To all my American readers, friends and family: I hope you’ve had an amazing day of festivities, laughter and most of all food!
Seeing as today is an American holiday I thought I’d conquer my fear of pastries and give pies a try. Having avoided pastries for oh so long, I realized that I didn’t even own a rolling pin! My substitute: a glass tumbler. (Well, you gotta make do with what you have eh).
The pastry dough only took me 10 minutes to prepare and the blueberry mixture took me just as quick. The most time consuming part was leaving the dough to rest before rolling out, and setting the pie aside for an hour before baking. Nevertheless, it was worth making patience my virtue…
Out of the oven emerged a thin, golden crust, encasing an abundance of deep, dark, sapphire-coloured blueberries. The berries were complimented by a slight hint of lemon, which gave the pie a fresh summery taste. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, this dessert is the perfect Fourth of July treat …So I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to continue practicing my pie-making skills. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you conquer your fears.
Love & Blueberry pie kisses,
