These were wonderful! I used fresh blueberries. I made the recipe as written and did not think the nutmeg was overpowering at all. I took these to my Bible study and everyone loved them! I wasn't sure how cool the crust needed to be in step 8, so I let it cool about 45 minutes. It was still a little warm when I added the blueberries. Worked out great-everything came out evenly and lightly browned. Thank you for this recipe!
Lovely! I was surprised at how well the lemony flavor came through - just enough. I was worried at first that there wouldn't be enough blueberries, but it all comes together quite nicely. Thanks for sharing!
These are delicious! I used frozen blueberries which worked well! The hint of lemon just makes this recipe. Being a blueberry lover, I am sure I will use this recipe often! Thanks for sharing, Mysterygirl!
