What a lovely, simple and delicious treat. I wanted to make 2 of these and this is how I did it: I had two containers of blueberries that were each 4.4 oz which turned out to be about 3/4 of a cup. So I put a whole container of blueberries into each ramekin (sorry I don't know the size of the ramekins but they are pretty large). I used one cup of plain yogurt (instead of sour cream) and mixed it with one tablespoon of vanilla and covered the blueberries with it and used all of the yogurt mixture. I measured out a full cup of packed dark brown sugar and sprinkled it over the tops but after using a little more than half of that I decided that was enough sugar. I broiled in the oven for 3 1/2 minutes and they started smoking but luckily I got out in time before they burned . The top was slightly crunchy and I was surprised the yogurt was still cold after being in the oven but found I loved the contrast of the temperatures within the dish. Cold creaminess in contrast to warm melty gooey crunchy sugar is a very good thing indeed. Next time, I will use the entire amount of brown sugar the recipe calls for as the sugar reduces dramatically after cooking. A wonderful and indulgent way to enjoy blueberries. Would be a great dessert to serve to guests as it's simple to prepare, has great presentation value and is unique too.
