Blueberry Pie with Lemon Crust Recipe

I've never entered a cooking contest before, but when Country Woman requested blueberry recipes, I had to send in this pie. Mom and I have fun making it together, and I hope one day to be a great baker like she is. — Sara West, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2013

Wow! The blueberry filling was spot on. The lemon crust was the perfect accompaniment. I loved the lemon in the crust, but my hubby thought it was a little too much lemon. Be careful when making the crust and don't overwork it, as this crust can become tough easily. All-in-all, very yummy!

Excellence. The crust is delicious (especially when brushed with butter before baking). I added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar to the filling and a little extra lemon zest and juice to both the crust and the filling. Perfect blueberry lemon combination :)
