Rustic Blueberry Pie
This sweet and juicy Rustic Blueberry pie gives a whole new meaning to “simple as pie”
Twenty six years ago today I married my best friend.
I love waking up next to you every morning. I love that you make me laugh every day. I love sharing everything with you. I love that you put up with me and all my flaws. I love that you are THE best Dad and provider for our family! I love that you NEVER let us down. I love that your family ALWAYS comes first. I love that you tell me I look fabulous when I feel fat. I love that you hug me when I cry. I love that you will go to the store when I don’t feel like going. I love that you will pick up pizza when I don’t feel like cooking. I love that you know me. I LOVE that you LOVE me. I love that it’s painfully obvious that our 2 kids are our 2 kids…… they have good and bad features/traits/habits from each of us. I hope we have managed to set an example for our girls as to what a happy, successful marriage is. I love you honey!
I’d like to say I made this Blueberry Pie for our anniversary, but truth is, Steve isn’t a fan of pie. But he is a fan of allowing me to do what makes me happy. That’s why I’m able to blog, he knows it makes me happy to be in the kitchen, he knows how excited I get when I pull out my camera and all the stuff I need to get “just the right shot”! And most of all, he knows how much I love to come here and share it all on TidyMom!
Food bloggers, Shauna Ahern, Justin Schwartz, Garrett McCord and Ashley Baron Rodriguez, came up with Pie Party 2012, where bloggers could share their pie posts on an official Facebook page . I’m submitting this super easy Rustic Blueberry Pie. There will be plethora of wonderful pie recipes you should go check out!
If you are one who thinks pie is hard to make………..then you need to make a rustic pie! So simple, and no need to worry about how it looks!

- 1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick)
- 1/8-1/4 cup ice water

- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1-2 Tablespoons flour (depending how juicy they are)
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- In a medium bowl, mix flour, salt and sugar.
- Chop or grate cold butter into small pieces and add to flour mixture.

- Combine berries, sugar, flour and lemon juice in large bowl.
- Add berries to pie crust.
- Fold edges of crust over filling, creasing as needed.
- Wet finger with a little water to seal creases in crust (this helps to keep them folded when baking)

To make this recipe even quicker, you can use refrigerated pie crust, and roll it out a bit, so it's larger than your pie pan.
Pie can be carefully removed from pan and served on a plate.
