Easy Blueberry Pie

This Blueberry Pie is a family recipe that has been passed down through the generations.  It’s simple, classic and delicious!

Blueberry Pie

This Blueberry Pie is a family recipe on my husband’s side.  It’s his Grandmother, Miranda Heath’s recipe. 

I don’t know the story of where she got it from – her mother, made it up or even a cook book.  All I know is that it’s referred to as Miranda Heath’s Blueberry Pie.

And that is all I really need to know.

This summer I’ve taken my kids berry picking – A LOT.

We went strawberry picking twice, raspberry picking and finally blueberry picking.

I really wanted my kids to see how fruit was grown and where it comes from.  Plus I really wanted them to taste it straight from the garden and how fresh and delicious it was.

We found a local blueberry farm with fairly young plants that were loaded this year and got to picking. 

The entire time we were picking, my daughter couldn’t stop talking about how desperately she wanted a blueberry pie.

Apparently that’s the only thing she could think of to use them for and desperately wanted me to make one.

Keep in mind, she doesn’t like blueberries and refused to even try one.

So when we got home, we took a pint over to our 93 year old neighbor and gave a bowl full to my in-laws.

Liz, my mother in law, knew of Amelie’s desire to have Blueberry pie and whipped up the family recipe passed on from her mother-in-law.

We were so excited when we showed up and found this beautiful blueberry pie made with the blueberries that Amelie picked.  Lucky us!

And lucky indeed as it was really tasty!  A dash of whipped cream on top and we each devoured a slice and took some home for later!

This pie isn’t full of fillers.  It’s a classic blueberry pie at it’s finest and has held true and steady over the generations!
