Four and Twenty Blueberries Baked in a Pie
Laura’s Blog Entry
Because blackbirds in a pie would just be gross. Blueberries are in season and reasonable priced. Every year at this time I do a blueberry pie. I use Martha Stewart’s recipe; I think it was from the magazine, years ago. With one tweaks: A touch of cinnamon. I always add cinnamon to anything with blueberries or strawberries. Not much. Just a small amount brings out the fruit flavor, but doesn’t really taste cinnamon-y. I even put a shake of cinnamon in my strawberry/banana protein shake. It makes it taste sweeter without adding any sugar. I probably used about 1/4 teaspoon for the pie.
This time I cheated and used Pillsbury rolled pie crusts. Not bad for not being homemade. They look really pretty!
I don’t mess with an egg and milk wash for the top. I just brush on plain milk and it still gives a nice sheen.
There is still some left, but not for long. So far each day I’ve only made it to mid-morning before I dig into it. It’s fruit, right? Healthy!
