I just wanted a simple blueberry pie recipe. I looked high and low, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. So I went back to my Grandmother's recipe box from the 1940's and 50's and found exactly what I wanted. The result was a blueberry pie that made my mouth SING! Sometimes the best recipes are the older ones!
