15. Blueberry Pie With a Heart-Healthy Crust
There’s nothing much different about the blueberry pie filling in this Blueberry Pie With a Heart-Healthy Crust by Cathy Elton– nearly everyone uses blueberries, sugar, lemon, and a thickener, and there’s no reason to change that. What is different is the crust. It’s tender with a nice crunch on the edges, and is super flavorful. So people can never believe there’s no butter, shortening, or lard in it. There are people out there who are skeptical about such a crust. When this recipe was published on Salon.com once, the rants against me were unbelievable. If only those people would try this pie, they would change their tune. Go ahead, try it out on your butter-loving friends and you’ll see. The other great thing about this pie crust is that it’s nearly foolproof. The only caveat is that the texture of the dough is quite wet, so making it into a lattice crust is quite a challenge. If you do it as a regular crust, you’ll have no problems.
