4 large eggs

3 egg yolks

1 tsp. vanilla

¼ C. brandy

Preheat oven to 350°. Place almonds on baking sheet and toast until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Coat six 4½x5½-inch baking dishes with butter and set aside.

Whisk until smooth. Refrigerate bowl for 30 minutes. Wash and dry Oregon blueberries and place in a medium bowl. Add brandy and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
