Blueberries


Marc has been bugging me to make a blueberry pie.  The opportunity to get blueberries came last Saturday, when we stopped at Miller’s Northwoods Market on M-22, after a trip to have his ears pierced by his aunt in Manistee.  So now I had the blueberries but someone ate them before I could use them…

Finally I went to pick blueberries yesterday and I took with me Bachelor Joe.  WE drove down Grace Road and turned on Paul Rose Road to find the U-Pick blueberry patch.

Joe learning to pick the perfect berries :mrgreen:

hmmm…There is no fooling me, these are not blueberries 😉

By the time the rain started to drizzle, Joe and I had picked 8 pounds exactly.

And then I made that pie for Marc.  He definitely has a sweet tooth.

I made the
most beautiful
and
tasty pie
EVER!


It came out of the oven at 11 PM. My camera was in the car and I wasn’t going to go and get it. This picture is of the pie after Marc had a big piece of it this morning, and yes, I had some too.  How else could I say it’s the tastiest ever? 🙂

I used the Martha Stewart Pate Brisée  recipe, as usual, but I substituted 1/2 cup of the flour for 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal.  OMGosh it is sooooo tasty.

  1. That is honestly the prettiest pie imaginable! It is even a cover girl of a pie…check out my blog on Cover Girl beet salad and you will know what I mean. I NEVER make things look beautiful…ah well. Is Aunt Del your Aunt?

  2. Pie, Pie,
    Beautiful Pie…….

  3. That pie looks yummy. Please tell Joe we said hi. We met him last summer and had breckfast with him at Elberta Beach Cafe. Craig and Joe are both in consumer products. Maybe that will help him remember us. :o)

    So far it looks like we are going to make it up. Only 36 hours. Can’t wait.

    • You better not answer the phone and get bad news before you leave home to come here, Robbyn.
      I will give Joe your message. Too bad, he’ll be leaving and you’ll be arriving…

      See you Sunday afternoon!
