Blueberry Pie

I grew up picking blueberries in the summertime.  We’d make pies, muffins, and fruitbowl.  My favorite was always pie.  If I could manage to hide a piece, I liked to save it and have it for breakfast.  To this day, every time I eat a blueberry, I think of my summers on the lake.



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix sugar, flour, lemon peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together.
  3. Carefully fold in the blueberries.
  4. Line pie pan with pie crust.
  5. Fill crust with berries and dot with butter.
  6. Cover with top crust and crimp edges.
  7. Cut heat vents in top of pie—we always put the initial of the smallest child on top.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes at 425°, reduce heat to 350° and bake for 30 more minutes.
