Blueberries grow well in this area, and this old-time recipe goes over well with pie eaters. It won first prize at the 1990 Missouri State Fair!
- 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
- 1 cup shortening
- 6 tablespoons ice water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- In a large bowl, combine first eight filling ingredients. Stir in blueberries; set aside.
- For crust, in another bowl combine the flour, salt and mace. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork until a ball is formed. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
- Divide pastry in half so that one ball is slightly large than the other. Roll out large ball on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9-in. pie plate.
- Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge of plate. Add the filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Beat egg with water; brush over crust. Cut slits in top.
- Bake at 425° for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.
