In the interest of disclosure, we used store-bought pie crust, but otherwise followed the recipe without changes. They looked beautiful - crimped with a fork and topped with demerara sugar before going into the hot oven.
Okay. We may or may not have overstuffed the pies just a bit. Take a look:
They all burst in the oven. Our cookie sheets were glazed with sticky sugary blueberries. Thank goodness we used aluminum foil! One more baking fail. (And now you know why we don't bake that often).
We did end up with a half-dozen decent-looking darlings that we shared with our neighbors. This was the prettiest one.
The rest of the mess we served ourselves in bowls topped with vanilla ice cream. It may not have looked pretty, but it was deee-licious! We loved the freshness the lemon zest added, and the deep warmth from the cinnamon. And, of course, all those bursting blueberries!!!
Thanks for the recipe, The Pastry Affair. We'll give it another try sometime. You've inspired us.
