Whole Wheat Blueberry Pie

Yesterday we hosted my brother-in-law and his girlfriend for a spaghetti dinner and this.

My youngest sister, Eliza and I made the pie together.

This is Eliza…right there….look down…

Isn’t she pretty! πŸ˜€

Anyway.

Doesn’t the pie look fantastic!?!?

That’s because it was. πŸ™‚

Served warm with freezing cold fro-yo, made for a delectable dessert, that even I was craving.

Believe it or not…I haven’t had dessert in many months *cough*cough* pregnancy.

You could decorate your slice of pie like a normal person with a scoop of fro-yo and a dollop of whipping cream…

…or you could do it like this:

Where’s the pie? πŸ˜‰

  1. I’m with Lauren. Your sister is really pretty and you two really look almost the same! But you’ve probably been told the same thing a hundred times. Sorry if it’s annoying but it’s so true!

    And yes at the pie. I’m so sick of fall and Christmas baking. It’s basically January. Time to move on to berries and lemons. πŸ˜€ And yay! Whole wheat pie! I haven’t tried your whole wheat pie crust recipe yet so it’s going on my list. But to be honest, I’d rather just leave all crusts away unless they’re made out of Oreos. They just get in the way of the good stuff.

  2. holy crap. that first picture with the STEAM coming off of that pie — i would like 2 slices, please πŸ™‚ with tons of vanilla ice cream on top! haha, man, this pie is just screaming delicious! happy new year, caroline πŸ™‚ i hope we can someday meet up with other food bloggers! πŸ™‚
