Fabulous Fall Foods Friday - Week 1

Blueberry Pie, Blueberry Pie-
I love you so
Oh Blueberry Pie.

To me, blueberries are a fall flavor. I'm not quite sure why that is or if they say fall to anyone else, but nevertheless, I choose Blueberry Pie as my first Fabulous Fall Foods Friday post.

A blackbird was baked in this pie
but when the pie was opened the bird began to....
take a nap??
Oh well, it would be mighty hard to remain standing in a hot oven for an hour. 
I would probably choose to lie down myself.  He still got the job done, and that's what counts.
The pie was wonderful and the recipe came from my OLD red and white Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.  I love that cookbook.  Everyone should have one!

Blueberry Pie

2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup enriched flour
Dash salt
1 tblsp. lemon juice, fresh
2 tblsp. butter
1 double-crust pie dough

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. 
Combine blueberries, sugar, flour, salt and lemon juice.
Fill 8-inch pastry-lined pie pan.
Dot with butter and adjust top crust.
Bake in hot oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown.


I hope you will join me for Fabulous Fall Food Fridays.  I want to see what you're making and try out your recipes.  You have until Wednesday each week to post your fall foods, then make sure and leave me a comment so that I can add a link back to your post on here.  Each week that you participate will get you a "ticket" in the pot for the drawing for the Gooseberry Patch "Homemade Harvest" cookbook that I talked about in the post below this one.    Come on, join in!

For this weeks Fabulous Fall Foods, take a peek here:

I love blueberry pie. Poor little bird! I posted my recipe.
What do you think about making this recipe with June berries?
I think I shall try it.

Dang but that pie sure does look fantastic. I can see it being served to me -slightly warmed -with a big old scoop of Vanilla Bean ice cream piled nicely on top of it too!

Adrienne said...

What a fun post! Maybe this will motivate me to make some of the fall foods I've been craving. I'll see if I can get it together for next week.

I have that red and white cookbook too ... it's awesome!

I think your bird suffered from heat stroke ... better get him to the vet ;-)

That looks so good and I have some blueberries in the freezer..not sure if there's 2 and 1/2 cups though. I may check and make this..I've never made a Blueberry dish pie..only cobblers.
Lets see, today is Friday and I am making Sloppy special recipe..just Manwich sauce....but this is a great meme...maybe by next Friday it will feel like Fall here..I just went out with my mosquito repellent to sit on the porch for a while and it wasn't too bed..the humidity was lower today.

"What happened to the birdie Mommie?"
"...Oh, he's just sleeping."

Love the story of the pie bird - I know most of us can relate! (Baking mishaps)

I finally posted my Fall Foods recipe for the ever classic, Baked Acorn Squash! It was scrumptious :)

I am glad there are so many joining in! This is fun!
