Tuedays with Dorie – Double Crusted Blueberry Pie

July 8, 2008

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe came from Amy of South in your Mouth. Amy chose Dorie’s double crusted blueberry pie which made the husband VERY happy. He loves all fruit pies but especially blueberry.

I had a couple issues with this pie. The recipe tells you to mix the blueberries with a ton of flour and sugar and when I dumped the blueberries into the pie shell I ended up with flour and sugar on top. Now this is my fault but I assumed that it would kind of melt into the pie once the heat got to it. Not so. It made a weird crust on top that you can kind of see in the picture. I ended up pulling the pie out halfway through and scraping off what I could but a good bit of it was still there. I also found the end result kind of gritty. You could definitely feel the sugar/flour mixture on the blueberries.

But I’m not going to lie. I had a piece of pie for breakfast two days in a row. The whole pie was gone by the end of the third day. I think with a little tweaking this could be a really good pie.

PS. This was my very first lattice top pie. Yay!
