Blue Ribbon Recipe by

I adopted a plain green apple pie from this site, added my own special touches and spices and came up with this, I used Maine wild blueberries that are prevalent this time of year they are small so if you use regular blueberries you may want to use only one cup.Also if the type of apples that you choose are known for being juicy add a little extra flour.

Three cheers for creativity! Blueberries and apples make sweet music together in this clever recipe.
