My grandmother in West Virginia used to make this pie every year in the summertime for family reunions. It was always one of my favorites!

You will love this unique to make a blueberry pie. There's nothing ordinary about this pie recipe. The filling is creamy and packed with tart blueberries. A sweet, crunchy almond topping is delicious on top. Let's not forget about the homemade crust recipe - it's a complete winner. It's flexible and easy to work with. When baked, it's flaky and makes this blueberry pie even better. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
