Make dessert even sweeter with these scrumptious blueberry recipes.
Blueberries are bursting with flavor this time of year. Don't let the season escape you without indulging in at least a few
of these crave-worthy dessert recipes.
Wrap up a summertime meal with a delightful—and easy to make—blueberry crisp. Ripe, fresh blueberries are perfect for this dish, though frozen berries will also work. But keep them frozen, and bake the crisp 10 or 15 minutes longer as needed. Thawed berries are too fragile to toss and give off lots of liquid.

Marnier. This recipe earned our Test Kitchens' highest rating.
