Local blueberries are now in season. Baked my favorite blueberry pie. The recipe comes from an old Canadian Living Magazine (Early '80's.)
All butter crust with leaves cut free-hand.
Decorated the edge of pie crust with leaves.
I've made this recipe for years. I think it was from an early 1980's Canadian Living Magazine.
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- milk, sugar
- pastry for double crust (recipe)
Line pie plate with pastry.
Mix together blueberries, 3/4 cup sugar, flour and cinnamon (if using) and melted butter; pour into pie crust. Cover with pastry and cut a few slashes in top; or cut pastry into strips and prepare lattice top. Seal edges well and flute. Brush lightly with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in 425°F oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 35o°F and bake about 40 minutes longer or until crust is golden.
