WARNING: July Bon Appetit Blueberry Pie

If you flipped through your July issue of Bon Appetit, saw this pie, and thought like I did....



"Ohh, blueberry pie!! Blueberries are starting to be on sale in the market - and this is one of my favorite kinds of pie. I definitely want to make this"

Well, listen to me - because I made it for Father's day (blueberry pie is one of my dad's favorites).

On the surface the recipe looks simple and pretty straightforward. If you have a food processor, the crust is easy to make. It's an all butter dough (my favorite) and instead of a top crust it employs a brown sugar streusel topping. The blueberries can be fresh or frozen, and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your cupboard.


 So listen to me when I warn you: DO NOT MAKE THIS PIE.

Don't make this pie unless you're completely comfortable eating the whole thing in a day or two. Thankfully I made this for a party and sent my dad home with a slice...but we were still left with half a pie and I pretty much took care of it within two days



Also, if you make this...do yourself a favor and serve it with vanilla ice cream.
You're welcome.

  10. Hahaha! I saw this in the magazine and immediately dog-earred the page. While I am tempted to heed your warning... I am also tempted to eat an entire pie in one seating. :)
