Where's My Rocker?

So, as you may know, I have this "thing." I grant birthday wishes. I'm kind of like a fairy.......a sugar fairy. So while I was making my fairy stumbled upon my Papa's birthday. But, he had a problem with coming out and asking me what he really wanted. May 21st was his birthday, if you get what I'm trying to say. FINALLY, he decided to tell me what he wanted. Blueberry Pie. Oh no, I've never made blueberry pie. In fact, the only people I know who make blueberry pie rock.....and not the heavy metal type of rocking ;)
But I figured that the process wasn't that difficult. So I decided to go for it, and my results were quite delightful.

Except...I have a confession to make. I don't make pie crust. I want nothing to do with the like. It's a cranky thing to make...and I don't have time for drama queens...due to the fact, that I am one. So call your friendly dough boy, pour some fresh blueberries in, and's practically that easy....but have to cute-ify it.....would it be Miss Cupcake worthy without cute-ness? I think not my friends, I think not.
Hehe, it makes me smile. It makes me smile alot :)
Oh my goodness, if I had smell-o-vision downloaded on my computer, I would help you out with that, but it's like $9.95 per smell-o-gram. What do you think I am? Made of money? Again, I think not.
Want the recipe?
Are you sure?
Hmm....well....ok :)
Rocker-worthy Blueberry Pie (For Papa)
  • Two refrigerated Pie Crusts (I like to call my little white friend ;)
  • 4 1/2 cups of FRESH blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 TBS. cornstarch
  • 2 TBS. lemon juice
  • 1 TBS. lemon zest (I zested for so long that I though my eyes were going to bulge out of my head....I think I ended up with 2 teaspoons...and it worked.)
  • Egg wash (One tablespoon cream and one egg beaten together)
  1. Unroll one pie crust and place in the bottom of a deep dish pie plate.
  2. Mix together sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix into the blueberries.
  3. Pour the scrumptiousness into the pie crust lined pie plate.
  4. Take out second crust, puncture some cute little designs, holes, tears, weaves, whatever the heck you feel like. You could even make a themed pie. Like a Star Wars Pie!
  5. Brush with egg wash and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400*F.
  7. Bake pie for 20 minutes in the lower third of your oven. Then reduce the temp to 350*F and bake for an additional 35-45 minutes covering the sides with foil if they begin to darken to quickly.
  8. Let cool for 1 hour...or eat piping hot with vanilla ice cream. Yummmm....
  9. Hear stories the next day how Papa ate one third of the pie in under 15 hours. I love eating bicariously through other people.

It's like a movie thats how beautiful it is. Like a rocker-themed sequel to Little House on the Prairie....minus the Michael Landon.

The next thing I have to tell you...or at least actually a big deal. (In more ways than one.) The Lewisburg Creamery and Deli in Lewisburg is serving up some big deal this summer. (Picture courtesy of The Freeze website.) Can you please take a look at the picture that follows my blabber. This, my friends, is a medium. Eaten by two boys, in my back seat. There is still memories of the ice cream, schmeared in between my two back seats...thank you.

His hand is not a midget hand either, that's just a massive dish of ice cream. I gestimated....that at the initial purchase of this "medium dish" it was the mass of a two-quart carton of ice cream. Yeah, that could be problem-atic......yet.....I delight ever so much in it. The boys handled the size very well, I heard no complaints.
