Blueberry Pie

Yesterday, Tyler had his first soccer game of the season. Ted and Sue came down and helped us out by going to his game since Aubrey was napping and I had a haircut scheduled at the same time. Afterward, Ted and I worked on our taxes.

We offered our humble thanks for their help by making a dinner of lasagna, garlic bread, Italian chopped salad and blueberry pie a la mode. We ended our day by playing a game of Citadels while the kids played outside. I. Love. Saturdays. :)

I've made this blueberry pie lots of times. It's easy, I usually have the ingredients on hand, and Wayne likes it. Since he's not big on dessert, it's nice to have a go-to recipe that I know he'll enjoy.

As you can see, I have still not mastered the art of a nice-looking crust. I think I need to keep practicing making pies so I can master the crust. Sounds like a good excuse, don't you think?

Blueberry Pie

3 1/2 - 4 c. fresh or frozen blueberries (depending on size of your pie pan)
3 T. flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. lemon juice

Mix the above together and place in unbaked crust in 9" pan.

Top with crumb topping:
1 stick softened butter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar

Bake at 400 for 10 minutes and then at 350 for 35 more minutes.
