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

- 6 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme, optional
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel, optional
- 1 tablespoon butter, cubed

- In a large bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, flour, cinnamon and thyme and lemon peel if desired; toss gently. Spoon into crust; dot with butter.
- In a food processor, cover and process cookies until coarsely chopped. Add remaining topping ingredients; process until crumbly. Sprinkle over berry mixture.
