Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars


IMG_8425.JPGThis week’s recipe for the Tuesdays with Dorie group is meant to be Pistachio Berry Slims. It looks like a beautiful cookie, however when you have anaphylactic children it is just not going to be an option.
I debated whether I should try replacing the pistachio with coconut however last minute I decided to catch up on a recipe I had missed.
Dorie said these bars are inspired from a buttermilk pie she had at Husk restaurant. I have the Husk cookbook by Sean Brock, Heritage, and love leafing though it! So I knew right then that this recipe was going to be my substitute this week.

Seriously? What is there not to love about this?!
It is not too sweet, it almost feels like a light summery dessert. I served it with a dollop of cream however I really do not think it needs any. It is perfect the way it is.
The tanginess of the blueberries is wonderful!

I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to go back and make this recipe. It is something I will definitely make again and I think next time some sour morello cherries!

  1. These are good, so I am glad you got the chance to make them.

  2. I know how you feel regarding nuts. This cookbook seems to have nuts in many recipes. My son does not get to each much from this cookbook. Nice catch-up, we enjoyed that one too.

  3. Oh yes this would be great with cherries!!

  4. Oh, I should make these while blueberries are still around! They look so good. I wonder if there could be a nut-free version of the “cream” that goes on top of the gratins?

  5. this was a good one, and i bet it would be fab with cherries! i now do wonder about the pistachio cookie done with coconut…it would be a tasty combo for sure.
