My friend elroyjones included a yummy family recipe for Blueberry Cake, which was one of my Grammy’s favorites to bake. Then I remembered, I just had a delicious slice of pie from my mom — so here’s that recipe:
Mom’s Maine Blueberry Pie recipe:
9 or 10 inch pie pan – do not grease or spray.
Preheat oven to 400℉
Make a pie crust, using part butter for shortening– enough for a top and a bottom crust. If you refrigerate it for an hour or so, it will roll out more easily. Line the pie pan with the bottom crust.
3/4 c. Sugar
1/4 c. Flour
Mix these ingredients well. Sprinkle the bottom crust, and set the rest aside.
1 Quart Blueberries
(If you can get the small Maine blueberries, do so — nothing tastes like them. But if you can’t, use any other blueberries.) Place berries in the pie pan, and sprinkle them with the rest of the sugar/ flour mixture.
Then sprinkle with Nutmeg and dot with Butter.
(Make your pie look like a pizza, with the butter for pepperoni. That should give you the right amount.)
Add the top crust, cut slits in the top of the pie. Bake at 400℉ for 5 minutes, then reduce heat to 325℉ and bake until your crust is golden and some juice runs out through the slits.
Remember to cool before eating. Enjoy!=
