Wednesdays Unplugged - True Blueberry Pie

By Homesmsp @HomesMSP

"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness...the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the  world, man will have discovered fire." ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes...and love getting recipes you would like to share!  

We spent several days on the south shore of Lake Superior last week with dear friends. It wasn't sunny and warm... in fact, we came home from a rainy day in the 30's to learn it had hit 70 degrees in the metro! But that didn't matter.

For some reason I have always been drawn to the crashing waves of November. Must be like my attraction to blizzards and summer storms. There is something about the universal power of nature...


We had the most delicious blueberry pie Jane made for our visit... of course it helped that the blueberries were huge, ones they had hand picked last summer!  Recipe was from Moosewood Cookbook.


  • Blueberry pie
    1 double recipe pie crust (see below)
  • extra flour for handling the dough
  • 6 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen/defrosted)
  • 2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemonn juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons flour
Preheat oven to 375° F. Make a double recipe of pie crust dough, and divide it into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Lightly sprinkle a clean work surface with flour, and roll out the larger piece until it becomes a circle large enough to fit a 9-inch pie pan. Fit it into the pan, building it up slightly at the edges. Roll out the smaller piece of dough into a thin circle. Cut it into narrow strips (about 1/4 inch wide), and gently set them aside.

Place the berries in a medium-sized bowl and sprinkle them with all the remaining ingredients. Toss very gently until the berries are evenly coated. Pour the berry mixture into the crust, and decorate the top with the strips of dough in a criss-cross pattern.

Place the pie pan on a tray, and bake in the bottom half of the oven for 45 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly all around the edges and the crust is lightly browned. Cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
