Yum! Pie is delicious, so I say eat it in as many ways as possible :) For this recipe, all you need is your favorite pie crust recipe (I use one from Williams Sonoma) and your favorite pie filling. In case you don't have a favorite recipe for pie filling, here's one to try:
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup water
- 4 cups frozen blueberries
- Juice from 1/2 of an orange
Combine the dry ingredients in a pot and then whisk in your water. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour in your frozen blueberries. Stir constantly until it starts to look like pie filling. Hahah. Seriously, though, stir it constantly while it is boiling until the mix becomes dark and thick, and the back of the spoon is coated with a semi-translucent coating.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out your pie crust and lay it over a 9x13 pan. Press the crust around the edges, removing any excess. Cover with tinfoil, pressing it against the crust. Prebake with the tinfoil on for fifteen minutes or until the tinfoil peels back without sticking.
After you remove the tinfoil, continue to prebake for another 10-15 minutes or until it is golden brown. Lower the oven temperature to 375.
Sprinkle the crust with flour and sugar, then add your blueberry filling. Pop it in the oven for an additional 30-35 minutes, until the crust is browned and the filling bubbles.
Optional: top with a dusting of powdered sugar.
