Blueberry Pie Recipe
- One double recipe for all butter pie crust dough
- 6 cups of fresh (or frozen) blueberries, rinsed and stems removed (if using frozen, defrost and drain first)
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (for thickening)
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp butter (unsalted), cut into small pieces
Egg wash ingredients:
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
1 Prepare the crust. Roll out half of the dough to 1/8-inch-thick circle on a lightly floured work surface, about 13 inches in diameter. Fit the dough over a 9-inch pie pan, and trim the edges to a 1/2 inch over the edge all around the pan. Put into the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes.
2 Gently mix the blueberries, sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Transfer them to the chilled bottom crust of the pie pan. Dot with butter pieces. Roll out remaining dough to the same size and thickness as the first. Place on top of the berry filling. Tuck the top dough over and under the edge of the bottom dough, and crimp the edges with your fingers. Transfer the pie to the refrigerator to chill until the dough is firm, about 30 minutes. Heat oven to 425°F.
3 Whisk egg and milk together to make an egg wash.
4 Remove the unbaked pie from refrigerator. Brush the top with egg wash. Score the pie on the top with 4 cuts (so steam can escape while cooking). Place the pie on the middle rack of the oven with a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking pan positioned on the lower rack to catch any filling that may bubble over. Bake for 20 minutes at 425°. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake for 30 to 40 minutes more or until juices are bubbling and have thickened. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Let cool completely before serving.
Makes 8 servings.
I love having people over to celebrate pi day!
I got to talk to several people that I really wanted to talk to, one in particular.
This event will be celebrated every year!

I'm at work with nothing to do :( So what do I do, blog postSo as the previous post says...
I lost my phone to an automatic toilet :( ! I have a new phone, so :) !
Then on Saturday, I had to work and then I watched my nephew Kaleb!He is such a cutie! Kaleb stayed over night and boy did he kick that night. Good thing hes still cute.
Melanie and I had a record for the number of people who came over (not in a party setting) yesterday!Breakfast- I made crepes again! So...we thought we should invite people
-Charlie-Garrett-AldenWe had a good time....I really do love crepes
Melanie had a presidency meeting as well-Cathy-Shayla (middle one)-Meekayla( Right one)
Then my family stopped by
It was nice to just chat and visit
Then church....I really do love that every week I get to go and take the sacrament and feel uplifted. Its great! I really am going to miss my ward when I have to move. Its just like home to me. I've been attending for almost four years. The people have changed, but its still home. There are so many things that I love about it.
There was a funny moment...I went to the bathroom (It seems lots of funny times occur in bathrooms lately)....There was something wrong with one of the toilets in the girl's bathroom. The water would not stop running. So I go out into the hall and tell a member of the bishopric that there is something wrong. Well "pretty blue eyed boy" (lol) pipes in and says hes good with toilets. So then of course we go into the bathroom together. It was just funny, talking with a "pretty blue eyed boy" over a toilet, at church alone, in a girl's bathroom. Our conversation was funny also. We were discussing graduate school and he told me that right now I am at prime marrying age and if I go to Austin (and don't find a boy) then it might be to late to head up to Utah. Just a random story.
Dinner- Melanie and I made "Shrimp Chicken Goodness" or that is what Chris called it.
-Chris (Far Right)-Isaac (Sad no pictures of Isaac and I)We had a wonderful evening full of laughter. We made a good dish and ate a lot. Then we played Liverpool Rummy. Issac won. There were lots of good things that we laughed at...
My favorite part of the evening was when Melanie was in the living room and shouted "CHRIS!"
He replies "I didn't do it." Me and Issac looked around with confused faces! Melanie had just went to the bathroom...so in my head I was thinking something terrible had happened in there. However, apparently PJ pooped in the bathroom on our blue rug. LOL. Chris saw it but didn't say anything...but when Melanie came in it sounded like she was accusing Chris.
So the moral of the story is- don't invite Chris over because he poops on your floor...and talks bad about your state! lol.
