Swedish Blueberry Pie

My husband and I went blueberry picking this weekend.  The blueberries were as big as grapes and just bursting with sweetness.  I couldn't wait to make something with them so I pulled out my mom's Swedish Apple Pie recipe and gave it a few tweaks.
This is a super easy blueberry pie that ends up having a cookie dough like crust.
 You seriously can't get any easier and you won't be disappointed.

  •  2 Cups Fresh Blueberries or enough to layer the bottom of your pie pan.
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1-½ stick Butter, Melted
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 whole Egg Beaten 
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla    

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Spray pie pan with cooking spray.

Fill the bottom of the pie pan with a layer of blueberries. Sprinkle with sugar.

For the topping: In a small bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, flour, beaten egg,  Mix well and spread over the blueberries.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown.

Grilling and Chilling

Why is it that so many people think that the summer is over after the 4th of July?  Over?????
I think it's just begun!  With all of July ( well, most ) and all of August ahead of us we still have so much to look forward to!  Just this past weekend, I got to spend a lovely day at the lake with family and friends and share some amazing dishes.  Is it just me or does everyone think that food cooked by someone else always taste so much better than what you made yourself?
Looking at these pictures, I wish I had stuffed myself just a bit more!
I guess I'll have to wait until the next gathering.
