Notes

We were watching America Test Kitchen and they made this Blueberry Pie. We used our pie dough. The pie was amazing. I think this was the first Blueberry Pie we have made. I would say it is worth a try. The recipe called for a dough that uses Vodka. When we try it I will post it. It does sound interesting.

The Recipe for the pie dough in on my blog: http://canadianbakertoo.blogspot.com/search/label/Pie%20Crust

there are major steps missing from this recipe. Nonetheless I impovised and it is in the oven now.

A dash of local for every season
