Can you believe that I have never tasted a slice of blueberry pie? Blueberries were on sale, and well, doesn’t that always mean it’s time to try a new recipe?
I did some digging and found our family recipe for blueberry pie. I was a little unsure if cinnamon should really be used a an ingredient in this pie, but it was amazing. Cinnamon and warm blueberries is the perfect flavor combination.
I have to say, for this being my very first blueberry pie. It was delicious.
Since we’re talking about firsts, this was my first time taking my four ingredient flaky pie crust and making it into a pretty lattice weave! That was way easier than I thought it would be, and it turned out so pretty. It would have looked a little better if I had cut the strips into equal sized strips, but eh, my guesstimations gave it character, right?
We served this easy homemade blueberry pie with scoops of frozen custard. We each enjoyed a piece of pie while watching a Doctor Who episode. AJ is getting closer to being caught up, we already said goodbye to David Tennant as The Doctor and we’ve moved onto Matt Smith. I’m pretty sure we both cried. At least I know I did. A lot.
If you find yourself with spare blueberries you should probably whip up this pie. Actually, no, scratch that. Go to the store now, buy these ingredients, tie on your Tardis apron (everyone has one of those, right?) and get to baking!
