BLUEBERRY PIE

TWD: BLUEBERRY PIE GOODNESS
FINALLY! From the day I purchased the book, "From My Home To Yours", by Dorie Greenspan, I ogled this recipe while simultaneously wiping the drool from my mouth. Amy from South In Your Mouth picked this week's Dorie recipe: Double Crusted Blueberry Pie- a.k.a. Blueberry heaven! I. Love. Blueberry. Pie. 
I'm not such a huge pie fan in general, but Blueberry pie could be my all time favorite, for sure! Pair it up with some vanilla ice cream and it most certainly could bear some resemblance to heaven. I really enjoyed this recipe, especially the addition of the lemon rind and juice, which I ended up doubling; giving the pie a great tart flavor. The pie dough was easy, quick to make, and very pliable to work with.  I had some extra dough so I made flowers to garnish with as well as a mini strawberry pie! It was delicious!
Mini Strawberry Pie!

If I haven't already made it clear, this pie was so tasty. I paired it with vanilla ice cream and served it for my 4th of July BBQ which comprised of Chinese take out and wine!  Thankfully there was one item of food on the table that was 4th of July-worthy! Check out the other TWD'ers pies. Thanks Amy for choosing this amazing recipe!

The big pie looks wonderful as does the baby pie. I made big and little too, and I liked the little best. For some reason, chinese food sounds awful good, even on the fourth.

Everyone makes this crust sound foolproof. I've got to give it a try!
