Blueberry Crumb Pie

 

017pie

I am on vacation this week, ahh yes …glorious vacation.  I am enjoying the last few days of summer immensely, along with the freedom; freedom to still sleep in, freedom before the craziness of both school and soccer begin. Vacation is wonderful and I am spending it with my two favorite people, my two sons.  We enjoyed time together at the beach, going to the movies, lounging by the pool and just being lazy…indoors, in the cool of the a/c, watching movies.

Being on vacation has also given me more time to bake …and bake I have.  I made a blueberry pie using a recipe of my mom’s.  Now, my mom’s original recipe calls for blackberries but I had some blueberries I needed to use and I really just prefer blueberries.  This recipe is made with a delicious crumb topping that makes for a yummy extra treat.  Serve this up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whip cream topping.  Perfect for summer picnics and Fiesta Friday.  Enjoy

  1. What a lovely vacation you had, Arl. I’ve been longing for a vacation that sounds like yours. It must have been so fun with nothing much to worry about – just what to bake or what movies to watch. And this blueberry crumb pie is really an amazing treat for FF. 😀 Happy FF to you and have a lovely weekend!

    • LOL, I like how you think! I thought the same thing when looking at the pictures I took. I almost thought to rename it to something like Blueberry Cobbler Pie …but I decided that sounded silly, haha 🙂 Thanks so much. Happy Weekend to you!!
