julie's famous blueberry pie
My friend Julie, whom I ran into while picking blueberries on Friday, sent me this recipe today. I was already planning on making chocolate mousse for Father's Day but suddenly felt that two desserts would be way better than one! I even had all the ingredients on hand which was exciting. I assisted my youngest daughter while she made this delicious, fresh blueberry pie. It was a huge hit.
Thank you, Oregon for the best blueberries in the world.
