Blueberry Pistachio Bars – humble pie

Blueberries…there you sit all round, intensely blue, full of your juicy selves.

Let’s heat you up with freshly squeezed orange juice, sugar and vanilla beans scraped straight outta the pod. Kiss your composure goodbye, blueberries.

You’ll fall apart, for sure. And wake up poured over one quietly crunchy, pistachio-green crust.

You’ll get baked for nearly an hour. Then I’ll let you cool in the garden on a table with a good view and a fringed, linen cloth.

Before I cut you up and serve you, blueberries.

You’ve been humbled into pie, cut in bars.

This is my midsummer, finger food dessert: perfect for a picnic or a potluck party.

It’s summertime. I say…beat up some blueberries. Turn them into a humble-looking bar with a softly crunchy, pistachio crust. Serve ’em warm and oozy. Seduce summer.

Whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream: encouraged. Welcomed.

Here’s the recipe followed by some photos to help illustrate some prep and assembly. Oink on!

The following photo collection is subtitled: Cameo Appearances by Apron Strings. Persistence pays off when you’re trying to get on camera.
