pi day: blueberry pie

guys! it’s march 14!  pi day!!!! image but not just any pi day, i tell you. this is a once in a lifetime experience it’s 3.14.15!! the pi-ness has been furthered! i have been so excited about this for about a year now. aaand if you want the ultimate pi experience, make sure to look at your clock at 9:26 (and 53 seconds haha) you have two chances for this, don’t mess it up! and, the ultimate reason for pi day:::PIE!! there is actually a national pie day(january 23) but today you can celebrate pi and pie.. so it’s actually much cooler. image so i’m celebrating this auspicious day with my favorite classic pie- blueberry. ok i don’t have a favorite pie.  but this is in my top 10.. image obviously i had to do this. pi pie.. it was fun. i used the pioneer woman’s pie crust , which does indeed seem to be “the perfect pie crust” filled with simple(yet delicious) blueberry pie filling. thickened blueberries. whatever you wish to call them

4 cups berries (fresh or frozen)

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

1 T lemon juice

3 T clearjel or cornstarch

mix all ingredients in saucepan and heat til it’s bubbly and thickened, stirring frequently. Throw it in said pie shell, top     with top crust and brush with 1/4 cup milk and one egg, beaten together. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. bake at 350° for 30-45 minutes, until it’s deliciously golden brown image Best served with coffee in an awesome gold mug( though mug is not required 😝) so there you go. celebrate pi day with some pie and someone you love. or by yourself. then you can have double the pie. it’s whatever you want.
