Blueberry Pies: a Recipe

I made Blueberry Pies this weekend!

And they were delicious!
First I made the CRUST!

2 cups all-purpose flour
I teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Warm the butter in the microwave until it is soft, but not melted.
Mix in a large bowl:
2 cups all-purpose flour
I teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Then cut in using the dough blender:
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Wrap your pie crust in plastic wrap. Then place in refrigerator for 20 or more minutes, while you make the PIE FILLING.


3/4 c. sugar

3 tbsp. corn starch

1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. water
4 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. butter

In saucepan combine sugar, salt and corn starch with water, blueberries and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until thick. Remove from heat and stir in butter.

I made mini pies:

The minis baked for 15 minutes each @ 400.

Then I made a regular sized one:
This baked for about 50 minutes @ 400.
