Tuesdays with Dorie: Double-Crusted Blueberry Pie

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Amy of South in Your Mouth and she chose the Double Crusted Blueberry Pie. This recipe caught my eye when I first flipped through the cookbook. The blueberries in the picture looked wonderful and I love a good pie crust, so I knew a double-crusted one couldn’t be bad. This was also the perfect time to make this pie. David and I were visiting his grandparents last week and they have several blueberry bushes and one night we went and picked a ton of fresh blueberries. We came home with this jar full of blueberries:

This was a great pie. I added a bit more sugar to it because we both like our blueberries really sweet. Since it’s just the two of us, I made 1/4 of the recipe of the pie crust and had enough for a double-crusted mini pie. It was enough for us to both have a good taste of it one night. I really liked this pie crust. It was easy to work with and tasted great. It had the right amount of crunchiness and a great flavor. The only drawback is that it contained shortening, and a lot of people have a problem with that, so next time I make a pie I’ll probably try another crust just to see how it compares. I would also like to experiment with making a lattice crust because those are so pretty. Thanks Amy for choosing a great recipe this week! Check out our Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see how everyone else liked the pies!
