Dear SOS: My family fell in love with a recipe I lost or misplaced. It probably appeared in 1995 or 1996 in a section on fruit tarts, cobblers, etc. It was called Blueberry Buckle and had plenty of blueberries, a cake-like base plus a streusel top. I would love to make this delicious buckle again.
Dear Marie: That ran in 1996 with a story by Charles Perry. He wrote about the history of American fruit desserts, such as cobblers, pandowdies, grunts, slumps and buckles. Good story, good recipes. This recipe is from “The Jordan Collection of New England Cookery” (Jordan Hospital Club, Plymouth, Mass., 1976).
