Kelly's notes for this recipe:
This is the first year of my life that I have tried and eaten huckleberries, and WOW are they ever GOOD!!!! We ordered a bunch from a company out in Washington state and I've been going huckleberry crazy! :D I love blueberries, but these are like blueberries on VIAGRA! Omg...heaven. And they are even better for you than blueberries, too. The recipe I'm sharing today, is for a pie that I made for my hubby after being on a long business trip. I always like to surprise him and welcome him home with something nice! We about DIED over this pie! And funny, it got even better each day, and that last day....OH...MY...GAWD!!! It only lasted 3 days with just the 2 of us eating it! Hope you enjoy, too!! :D First one I ever made, but WON'T be the last!!!!! :D :D (Photo by me of my pie!!) Love you, sweetie!! XXOO! :)

Directions

1
Remove berries from freezer and measure out 5 cups into large bowl. Set aside. Roll out dough for bottom of pie dish and line. (Place pie dough into plate.) Combine, in medium bowl, sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon. Drizzle water over berries, pour flour mixture over and toss to coat. (Not all will stick.) Start pouring berry mixture into pie shell. Add flour mixture from bottom occaisionally, sprinkling over. Keep adding til all berries and flour mixture is into pie shell. Dot top with small dabs of butter evenly. Top with top crust. Fold, rolling, bottom crust and top crust together upwards onto top. Flute edge or use a fork and press. Pierce top with knife to vent. Brush top with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sugar. As much as you like. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Then 350 for about 35 minutes. My pie didn't ever run over, but just in case, you might want to place a sheet of foil underneath on the rack below during the last 5 minutes. Will save your oven and prevent the smoke detectors from going off! LOL! (Been there had that happen many times with other pies!!)

Let cool. Serve rewarmed if preferred with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Can sit on the kitchen counter, covered, or refrigerate. I popped it in the fridge the second day, but could have after it cooled the whole time. It didn't wreck the crust. And it was HEAVEN...definately going to have to make another SOON!!
