Blueberry Pie Recipe

Blueberry Pie is something I remember my grandmother and mother making, and it is most definitely a family favorite (my sister’s very favorite pie, in fact). It is so super simple it’s surprising to hear friends have never tried making one!

I first shared this Blueberry Pie recipe last summer in my Must-Haves for a Summer Picnic post. It is so divine, it deserves its very own dedicated post.

Enjoy! And please – do come back and comment if you make it and let me know what you think!
