Maine Blueberry Pie with Crumb Topping

 Maine Blueberry Pie with Crumb Topping
I make this delicious, fruity pie with small Maine berries, but any variety can be used. Instead of the thyme and lemon peel, I prefer to use fresh lemon-thyme. The shortbread topping adds crunch and sweetness.—Jessie Grearson, Falmouth, Maine
