Pi Day Pie



As the resident Pie Princess of Madison, WI, I felt peer pressured to make a pie in honor of Pi Day. So, I threw this Blueberry Custard Pie together with ingredients I already had in the house. I'll let you know how it came out either in the comments in the next day or so or in the next post. In the meantime, here's the recipe if you want to experiment. Happy Pi Day!

Blueberry Custard Pie
one pie crust

1 and 3/4 c. frozen wild organic blueberries
1 c. sugar
3 eggs
2 T. butter, melted
1/4 c. flour
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. buttermilk
1/2 t. vanilla


Roll out pie crust and place in pie dish. Prick all over with a fork. Freeze for 10 min. Place pie weights in pie shell. Bake at 375 F for 10-15 min, then remove pie weights. Bake at 375 F for another 10-15 min, until crust starts to turn golden brown. Let cool for about 30 min.

Combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Beat eggs together with vanilla, buttermilk, and melted butter. Beat flour mixture into egg mixture. Place blueberries into pie crust. Pour custard mixture over. Bake at 350 F for 50 min. Let cool and enjoy!

It was quite tasty! I would definitely make it again. My dessert guest and I even treated ourselves to extra slices.
