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?
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.
