Yesterday was the first time I have ever heard Karen use that word – at least I guess it is a word.  Someone check the OED for me.

Karen was talking about this:

Blueberry Yum YumThis is Karen’s Blueberry Yum Yum.  It is not made on the Egg, but it does make a wonderful dessert after a good 4th of July BBQ dinner.  This is how you make it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2  cups self rising flour
  • 1/2  cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4  cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce)  container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4  cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3  tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. Stir together first 4 ingredients with a fork until crumbly.
  2. Press into a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch pan.
  3. Bake at 375˚ for 15 minutes.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  5. Beat whipped topping, cream cheese, and powdered sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
  6. Spoon over prepared crust.
  7. Cover and chill.
  8. Stir together sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan.
  9. Whisk in 1 cup water until smooth.
  10. Stir in blueberries, and bring to a boil.
  11. Boil, stirring constantly, 2  minutes.
  12. Remove from heat; cool.
  13. Pour over cream cheese mixture.
  14. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

Let me know what you think.  I think I am glad Karen only makes this about once a year.  It is just too addictive for me.
