Pie!!
 
This morning one of my friends stopped by with some blueberries from his garden

This was pretty convenient since I had been acting pretty ornery last evening and put my wife in a bad mood also. I needed a peace offering. Pie usally gets me paroled from the dog house so I got to work..

First was to get the crust going, simple basic pie crust I made a 100 times before. 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup shortening, tsp salt, 6-7 tbsp ice water. I hand mixed just enough to get everything blended and sticking together.

Next is the filling, I beat one egg then added: 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 cup of sour cream, 2 tbsp of flour, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract pinch of salt. I beat everything together about 4 to five minutes and then folded in 2 3/4 cups of the blueberries.

I then rolled out the pie crust. I screwed up and didn't refrigerate the crust so it was difficult to roll out and keep in one piece. No time to wait so I patched the crust together and added the blueberry filling .

Next I tried to get a good looking top crust on the pie but the baking gods are pissed at me too, so I cobbled the top together as best I could.

25 minutes in a 400 deg oven and we have pie! It isn't pretty but the crust is flaky and the filling tastes perfect.
