Blueberry Pie

We had made blueberry pie earlier this month. We have finally figured out the photo upload auto-backup with Google Photos problem (hopefully) It appears that it will not backup if wifi is turned on for some odd reason. Anyways, we had fresh blueberries and the first thing we decided to make was this blueberry pie. It was really yummy wit some vanilla ice cream. The filling came out pretty perfect. The crust we used a pilsbury premade crust so it was just okay, but it was super fast and easy!

Here's the original recipe for the pie filling: http://www.food.com/recipe/perfect-blueberry-pie-filling-228641

Delicious filling is ready!

1 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 individual pie crusts

Directions:

1. Combine 1 cup berries with 3/4 cup sugar in pan.
2. Simmer on low heat until sugar is melted and mixture is very liquid; about 5 minutes.
3.Combine cornstarch and water in bowl.
4. Add to pan with blueberries.
5. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to full boil and is clear and thick.
6. Pour hot mixture into large bowl.Cool until warm.
7. Fold in remaining 3 cups of blueberries, lemon rind, cinnamon,nutmeg and butter.
8. Let cool before adding to pie crust. Make sure to spray the pie pan before putting the crust in!
9. Add top crust.
10. Preheat oven to 400°F but reduce heat to 375°F when you put pie in oven. Bake about 40 minutes. Check pie halfway through baking; cover edges with a strip of foil if edges are getting too brown.

What we liked:

The filling was really great and it was very quick and simple to put together! Will definitely keep for future!

What we didn't like:

Nothing, it was great - The crust would be better if it was home-made - so we should work on that next time. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He was not into the pie. Astrid loved the ice cream that came with the pie.
