Sweet Melissa Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pie & Winners

Tuesday, March 18, 2008


Not only does Melissa Murphy's latest book satisfies my cravings for bakery sweets but it also fulfills my love for all things citrusy. I wish I could show you how good her Lemon Squares are but I am afraid I only have the crumbs on our plates to show for it as they were devoured faster than I could take a picture. I had to hide the Lemon Blueberry Tartlets pictured to avoid the same "problem" (eating is never a problem in our neighborhood). I bookmarked the original recipe Lemon Blueberry Pie the first time I flipped through the book for plenty of delicious reasons: it had lemon, buttermilk, blueberries (the freezer is stock full of them) and I could make minis for a dinner party. They lasted for about 5 minutes and then our guests asked to come back next week for another try-out from the book (Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Torte anyone?)

Before I give you the recipe, I know you are awaiting to read if your name got pick to receive one of the 5 copies the publishers were giving away and this is great news for the winners. Thank you all for your participation, I know Melissa must be thrilled about it! I have got even more good news for the 250-ish of you who showed up for the event....keep on reading.....

I need the following people to send me their mailing address at mytartelette(@)gmail(dot)com so we can get the books on their way to ya'll's kitchen!
Congratulations to:
- Steph from Stephanie's Kitchen
- The Coffee Snob from Eat and Be Happy
- Merav from A Tasteful Journey
- Kevin from Closet Cooking
- Ginny from Just Get Floury

The good news? Ariela from Baking and Books is also holding a giveaway for another 5 copies!! So...if your name did not get picked this time around, run to her blog and put your name in the hat once more! Who knows?!



Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pie
Reprinted with permission from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book by Melissa Murphy.

Blueberries really need to be offset by something tart to taste their best. This pie
is so delicious because the rich tang of buttermilk and fresh lemon juice shows off
plump ripe blueberries. This one is really fun and easy to make.

Makes one 10-inch pie (or 8 minis)

For The Pie:

1 prebaked 10-inch piecrust made from All-Butter Pie Dough (1/2 of the recipe below)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, sifted
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

For The Blueberry Topping:

1/4 cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 dry pints fresh blueberries, picked through, stems discarded


All Butter Pie Dough:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 Tb sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup very cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
6-8 Tb ice water

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar baking powder and salt. Add the butter pieces, tossing with your figers to coat them with the flour. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter ito the flour util it is the size of large peas. Sprinkle 6 Tb of the water over the mixture and toss with a fork. The dough whould hold together when you squeeze it in your hand. If it is too dry, add the rest of the water.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat it together in one piece. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts, flatten each into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before rolling. When ready to use, roll it out and fit a pie pan with the dough, prick with a fork. Cover with parchment paper and fill with beans or pastry weights. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or so.

Position a rack in the center of your oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, butter, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, zest, and lemon juice until smooth. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the prebaked pie shell.
Place the pie plate on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the custard is set. Remove to a wire rack to cool to room temperature before topping with the blueberries.

To Make The Blueberry Topping

In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the apricot preserves and the water until melted. Strain through a fine-meshed strainer into a medium bowl. Add the blueberries and, using a rubber spatula, stir gently to coat. Pile the blueberries on top of the pie.
Serve the pie chilled or at room temperature. It keeps tightly wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Those look wonderful. You are really going to town with this book. I have only had time to make one thing so far...but a very good thing.

Suzana said...

I'm getting all curious about this book - it sounds like a terrific one. Those tarts look lovely!

Mevrouw Cupcake said...

Blueberries & lemons?! My mouth is watering, and I can see my plan to take a break from the kitchen during Easter is not going to work out...LOL!

Aran said...

I want to be your neighbor too! I'm always in the lookout for lemon bars, one of my favorite bakery treats. These look really good and I was actually wondering what to make with the leftover buttermilk I have in the fridge. This could be it!

Anonymous said...

Mini blueberry lemon pies... mmm, mmm, it doesn't get much more scrumptious than that. I'm going to add a 5th voice to the sentiment of, "wont you be my neighbor?" :)

Thank you for the shout out!

MyKitchenInHalfCups said...

Oh my these are lovelies! Love that little lemon pig tail! Perfect. Now, I've done my first buttermilk pie and how I love it. Yours are prettier.

Gretchen Noelle said...

Adorable mini pies. What time will the truffle torte be served? ;)

Patricia Scarpin said...

Helen, these are so beautiful! And I'm a sucker for citrus flavors, too - these are right up my alley.

Brilynn said...

The random number generator bests me again!

Those tarts look awesome!

Maya said...

I love blueberry anything!! These tarts look perfect!

Dana said...

I can be very picky about my citrus desserts -- I love them, but some recipes come out way to sweet or way to puckery. But these sound ab fab and just right, and are another endorsement for me to get my hands on this book!

Claire said...

*sigh* I never win these things! Oh, well. That pie sounds divine. I love the mini form that you've done.

Kim said...

Cute site, with great pictures. Looking forward to reading more.
Tarts look good also.......

Veron said...

Catherine Wilkinson said...

Beautiful. And obviously delicious. Sweet Melissa...my favorite Allman Brothers song.

Katy said...

Julie said...

I cannot wait until blueberry season. They are my second favorite fruit, after figs. I like the buttermilk in this recipe.

Deborah said...

I am definitely buying this book!!

Annemarie said...

These look absolutely scrumptious - my kind of dessert with a bit of fruit to make you feel you're doing something good to yourself. I really want this cookbook now...

DoughGirl said...

Those little tarts look delicious...I'm definitely going to have to buy this book!

Astrid said...

I must have this book! Yes I love citrusy desserts, but most of all, I lived in Cobble Hill when Sweet Melissa opened there. It must have been in 1997 or 98, and I thought wow, my neighborhood has suddenly become so cool! Needless to say, I was a regular customer for the few months before I moved back to France...

Christine said...

These look delicious! I am definitely going to have to buy this book better yet I am running to the blog that you posted and entering!

Mike of Mike's Table said...

Those look mouthwatering and I am impressed with the presentation! Save one (or two or three or...) for me? Here's hoping my piddly little blueberry plant steps up to the job this season...

glamah16 said...

Ah well. Next time perhaps. At least I have this great Blueberry tart recipe to follow.

Lori said...

Very cute! Those blueberries look very content sitting on top of that tart.Your good I tell yah!

giz said...

lemon and blueberry - how do I love thee - let me count the ways - can't count that high on my fingers and toes - just gimme that to eat instead :)

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Every summer I mean to go blueberry picking, so I could freeze the berries to use in the winter. If I had done it last summer, I'd be able to make these beautiful little tarts. This year, I'll definitely go picking!

Kevin said...

Those tart look great! Nice lemon swirls on top. Lemon and blueberry is one of my favorite combinations! And there is also some apricot tossed in...mmm...

Obsessive Foodie or Food Addict....You Decide said...

Blueberries are my FAVORITE fruit. It bums me out so bad when I bring them home and they have no taste and I just wasted $5.98 for a small pint. Ugh...why do they have to be sooooo expensive????

ChichaJo said...

Those look adorable...and yummy :) Love the lemon rind curls :)

VeggieGirl said...

Wow, Melissa Murphy's new book sounds lovely; and look at those mini buttermilk (AND BLUEBERRY YUM!) pies!! so divine and elegant. once again, your food-photography is impeccable, Helen!

Cheryl said...

Those are cute, cute, cute. Just a lovely little dessert.
