blueberry pie // shortbread crust + oat crumble

Blueberry Pie // Shortbread Crust + Oat Crumble
Blueberries are in Season- yeaaaaaaah! We have the sweetest little blueberry stand right down the the street from us - the blueberries are on the honor system and grown by a little old couple, the Murphys. We like to think the Murphy's eat Blueberries all day everyday. I know Justin and I would if we could. 

During the short month's the blueberries are in Season we load up. Not a day goes by that we don't stop at the stand. We freeze as many as we can fit in the freeze for the winter pancakes,  make blueberry jam for preserving and eat them by the handful.

I made this pie with the first of the season blueberries from the Murphy's - it didn't disappoint.

Blueberries and lemon are meant to be together like peanut butter and jelly.

The zest from the lemon also helps the berry juice gel up a bit- plus the little pockets of lemon throughout the pie are incredible.

A bit of raw almond flour is added to the Shortbread Crust and it works so beautifully.

I love everything about shortbread and as a pie crust it is unbelievable. 

If you are intimidated about making your own pie crust don't be. This one is super simple as it doesn't involve any pre chilling and rolling. Just dump and press.

The crust is par baked to ensure it cooks all the way through.

For me this pie includes 2 of my faves - shortbread and a CRUMBLE. When my Mom would bake apple crisp I would always pick at the crumble when it came out of the oven. Believe me, you wouldn't hurt my feelings if the crumble was doubled up on your apple crisp.

I love the way the beet sugar crystallized in the crumble - it made for a pretty great topping.

Baked to golden brown perfection.

For me this is a dessert, for Justin this was breakfast. 
So don't feel guilty if you want a slice or two in the morning- embrace it! 
Or you can call it a coffee cake inspired pie if that makes you feel better.

  5. A flawless paper is what students must submit and the task of editing and proofreading the assignment papers is risky. However, with the introduction of proofreading services online, today, the students are in relief. And only international students know it better because to them English is a second language.
    Math homework especially of the modern education system is quite complicated which can make it troublesome for the children and the parents. The learning process can also get harmed. Availing the primary homework help can be a solution to this problem which can be beneficial especially for the students’ education.
