Recipe--Blueberry Pie

My kids love to watch this show called Word World. In it everything is made up of letters, literally. If you want a boot you get the letters and squish them together and walla, you have a boot, house, animals whatever. The other day, someone on the show made a pie, my husband loved it, it actually said p i e, he thought it was so cool that I should do it. So ..OK! I did, tonight I made the tool man the best blueberry pie around and made it to say P I E. The kids of course thought it is so cool, even Kate my 17 yr old. My tool man loved it. Enjoy the pictures, and if you want to make it yourself here is the recipe.

2 1/2 C. Flour
1 heaping C. Crisco
1/2 C. ice cold water w/
1/2 t. vinegar in it

Cut shortening into flour, then gently mix in water. Roll out yadda yadda yadda.

Blueberry Pie Filling

4 C. fresh or frozen blueberries
3/4 to 1 C. sugar
3 T. flour
1/2 t. grated lemon peel
dash salt
1/2 t each cinnamon and nutmeg
2-3 t lemon juice
1 T. butter

the recipe says to combine then put into pie shell. but personally I can never get this to work, the blueberries seem to still be runny at the end. So......what I do is combine all but the butter in a pan, cook it until thick, add the butter, let it cool then put it into the shell and bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes. It comes out perfect every time. Add a scoop of ice cream, and you got yourself love on a plate. Enjoy
