Are you a blueberry lover? I received a call from a reader asking for a blueberry pie recipe - specifically one in which the berries do NOT need to be cooked or thickened beforehand. As with all baking queries, my first thought was to call my mother!
With all the cooking I do, one aspect of the kitchen that I have in NO WAY mastered is pie. Pie crust defies me. I have a million 'perfect' crust recipes. It doesn't matter. Pie is my nemesis.
BUT, I have my mother's secret weapon. Her name is Fannie. Fannie Farmer, to be exact. Everyone, say hello to Fannie Farmer. The best cookbook ever compiled.
So, dear reader, here is your recipe - Blueberry Pie according to Fannie. I didn't even transcribe it. The old parchment of this book lends to great pictures. And don't you just love the old-fashioned font?
Happy pie making!
