Blueberry Pie

Summer is right around the corner. It is time for fresh fruit and yummy homemade pies. I love fresh apple pie, blueberry pie, and so on. This is one of my favorites. Today, I went to the farmers market and they had THREE Quarts of blueberries for $5.00!!!!! Of course, I could not pass. I made this as soon as I came home. I still have one more quart of blueberries.....We will see what I make. Just to let you know, this pie turned out so good. It was fresh and so yummy. I served it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream


The crust:
(The crust recipe is from

4cps flour
3TB sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cp. of vegetable shortening
1/2 cp. cold water
1 egg

1. I use my food processor. I throw the first 4 ingredients in the processor. I process the dough until it like a coarse meal.
2. I whisk the egg and water. I add it slowly to the dough and process.
3. Put the dough in fridge for 2 hrs.

The berries:

5 cps. of blueberries
the juice and zest of one lemon
1 cp. sugar
3 TB of cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

1. I put these 6 ingredients together and toss. Let it sit.

When the dough is done. I separate it into two parts. The first part I roll out and have enough to fit the bottom. Put the dough on the greased pie pan. Add the filling.
I then roll out the second pie crust and make a lattice crust. Then I top with 4 TB of melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon. It makes a nice crust on the crust.......
