Blueberry Pie Day

We made a blueberry pie!  Two blueberry pies, to be exact.

Tuesday marked Blueberry Pie Day, a day that has previously passed by completely unnoticed on our calendars.  But, this year we decided to celebrate properly, and we were oh-so-glad that we did!

We started with Pillsbury pie crusts… because frankly, that’s how we roll.  Last summer we had gone blueberry picking, and we still had a couple bags of our fresh-picked berries tucked away in the freezer.  This seemed like a worthwhile project for pulling them out.  Then we mixed up a bunch of blueberry gooey-ness with the help of this recipe.

I had planned to just top the mixture with the second crust, cut slits in it and call it a pie.  But the lattice top in the pictures looked so delightful that we decided to give it a try.

Version 2 And our finished product turned out lovely.  And delicious!

IMG_4843When I think of baking (or even eating) a pie, blueberry does not usually jump to mind.  But after this yummy experiment, I’m betting it will become at least a once-a-year treat.  Hooray for more reasons to celebrate!
