Blueberry Pie

Blueberry pie is one of my favorites, and certainly my favorite berry pie:

With this one, I used a mix of butter and shortening for a tasty and flaky crust:

And once the crust was chilled, used my favorite trick to keep my butcher block clean - waxed paper:

I added lemon zest and juice to these sweet summer berries, as well as sugar, to provide a bit of tartness:

Here is the pie when it was almost done - I had to add a ring of foil to keep the edges of the crust from getting too dark:

Oh, and this? We always called these roly-polys (how we spelled, that, I'm not entirely sure). It is a bit of extra pie crust sprinkled with cinnamon, sugar and butter, baked alongside the pie for 10 or so minutes. Just try it. Yum:
