I Love summer,
I really love winter,
I love the cold and snow,
mIght have something
to do with menopause.
But today I love summer.
Blueberries on sale,
at the Giant.
Pulled out my
Best Blueberry Pie recipe.
It is all yours.
You can make your own crust,
But the store brand ones run as
cheap as $1.15.
My time is worth that.
You will need 2 (9) inch pie crusts,
Take note here, “Deep Dish”.
Graham cracker is best.
For the filling:
8 cups of blueberries (or any mixed berry including strawberries)
14 tablespoons cornstarch
6 tablespoons grape juice
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 +1/3 cup sugar (or 2/3 cup sugar,2/3 cup splenda)
Wash the berries and pick out the stems.
If using strawberries cut them up how you like.
Mix all ingredients except for berries in a bowl.
Divide the berries between the 2 pie crusts.
Pour the wet ingredients over the berries as evenly as you can.
It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Rustic is good.
Bake the pies at 375 F for one hour.
If you put the pie pans into a larger baking or roasting pan you won’t have to worry about runover and a smoky house.
If you want a yummy cripy crumb topping for the pies well
here ya go…
1/2 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup splenda)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup margarine
Margarine should be cold.
Mix so that crumbs form but even if they don’t you can
separate the mixture off into little bits over the pies.
There are 3 things I like about this pie.
1. It tastes great.
2. It’s super easy.
3.It keeps in the fridge for a week at least and still tastes great.
and lastly 4. it’s a double recipe so…
you can take one to your neighbor,
or the firestation guys,
or to work,
or to somebody,
who doesn’t get much lovin’,
cause nothing says lovin’,
like something from the oven.
And who doesn’t love a slice of summer?
I mean pie!
