This is the only recipe I use for my Blueberry pie. I love to bake and cook, but not pies ~ have no idea why that is `~ but I never like the way they look when I take them out of the oven !!! This picture is my own pie~ haha
Making it for my son-in-law as I went blueberry picking yesterday and have an abundance of them.

This recipe was an award winning one from a woman in Mass. who owns Kosinski Farm Stand in Westfield.
