Recipe for my Blueberry Pie

Recipe for my Blueberry Pie

First make the crust:

2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup of Crisco shortening
7 Tbsp ice water

Mix the salt with the flour in the bowl of a mixer.
Using a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening until it is about the size of peas.
Add the water.
Turn on the mixer with a dough hook at a slow setting.
When the dough comes together, take it out and squeeze it into a ball. Don’t do this too much or it won’t be flakey.
Make two balls and roll them out, a little bigger than the pieplate.
Line the pieplate with one of the crusts.
Use the other crust to cut out the designs.

Filling:
About 5 cups of blueberries, I usually use more, but I wanted this pie to be flat on top.
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp of Tapioca, some people say 4 or 5, I like the pie a little runny.
Mix the blueberries, sugar and tapioca in a bowl and let it sit about a half hour. I do this before making the crusts, that way I can pour it right in.
You can add a little lemon juice and some cinnamon if you like. It is not necessary.

Pour into pie crust

Brush the top with milk, sprinkle with some cinnamon and sugar

Cover the edges with foil
Bake 30 minutes at 375
Remove foil
Bake about 25 more minutes then check it.
determine whether it is done or needs more time. It depends on the oven
Let it cool down
