Blueberry Season

We haven't picked any blueberries yet this year. But I have bought blueberries at Costco and made my favorite blueberry dessert! I shared some with our friends who just had Baby #4. Here's the recipe:

Blueberry Dessert Pizza
Combine: 1 pkg. yellow cake mix, 1 c. oats, 6 T. butter. 
Mix on low speed of mixer until crumbly.
Reserve 1 c. crumbs for topping later.
To remaining bowl, add 1 egg and beat well again. 
Press mixture into greased 12-inch pizza pan.
Bake at 350' F for 10 minutes.
Make Blueberry Pie Filling
Heat in saucepan for 8 minutes, stirring occassionally:
2 c. blueberries, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 T. lemon juice, 2 heaping T. cornstarch.
Spread filling on warm crust. (or use can of pie filling).
Make Topping:
To 1 c. crumbs saved above, then add: 
1/4 c. oats, 2 T. butter, 1/2 c. pecans, and 1/2 t. cinnamon.
Bake whole pizza 15-20 minutes longer, until crumbs are lightly browned. 
Cool. Cut. Add a drizzle of frosting in pinwheel pattern to look gourmet.
I send them home with my famous Lasagna (made a double batch so we could have some) and Sweet Green Beans.
