A cute aside. A young Mom I know was picking raspberries with her 3 1/2 year old daughter today and asked the youngster what they should make with the raspberries. Out of the mouths of babes came "Blueberry Pie of course".
There's no such thing as a silly question! Basically these are little cup cakes, where you slice off the top, cut it in half to make "butterfly wings" and fill the little hole that you made with some mascarpone and lemon curd, then "attach" the wings by standing them up in the filling. The recipe below is actually for children, but the results are very tasty!

Blueberry Pie from raspberries? But of course - what else?

Oh, hang on, are links allowed here? I guess if not, it will be deleted? I haven't quite got the hang of where recipes and links are allowed yet. Apologies if I have broken the rules Mods.

We are going to the chippie to get some battered cod and chips this weekend

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
