As promised, the recipe for the blueberry pie that I showed in my post yesterday. But first, fireworkrk pictures!
This year I watched the Macy's fireworks show from NJ. This view has the backdrop of Manhattan and was lovely!
With FOUR fireworks barges, the sky really lit up!
Yay for celebrating America's birthday!
Fresh Blueberry Pie (adapted from all allrecipes.com)
1 prepared 8 inch pastry shell, baked and cooled (click here for no fail pie crust recipe)
2 pints fresh blueberries1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup white sugar
1. Pour one pint of the blueberries into the baked pie shell. (Make sure to rinse the blueberries thoroughly before adding to pie.) (Pie shell should be relatively cool.)
2. Combine flour, butter, lemon juice and sugar in a pan over low heat.. Mix thoroughly until butter is almost completely melted. Add the remaining pint of blueberries and bring just to a boil over medium heat. Berries might begin to pop open.
3. Pour cooked berries over fresh berries. Chill pie and serve chilled or at room temperature with whipped cream.

Happy Fourth of July! Question: What's red, white, and blue?
Well, yes. Blueberries in a red colander with a white table.
Ah! There we go. The American flag!
The fourth of July is my favorite holiday and I made a blueberry pie.
