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.

How to Make Blueberry Pie

Step-by-Step

Add vinegar to remaining egg: stir into flour mixture. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing lightly with fork, until dough just holds together. Shape dough into 2 disks. Wrap each in plastic wrap, refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare Filling: In bowl, stir sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Add blueberries, toss to coat.
