A slice of blueberry pie with traditional crust

Blueberry pie is a pie with a blueberry filling. Blueberry pie is considered one of the easiest pies to make because it does not require pitting or peeling of fruit. It usually has a top and bottom crust. The top crust can be a circular crust but the pie can also have a crumble crust or no top crust at all. Blueberry pies are often eaten in the summertime because that is when blueberries are in season.

Blueberry pies were already baked in Germany before European settlers came to America. Blueberry pie was first eaten by early American settlers and remains a popular dessert in the United States and Canada. Similar desserts are prepared in Europe with bilberries. Blueberry pie made with wild Maine blueberries is the official state dessert of the U.S. state of Maine. Blueberry pie has been documented in the Appledore Cook Book in 1872.

Baking Pastries……..

When baking Pastries – Unless otherwise specified in the recipe, all ingredients should be at room temperature, normally 68 to 70 degrees. Most baked goods are cooled before you eat them also. Placing the hot baking pan on a wire cooling rack is best for cooling as the air is allowed to circulate completely around the food as it cools. Enjoy it!

Best of all, these yummy apple dishes have been developed with a diabetic diet in mind.

Amazing Apple Tart
Juicy baked apples, a tender biscuitlike crust, and a sweet and spicy sauce add up to this diabetes-friendly dessert. That is truly amazing!…..
