Blue Ribbon Recipe

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
