Blueberry Pie

If you read yesterday's post, you know that this past weekend I made homemade pie dough for the first time. Well, the type of pie that I made with the dough was blueberry!

With blueberries being fresh and in season right now, I decided that I was going to make a blueberry pie. I don't actually have blueberry pie very often because, if I have a choice, I almost ALWAYS choose strawberry rhubarb, also because that's what my family likes best. I might have to start having blueberry more often though, because this pie was delicious! Everyone in my family agreed too - we polished this pie right off!

It was so delicious, and definitely worth the extra time. When you know that you made it from scratch, not only do you know exactly what is in it, but you can eat it with the joy of kniwing you made it yourself.
