The original recipe of blueberry pie
This tart fresh blueberries But I made a change from the original recipe: I used the durum wheat instead of flour 00, because I wanted a more rustic and consistent result. You can safely choose the flour that you prefer. Careful to cool the mixture well before you roll it out, because it's pretty flaky.
Consider that this sweet, After cooking, It has a smooth texture, because the base fruit juice gradually absorbs: the advice is to enjoy the warm Blueberry Pie, accompanied by ice cream (I did a little’ of Strawberry ice cream and I served so, with a nice contrast between the warm Blueberry Pie and ice cold).
Of course you can also use other fruit: It is delicious with fresh strawberries, mixed berries, apricots. Is’ a sweet simple and perfect for breakfast or a snack but, As always, well presented becomes a dessert that everyone will enjoy.
