Blueberry Pie: "With thick, fruity juice bubbling through the crust."

Blueberry Pie! Thanks to my good friend Laurie, I was able to use some lovely frozen blueberries to make this great looking pie.


Before the top was added: Pretty Purple!






This pie was pretty simple to put together and really didn't have many ingredients either. I used the two crust recipe, as usual, on page 299.  The simplicity of the Berry Pie recipe in Betty made me a smidge hesitant, seeing as how this was my first Blueberry Pie. I hope my taste testers can give me some real pointers this time.







The tips given for a frozen berry pie were pretty much, if the fruit was sweetened when frozen, use less sugar. I'm sorry but really? I had to bake this pie for almost 20 more minutes than the recipe stated, because a few of the berries were still frozen. I would also recommend putting a little foil top on the pie, so the crust will not burn because of the extra time in the oven.

Finished product!

I am sharing this Blueberry Pie with my classmates from a Poetry Writing Class, I have been taking for the past 10 weeks. Lucky, duckies.
