Apple Blueberry Deep Dish Pie Recipe

Thursday, December 6, 2012

For many years I lived in Upstate NY, known for some of the best apples. When I was growing up I had an Aunt that had a farm, Aunt Esther. We would go into the woods off her land and pick blueberries, they were sweet and tiny but oh so good. She was the best baker and I wished I had some of her recipes. This is just something I think she would have love to try out. Hope you like this one. She was a favorite Aunt of mine and one GREAT COOK.
Here is a comibnation of the two best memories I have of the freshest of wonderful fruits and her. They compliment each other in this pie and the crust is wonderful.

4 Gala or Fugi Apples peeled cored and sliced into wedges
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon melted butter
Cinnamon and sugar mixed together (store bought in shaker) or use 1/4 cup of sugar to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Recipe : (for 2 - 9 inch pie crusts)

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoons salt mix together with flour
2/3 cups shortening cut into the flour then add
