Pretty Pies

When I was in Maine, everything was blueberries and lobsters.  I'm not a fan of lobster but I love blueberries.  My husband had to have some blueberry pie so he ordered it one day and I took a bite.  What a delicous miracle!  I'd never had it before ... I know, I'm clearly sheltered ... but what a delicious surprise it was especially with Maine wild blueberries.  So, I found frozen Maine wild blueberries and made a pie today.  The recipe I followed said to make a lattice crust for the top. 

Next thing I knew, I was looking at all these really pretty pies ...

This is great ... but, seriously, I really don't have time for that.

I absolutely love this one!

Patriotic pie!

Mine isn't nearly as beautiful ...

... but I really made this pie for my wonderful husband who has been so supportive and understanding lately and I'm quite sure he couldn't care less what it looks like.  I haven't tried it yet, but remembering the bite I had in Maine, I think I may have some trouble resisting eating the entire thing!


  1. It looks great - and really all that matters is that it tastes great. I love blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream, but I don't love getting blue stained teeth when I eat it.

  2. Blueberry pie is my favorite kind!!! It looks yummy to me !
    Honestly, I don't know what they do in magazines when they take photos of pies that don't have darker areas on the crusts...I always suspect that a food stylist probably is using a fake pie for the photos or one that is only-half-cooked!
    Enjoy your pie!

  3. Your pie looks great Melanie! Blueberry pie is my absolute favorite pie! I made one for our Fourth of July picnic and decorated it with stars and sprinkled it with a little bit of cinnamon sugar. I posted about it if you are interested in seeing what it looked like.

  4. Katie, I've actually managed to avoid getting burned areas on the crust by putting foil around the edges. This time, I had kid-chaos going on so I forgot!

    Grace, The pie was delicious ... but maybe I'd better check my teeth! ;-)


  5. Your pie looks luscious! I'm sure your husband loved it!

  6. It looks amazing. I LOVE blueberries, too.
