i don't remember what prompted me but i decided that i needed to make a bluberry pie. oddly enough, none of my cookbooks had a recipe so i turned to my friend the internet. after finding countless "thaw frozen dough, add canned pie filling" recipes i decided to try and put together one of my own. you will need 1 9-inch pie crust. i like to use one i found here, #20984 flaky pie crust posted by teresa m. it's easy to make and use but, if you have your own favorite, go ahead and use it. though i haven't tried it yet, i have a feeling this would be just as good with any other berry, cherry, apple, or even peach filling. one more note - prep time is estimated and depends mainly on your choice of crust.

  5. remove from heat.
  6. make the topping.
  7. mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup flour and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  8. cut in butter (or shortening) until crumbly (if you've got one, a food processor works well. a few pulses should suffice).

  10. add nutmeg and cinnamon (if using) to the 1/2 cup portion.
  11. make the other filling.
  12. add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder to the remaining flour/sugar mixture.
  13. combine 1/2 cup milk, egg, and vanilla. add to dry ingredients and combine until moist.
  14. pour into pie shell.
  15. spoon in blueberry mixture and cut through to marble (use a spoon so you don't accidentally cut through your crust like i did the firt time i made this).
  16. sprinkle reserved 1/2 cup of sugar/flour mixture on top.
  17. dot with butter and garnish with dashes of cinnamon sugar (if desired).
  18. bake 40-45 minutes.

This was a fun recipe, and delicious too. I made the pie crust from Grossmummy's pie crusts - MMMmmmm, then the fillings which were quick and easy. It baked up wonderfully, and tasted like heaven. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
