Every once in a while, especially in the Summer, I miss New England fare. I'm talking lobster, steamers, chowder, and blueberry pie. After Saturday night's Walkabout, which was a Big Success (!), I needed a little treat. So I made this gorgeous pie, eaten with vanilla ice cream when it was still warm. Lordie Mae. Heaven on a fork. And here's a little tip from Heloise (well, not really but you catch my drift). You know how you have to use shortening to make a flaky pie crust? Well, I heard that the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" baking sticks located right next to the real thing in grocery stores, made for a good one. I shared the pie with DH & 2 friends Sunday night. Monday evening, we finished it off with DH's family. All 6 of them exclaimed that the crust was incredible. Yes, it was awesome so next time you're in a pie mood, try it!
