Summer Berry Bake
From Cook's Country
Fresh summer berries need very little to bring out their best. Take a lesson from the French: They toss berries in a light, lemony custard and bake them long enough to heat through. We wanted to do the same for our Summer Berry Bake but without the rigmarole of preparing the custard. We blended prepared lemon curd, cream cheese, and sour cream to approximate the custard’s smooth texture and bright, eggy flavor. Dusting the berry and custard mixture with a little light brown sugar enhanced the flavor of the fruit and helped with browning. Broiling the berries and custard in an ovensafe baking dish ensured that the high heat of the broiler didn’t crack the dish.
Prepared lemon curd can be found on the supermarket shelves near the jams and preserves. If you haven't removed your cream cheese from the refrigerator to bring it to room temperature, you can microwave it for 10 seconds on full power to soften.
