Blueberry Pie Recipe

You asked for it….
and my mom was happy to share…
her Blueberry Pie Recipe with all of you.
Really it’s the BEST blueberry pie I’ve ever had.
I request it any time she askes what I’d like her to make for dessert.
If you didn’t see my post about Blueberry Pie, it’s here
but the recipe is below.


BLUEBERRY PIE   
 
      Double Pie Crust  - 10inch Pie Plate
         2 cups unbleached flour (just fluff & measure)
        1/2 teaspoon salt (blend into flour)
        1/3 cup butter (cold)
        1/3 cup crisco vegetable solid shortening  
    Using a pastry blender – blend until all flour is absorbed
    Now add 6 tablespoons ice water all at once
    Quickly using a fork, mix well
    Form a ball lightly with your hand
    Cut ball in half, place one half covered in fridge, roll the other half
        out over a lightly flowered surface with a rolling pin
    Place the rolled crust in the pie plate – trim crust with sissors leaving a half
        inch hang over rim

    Prepare filling in a large bowl:
    Blend – 7 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
                 1 cup sugar
                 1/4 cup tapioca
                 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    Place in unbaked crust – pile high in center
    Dot blueberries with a little butter near center
   
    Roll remaining dough, fold in half gently placing over filled pie
    Trim – leaving one inch past edge of pie plate
    Turning extra dough under all around edge, flute edge, cover with
        strips of foil.  Add a small amount of milk to brown,  make 4 small slits
        near center, top pie with a pinch of sugar.

    BAKE 425 preheated oven.  Bake until some blueberry juice starts bubbling
    Set timer 50 minutes, and every 5 minutes till done (mine takes 1 hr. 5 min.)

    That pie is SO gorgeous! Pie crusts are the bane of my existence, but I'll give Mom's a try. I would happily make one of these and just serve it for dinner tonight … :)

    Don't you just love it when mom finally shares her pie recipes? I had to be married before my mom would give me her peach pie recipe.

    I'm new to your lovely blog. I've never cooked with tapioca before. Are you using tapioca pudding or something else? It's a beautiful pie. Thank you for the recipe.
