Making a pie crust from scratch can be a bit much, especially if you've just been picking blueberries all afternoon. Save yourself the trouble and buy a frozen pie crust, whole wheat or regular. (Make sure to check the ingredients for hydrogenated oils.) Then, just mix up your berry filling, and you're good to go.


Ingredients:



  • 1-1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice

  • 2 tsp. grated lemon zest

  • 5 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed with stems removed

Preparation:



1. Combine sugar, flour, salt, lemon juice and lemon zest, and the blueberries. Pour the mixture into the frozen pie crust.



2. Place the pie on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for about 35 minutes, until crust is browned and blueberries are bubbling.
