TWD: Double Crusted Blueberry Pie
This weeks TWD is Double Crusted Blueberry Pie. Doesn't that just sound like 4th of July? We had neighbors over for the 4th and they all wanted to thank Amy of South in Your Mouth for picking this wonderful treat. Now I am not really a pie eater. Or a blueberry eater for that matter, but this is definitely a keeper.
I started on Friday morning, got all my ingredients together for the crust (which is the absolute best), and began to put things together.
Now I had a small food processor. I think it was a 3 cup. So I new that I would have to do this crust in two batches, I mean look at all that flour and do I need to mention the butter? Got through the first batch no problem, wrapped it up and threw it in the fridge. Then started on the second batch and don't you know that it died. Just like that, no more processing. I started fussing at the hubby, cause you know if anything breaks he needs to fix it now now now! He did up and started unscrewing things, and really tried to get it going. After tinkering with it a bit he declared it a dead processor. I so didn't have time for this. Oh, did I mention that I haven't bought a new gadget for a couple of weeks. So I headed out to Target and got this 7 cup food processor...
I got it home and finished up the crust with ease. WooHoo! I love new gadgets!
After we ate breakfast, I got out my filling ingredients and tossed them together. Then went to rolling out the pie dough. I didn't do the best job, but it fit the pie plate.
I filled my pie and put the top crust on. I was so proud. I didn't have any unintentional holes anywhere. Here it is right before going into the oven.
After the proper cooking time, I took out my lovely pie. OK my homely pie.
The verdict for this pie. I had one person say that it was the pest pie she had ever had, another say that he loved it, and for me a not to fond of pie or blueberry type person, I loved it too!
