Blueberry Dessert

Recipe by  

"This heavenly dessert was my Grandmother's recipe, and there are never any leftovers. The sweet meringue and the salty crust just compliment each other. You will need to print copies of the recipe, because everyone that has a taste will want it. You can make this the night before you need it."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix the butter, crushed saltines, and walnuts together in a bowl, and press the mixture into the bottom of an 8x12 inch baking dish.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, and vinegar in a large metal or glass bowl until the mixture forms stiff peaks, then beat in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Spread the meringue mixture over the prepared crust, and bake in the preheated oven until the meringue is golden brown and firm, 10 to 15 minutes. Let the crust cool.
  4. Mix together the blueberry pie filling and lemon juice in a bowl, and spread the mixture over the cooled meringue.
  5. Beat the cream and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract together with an electric mixer, gradually adding confectioners' sugar, until the whipped cream forms fluffy peaks. Cover the blueberry pie filling with the whipped cream, and refrigerate until served.

Seems as though there is problem with this recipe, I made it an customized it for 8 servings, it turned out very good, so then I made it for 12 as originally printed and it seems so though the pan size should change to 9x13, I put in the 8x12 as stated, the meringue was so high that it seemed hard to put on the blueberries and the whipped cream. Something is just not correct with this recipe. First pan was very good.

First review! Notsogood. Not bad, just not worth making. It looked pretty. Blueberries sandwiched between white. The meringue became rubbery once topped. The crust was okay. It didn't become crisp or too much different than it was to start with. Too many dishes, too much time, too ho-hum to make this again. Maybe it's one of those recipes kids like more than adults.
