Reader Recipe: Abby’s Blueberry Pie
“I think it looks a little sad because I used my glass pie plate which is a deeper than I remembered so it doesn’t have that nice plumped up effect. It’s based on a family recipe that both my mother and my grandmother made, which we all tend to play fast and loose with. This pie combines half cooked fruit with half fresh fruit, so you can sugar and spice up the cooked part but still get the freshness of the raw fruit. ”
Makesone 10" pie
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water (or fruity white wine or juice)
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
