Blueberry Pie

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 sticks chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
The trick is to keep everything COLD. Using pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour/salt/sugar. Add tablespoon by tablespoon of freezing cold ice water into mixture. Up to maybe 8 or 9. Divide into two pieces, form to discs and wrap in plastic wrap. Cool it down for at least an hour. Roll out. I roll on floured surface, with plastic wrap between the crust and the roller. Blind bake it for a bit, like 375 for 20 minutes so.

I don't know what my recipe is for the filling.....but it's something like 6 cups of blueberries (de-thawed and drained), 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, lemon juice, ginger, and cinnamon. Just sprinkle, season and test. Adjust accordingly. Bake for 45 minutes or so.
