Recipe by Leslie in Texas
This blueberry pie uses prepared sugar cookie dough for its crust and decorative stars topping. It's perfect for a Fourth of July gathering. Feel free to use whatever shape you want for the cookie cutouts though. Originally from the food section of the Houston Chronicle in June of 2001.

This was so yummy! And so cute with the star topping. I brought it to a family gathering and everyone loved it. I skipped the whipped cream & served it with vanilla ice cream instead.
