My first pie

Last week while in Santa Barbara I made my very first pie! Yes, I had never made a pie before. I made the crust first, then mixed the blueberries (I was using a recipe for apple pie, but since I've never liked apple pie, decided to use blueberries instead) with a little sugar, flour, and cinnamon for the filling, placed them in the pie pan, covered them with the rolled out crust, placed a few decorative designs on the top (I couldn't be too creative, there weren't any cookie cutters or anything available), and voila...


It turned out really good...and actually tasted great (especially for someone who doesn't really like pie).
I was so proud of my little creation:

Thanks for stopping by my site! Bravo on your pie. I've tried, but I'm not a good pie baker.

Dearest Alane,

Thank you for stopping by to visit Susan's Blog. Through your visit...I discovered your website...which I find delightful.

You know...the hardest part of making a pie is the pie crust. Not that I'm miss baker girl or anything. But by golly...that's why I buy the pre-made crusts...I'm too chicken to try the homemade varity.

Looks yummy! Now I know you said you are not an pie kind of gal...and not big on apple...but what about cherry or rhubarb?

Ain't nothing like a fresh piece of pie...warm out of oven with cream poured on top. Ummm...now I'm hungry.

I look forward to seeing your website...and learning more about you.

Lord bless...Susan
P.S...thanks for the prayers!
