Blueberry Boy-Bait

Not exactly fishing for any boys here but I wanted to make these upon hearing the name!It just sounds intriguing does it not?Anyway, this is the original recipe from a Chicago teenager for the Pillsbury $100,000 Recipe & Baking Contest 1954, or so it says.







This "bait" is pretty good but not WOW if you know what I mean. (Or I am just plain fussy about my food) I think I will give Nigella's recipe a try before I decide to bait any boys with this dessert. She promises it to be more Britain-style in her book How To Be a Domestic Goddess, ( which I recently got in my bunch of birthday gifts ) and that just has me excited, not baiting British boys excited, but then again, British boys are pretty darn cute! :)
