Last week I wasn't able to do my Dorie bake but this week I made the Double Crusted Blueberry Pie picked by Amy from South in Your Mouth, You can find the recipe for this pie in Dorie's fabulous Baking: From My House To Yoursor at Amy's site.
With the prices of blueberries here being 2.99 euro for 125 grams, I figured out I needed about $20 in blueberries for this pie, now I like to stick to the recipe, but that was a little too much for me. So I used some more of the frozen berries that I also used for the mixed berry cobbler we baked 2 weeks ago.
Shortening is also a thing that is hard to come by on this side of the pond so I used the cheapest hardest margarine I could find as a substitute, which worked out fine.
I used my food processor to mix all the ingredients which made life so much easier. The pie came together very easy. The only thing I forgot was to sprinkle it with sugar but I don't think that that made a lot of difference.
The taste was great, the crust nice and flaky as a pie should be, the berries sweet yet tart, all together a great recipe. Now if only the price of the blueberries came down so I could make it the way it was supposed to be....
With over 200 Dorie members I find it harder and harder to leave comments on everyones blog, so I've decided to just leave comments on a random number of blogs, hope you gal/guys understand!
