Blueberry Pie


I came across this simple blueberry pie recipe from allrecipes.com, click here for the original recipe.  I mostly followed the recipe but lowered the oven temperature from the original recipe.  Based on the recipe reviews, most said to lower the temperature.  I did let my crust get a little more brown than I probably wanted to but it still tasted delicious.  This is also the first time I made a lattice top pie crust and I followed Simply Recipes tutorial.  It wasn't that hard to do and was surprisingly easy.  I enjoyed this blueberry pie and it tasted even better the next day.  I suggest serving this pie with homemade whipped cream or you can serve it a la mode with some vanilla ice cream.
