Blueberry Bliss

When I consider my favorite pies of all time, blueberry has to be somewhere very near the top. I especially like a fresh pie with blueberries that still pop when you bite into them. They are so sweet and wonderful! The perfect flaky crust adds just the right foundation for the cooked filling. A spoonful of freshly whipped cream brings everything together like a cool breeze under a shady tree on a sunny day. Nothing in the world can be too wrong if you have a beautiful blueberry pie to share with your family.

This is the best recipe I've found for Blueberry pie. It comes from the Farm Journal Country Cookbook.

Fresh Blueberry Pie

3/4 cup sugar
3 TBSP corn starch
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
2 cups blueberries
1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP lemon juice
2 cups blueberries
1 baked 9" shell
sweetened whipped cream

Combine sugar, cornstarch, salt. Add water, 2 cups blueberries. Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly till boils, thick, clear. Remove. Stir in butter, juice. Cool. Place 2 cups blueberries in shell. Cover with cooked mixture and chill.
