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.

We would go into the woods and pick fresh blueberries, they were sweet and tiny but oh so good.

This pie is a great childhood memory.

Here is a combination of the two best memories.

These fruits really compliment each other in this pie and the crust is wonderful.
