Have some blueberries around the the house this summer? This farmhouse blueberry pie is a classic, simple, and approachable way to use them up!
First, let’s make one thing clear – the reason I’m calling this a farmhouse blueberry pie is not because I have a farmhouse. I don’t. Like a lot of inspired, wistful folks in the long, wide wake of Fixer Upper, I’m doing my darnedest to make my cookie cutter subdivision home as farmhouse-y as I can, despite my lack of acreage! I have a square of a backyard and, people, I can’t even have chickens because HOAs. (And, no, I’m not actually complaining – I’m fully aware that we are blessed to have a place of our own and little patch of grass for the kids to play on! Just trying to be funny!) But that doesn’t deter me in the least because even though I don’t live on a farm or have goats and chickens, horses and cows, I do have blueberry plants, and this year they gave us a ton of blueberries! A bounty of blueberries that the kids and I spent time cultivating!
See…cultivating…blueberry plants…bounties…these are farmhouse-y words I’m throwing around and it works for this recipe! Plus, it’s a blueberry pie and when I think of pie, I think of farms, because as a kid, I’d see scenes in cartoons or movies where someone would take a pie out of the oven and set it out on a windowsill to cool and in the background there would be a tree and a bird singing in the tree and a fence with corn stalks swaying in the breeze.
So, I’m just going to go ahead and call this a farmhouse blueberry pie, okay?…
