other ideas for blueberries?

What a great question. I can’t imagine ever feeling like I had too many blueberries, but I can certainly imagine getting a little tired of baking the same dessert. We’ve definitely got some recipes in the Test Kitchen that can help you look beyond pie.

Have you tried making a blueberry crumble? It’s just about the easiest summer dessert you can make, and almost any berry or summer fruit will work. Our Rhubarb Blueberry Crumble is tart and sweet, with a hearty, crunchy, cinnamony topping of oats and nuts. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top, it’s a beautiful red, white and blue dessert — very appropriate for this time of year.

Shortcakes are another summer classic, and you’ve probably topped yours with strawberries and whipped cream, but have you ever tried Blueberry Shortcakes? We make classic, sweet biscuits with a crunchy sugar topping, split them in half and fill them with homemade whipped cream and a thickened blueberry sauce.

When I’m looking for new ways to use a favorite ingredient, I start looking for unusual flavor combinations. And, you know what works with sweet summer blueberries? A hit of tart lime. That’s the secret to our Creamy Lime & Blueberry Dessert . It’s cool, refreshing and delicious.

Enjoy your abundance of blueberries — and let me know what else you come up with!
