Crumble aux Myrtilles (Blueberry Crumble Pie )


1 pound blueberries
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup flour, 5 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt


1 pie pan
1 deep sauce pan


Mix the flour, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Melt the butter and add it to the flour mixture. Stir this thoroughly and make it as granular as possible. Once you have a fine crumby texture put it in the refrigerator for 2 hours. This will be the crust and the top layer of the tarte.

Put the blueberries in a pan with the white sugar and cook it over a low heat for 10 minutes. Spread a thin layer of dough in the pie pan evenly over bottom. Then carefully spread the blueberries over the crust. Cover the layer of blueberries with the remainder of dough. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and bake at 350.

Country of the Food: French | Email to Author               Posted on 22 April 2003 @ 09:52:22

Gratin Dauphinois (Potato-Cheese Casserole )

2 pounds potatoes
2 cups milk
1/2 cup swiss cheese -shredded
2 eggs

1 10 inch (approximately) casserole dish
1 12 inch or larger baking pan
2 cereal bowls
1 cheese grader

Peel and wash the potatoes and then thinly slice them. Shred the cheese into the first cereal bowl. Mix the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, in the other cereal bowl.

Grease the 10" inch pan. Layer the potatoes in the pan overlapping each slice. Cover this with a layer of cheese. Pour the egg mixture on top of the cheese. Place four .25" squares of butter on top of the cheese.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees "bain marie" style. Place 10" pan inside the larger pan. Fill the larger pan with 1" of water. This will help prevent the milk-egg mixture from over cooking.

The dish is ready when all of liquid in the potatoes pan is absorbed. The top layer should have a golden color. You could also check the potatoes with a knife for softness.

A meat dish and salad would complement this quite nicely.

innocuous) cloves of garlic.

In a wide casserole which can be used on top of the stove, heat a
tablespoon of olive oil and brown a shoulder of lamb on both sides.
remove the meat and add to the saucepan 20 peeled whole cloves of
garlic. Cook gently for a few minutes and sprinkle in a few
tablespoons of flour, stir well, then continuing to stir, add 300 ml
stock mixed with a tablespoon of tomato puree. Return the meat to
the casserole, turn it over in the stock mixture, cover tightly and
simmer very gently until the meat is cooked. Turn the meat over
halfway through cooking and check at intervals, adding more stock if
the sauce is getting dry.
