Blueberry Pie – I have read about, I heard about and I even saw it in the bakery department of a supermarket. But I had actually never eaten one, much less made one. Which is kind of strange, because I love blueberries a lot, any kind of berries for that matter, and we eat them all the time in our Green Smoothies or in breakfast cereal. But blueberry pie? Never. Until one day out of the blue the thought crossed my mind – ‘why not make a blueberry pie?! But instead of blueberry pie we ended up having … pie i.e. vegetable, chicken, turkey, something pie. Very yummy and I love it, but so not sweet.
Then a few weeks later all of a sudden David mentioned… blueberry pie. Now, he certainly does have a bit of a sweet tooth, right, you wouldn’t know looking at him, but he does. However, he hardly ever, more like never asks for a cake. Or pie. Naturally that meant that I just had to make one. Checking the cabinets – flour, check – butter, check, blueberries – ch.. whoops, not so many. Got to go shopping. But I hate shopping, so what can I do. What else do we have, bananas, hmmmm. o.k. I am always good for trying something new and David is an exceptional good guinea-pig.
So, I quickly mixed and kneaded the pie dough and chilled it in the fridge while preparing the sugar, flour mix, washed (and dried) the blueberries and peeled and sliced a couple of bananas. I rolled out half of the dough and placed it in the pie form, covered it with banana slices and then filled it with the blueberries to the top – perfect! Then sprinkle the sugar, flour mix on it and top it with the other half of thinly rolled out dough. To let the hot steam escape from the inside of the pie, you have to cut some kind of holes in the top. To give it a nice color I glazed it with a little egg-substitute. And about 40 minutes or so later – et voila. My very first blueberry pie, served with whipped cream.
p.s. please don’t be so harsh on the photos. They were snapped in the spur of the moment with my phone 😉
