Blueberry Pie

If I could have any pie in the world, it’d be my Grandma’s chocolate pie. And you all know that. I mean, it’s my favorite food in the world, and I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned it. I just can’t help it.

In fact, I’m not a big fan of fruit pies. Usually I think they’re too syrupy-gooey-mushy…far from the fruit’s original awesomeness. But not this one. I think this blueberry pie rocks, and I want you to have this amazingly simple, true-to-the-berry pie recipe.

It reminds me of dinners at The Phoenix’s grandma’s house when we lived out in Arizona. She’d make this pie from time to time and I always looked forward to it. It’s her mother’s recipe, and boy is it a good one. The sauce adds just the right amount of sweetness and binder for the berries without diminishing the star of the pie one bit.

It’s definitely worth a try.
