Yesterday was Jon's birthday, so a few of the recipes this week will be parts of his birthday dinner. Instead of our usual tradition of going to a fancy steak house, this year we bought fancy steaks to cook on the new grill! The birthday boy came up with the menu, and blueberry pie was his request for dessert.
Making pie crust from scratch is not hard. It really only takes a few minutes in the food processor. It's a little more time consuming by hand, but still not difficult. And if you read the ingredients on refrigerated pie dough at the market, you may find even more incentive to make your own.
Normally, even when I use someone else's ingredient list, I give my own version of the directions. You don't mess with the baking queen herself, though, so I'll give you Martha's instructions straight. With my comments in italics.
