So here is my blueberry pie. It is too die for. Oh it is sooooo good. Sorry Ben if you are reading this and have not had any yet. I will bring you a piece as soon as I entered my blog. I had my party here tonight and all the ladies said it was great. So that was encouraging. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I will definately make pie again. This pie dough turned out really good and was so easy to make. Why would you ever roll out pie dough? I guess if you like the pie crust on top. I much prefer a crumb topping. I will though attmept the rolled out pie dough. I found a recipe today for blueberry nectarine pie. That sounds so good. Also I found a pie dough that calls for cream cheese. Yum that sounds good too. So it can only be onward and upward from here. Right? Really if you have never made pie before give my recipes a try and let me know how it goes for you. I know you will have success. Oh here is the recipe I used for my crumb topping. I got it from Emril Lagasse. I often go to foodnetwork.com and look up recipes. I have found some good ones on there.
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
Combine the 1/3 sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and the oatmeal in a small bowl and toss to combine. Add the melted butter and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Then spread evenly over whole pie.
I altered Emerils recipe. I did not have the time to wait. All this chilling is that really necessary? No its not. So what I did was mixed the dry ingredients together and cut in 4 tablespoons cold butter. Then I immediately put the crumb topping on top. Voila great pie!
