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!
