Blueberry Cream Pie

It’s your buddy back for action and ready to COMPETE! Twice a year there’s a ‘Jazz Age Lawn Party’ that’s held on Governor’s Island (off the southern tip of Manhattan) and I finally went! There’s an incredible big band, charleston lessons and general ’23 skidoo’-ness. And best of all…there’s a pie baking contest.

Oh it’s on now.

So I decide to bake my mom’s (hereafter referred to as ‘Mama Wynn’) blueberry cream pie with pecan topping. Now… I remember her making this once and I never got a piece. It just sat in the ‘beer fridge’ in the garage awaiting company and taunting me. Anyhoo, here’s the recipe card and 2 little videos of my sad attempt to make pretty crust and my successful attempt to make tasty pie.

As you can see, super tastiness was produced. The judges, however, failed to see the brilliance of my pie and I was awarded diddly squat.
