It is blueberry season in Michigan. I did a little blueberry research. Apparently, I have been taking something for granted….and it’s not Lake Michigan. It’s the fact that I have lived in the midst of the nations largest blueberry crops my whole life and didn’t even know it!
1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 pie crusts
1/4 cup 2%milk
cinnamon sugar for dusting
Here are the goods you will need. The raw sugar is for the pie pockets….I use the cinnamon sugar on my pie.
Juice your little lemony-wemony! And then scrape his skin off, poor buddy gets the juice kicked out of him then you skin him. Put him out of his misery in your garbage disposal, it will make it all lemony fresh.
Then put the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch in pan, toss to coat blueberries. Then add your lemon juice and zest.
Cook over medium heat for 5-8 minutes until sugar dissolves and juice starts to thicken. Don’t over cook, remember that you are going to to bake the pie still…you don’t want blueberry jam pie!
Brush the little pies with milk….
Voila, like so…isn’t it purdy? Now bake it at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely before trying to pick up and eat.

When I was in Maine, there were wild blueberry patches all over my friend's property. So yummy!
MI blueberries are my fave! I love them on everything. Your little pies are so cute, and I bet they would be fantastic with a little scoop of ice cream. 🙂
Oooh! I especially want to try the miniature blueberry pies! Thanks for the idea. =)

So, I need to come and visit just to try your pie. I love blueberries and I love pie-however, Tulsa's blueberries lack a little somethin' that yours seem to have….They're not even juicy. Sacrilege.
Sheila, thank you for leaving me a comment on my blog! I don't get many but it's a way for me to keep a little journal about my life.
I love your blog and all the great recipes you share. I am most excited about trying your rib rub and your method for cooking ribs.
And also JEALOUS you got to go to meet the Pioneer Woman AND visit her ranch. But I almost felt like I was actually there through picutres!!! HaHa!
Have a great day!
