Blueberry Pie

Blueberries were on sale the other day
First attempt at a lattice top...not perfect ; )


Blueberry Pie
4 cups fresh blueberries
7 Tbsp. corn starch
3 Tbsp. water or grape juice
2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
2- 9 in. pie crusts, could be premade as I used or from scratch

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Rinse berries under cool water, removing any bits of stem or mushy berries from the bunch.  Roll out one (9 in.) pie crust  and place in a deep dish pie pan.  Place berries onto the bottom crust.  In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and allspice.  Add water and lemon juice and stir until well combined and pour over blue berries.  After rolling out your top crust, place over berries and seal, trimming off the excess edges.  Bake for an hour.

You may prefer to do a lattice top, as I did in my picture; however, that was my first try and I saw in the picture that I didn't place the strips of dough as I should have ; )  The website suggests a graham crust which sounds nice or a crumb topping...maybe next time.
