So in honor of Pi[e] day and my mother who is the Princess of Pie (my grandmother is the Queen) here is a blueberry pie recipe for you:
(I wish I had a picture for you but it got lost...I will take one and load it soon. For now use your imagination... A glossy delicious chilled blueberry pie with fresh whipped cream....)
makes 1 9"pie
9" baked pie shell (use your favorite recipe...I have one but that's for a different time)
5 cups fresh blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 Tbls cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cranberry/cran-apple/cran-raspberry juice [you can use water too]
1 Tbls butter
1 Tbls lemon juice
In a microwave-safe bowl or a sauce pan mix sugar, cornstarch, salt, and juice. Add 2 cups of blueberries and stir well. Microwave or cook 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally until the mixture is thick and glossy.
Once removed from heat stir in the butter and lemon juice.
Spread the other 3 cups of blueberries in the pie shell. Pour the hot blueberry mixture over them evenly.
Let the pie chill until firm before serving with LOTS of whipped cream.
Cheers. [and Happy Pi(e) Day!]
