Serves: 6
  • 5 cups fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup sugar (or (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 -3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon plus ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup regular oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter, melted (no substitutes)
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease an 8" square baking dish. Spread the blueberries in the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
