Bainbridge Island Blueberry Pie

Fun fact: I've never ever made a pie. My mom and I went blueberry picking last week and needed a way to use up the huge bucket of blubes we brought home. Talk about fresh! These berries went from plant to table in only a couple hours (it could've been sooner but I took a nap). Below is the final result.

Blueberry Pie


Ingredients
- Pie crust (Recipe)
- 6 cups of fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 and  1/4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- egg wash (1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon cream)

1. Make pie crust according to recipe. Place 3/4 in pie dish and mold to sides.
2. Place in refrigerator and chill for 20 minutes.
3. While the crust is chilling, mix blueberries, flour, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg in bowl. Add to pie dish.


4. Cover pie with the rest of pie dough. Place in refrigerator and chill for 20 minutes.


5. Bake according to pie crust recipe.
6. Let rest until cooled and then serve...with ice cream!

{This is my second slice if you couldn't tell because I ate the first one
 so fast & forgot to take a picture,  how embarrassing}

*Tip: place on baking sheet while baking incase of spillage

I've only made two pies in my life and only one worked out well! This blueberry pie looks soooo yummy. If you have more blueberries you should make a blueberry crumble :)

The recipe Bainbridge Island Blueberry Pie is good for preparing.But i wonders that whether this blue berry is available every where or not.The preparation procedure is sound and everyone can prepare this recipe from this article.
