Blueberry Gratin

Sadly, blueberry season here on Florida is ending!  But I know that fresh wonderful blueberries are plentiful in other states so here is one of my family's favorites!  I mean FAVORITE!

The top of this oven baked Blueberry Gratin will be a mouth-watering golden brown. The almond powder/meal in combination with the Philadelphia Cream Cheese lends a texture and moistness that are truly unique!  One can also serve this dessert “A la Mode”; with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream for a truly decadent international delight!
Prep time 15 minutes               Bake time 25 min                  Serves 6
Ingredients:
1 Pint Fresh Blueberries,           
4 Ounces Butter at room temperature
4 Ounces Philadelphia cream Cheese
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Almond Powder/also called Almond Meal
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs

Method:
1.       Preheat oven to 410 degrees
2.       Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
3.       Add the eggs one at a time
4.       Add the Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Vanilla, beat until smooth
5.       Add the Almond Powder/Meal and blend well
6.       Gently fold in the Blueberries
7.       Turn batter into a 9 inch baking dish AT LEAST 2 INCHES DEEP!
8.       Bake for 25 minutes.  Top will be golden brown and the gratin will be moist and yummy!

  7. Oh, what a great recipe! It looks like a cobbler except with all the cakey top. I like that you used the almond meal bc this can be made low-carb! I saved this one! :)
