American As... Blueberry Pie

Fourth of July holiday went by awfully fast- Angels on game on Friday night, Saturday hanging by the pool with family, and Sunday relaxing at home. Now I'm back at work with have my tan lines and one last piece of pie to remind me of the glorious long weekend that was. Double Crusted Blueberry Pie was the perfect choice for this week's TWD. I made it after work on Thursday night and it came together beautifully.





I substituted graham cracker crumbs for the bread crumbs and added a little extra lemon juice to the berries. My only misstep was forgetting to apply the egg wash before baking (note to self, bake first, cocktails second) but overall the pie was deliciously buttery and the berries were the perfect combination of sweet and tart. I can't wait to try this crust with cherries!

Very pretty pie, and I agree with the graham cracker sub. And what's wrong with cocktails + baking?

But cocktails are a form of baker's helper, aren't they?! ;-)
