Blueberry Boy Bait

How could you pass up something with a name like Blueberry Boy Bait?  A couple weekends ago, JP and I were invited to a large-ish dinner party at a friend's house, and it was honestly too hot to bake a cake.  Or cookies (the idea of doing batch after batch of baking in a hot kitchen made me feel sweaty).  Brownies always seem a bit heavy for the summer, with dense, bitter dark chocolate, and I wasn't feel brave enough for a pie.  While scanning through Smitten Kitchen, I came across this wonderfully-named dessert with blueberry (I had some frozen in my freezer) treat.  No special ingredients needed, and I figured we could all use some boy bait in our lives.
I've got to say, this dessert is exactly what the name implies.  They're perfectly sweet, not cloying, and there's a slight crust on top, courtesy of some sugar and cinnamon.  I had no leftovers, and everyone loved how cute they looked with the little signs on top!  Not too fancy, but not boxed, either, this dessert was just what the doctor ordered.
