Fresh Blueberry Pie
Why I Love This Recipe
Two summers ago when making a fresh bluberry pie I accidentally added two tablespoons of lemon juice rather than two teaspoons as called for in the Bettter Homes and Gardens recipe I had been following for years. My husband declared it the best blueberry pie he had ever had so I have of course continued the "accident". He picked blueberries from our yard yesterday and we had our first pie of the season.
While I'm not including the pie dough recipe, I recommend making your own rather than using anything from the store.
