Question posted by Oetgirl : Mmmmm... So what kind of pie is that you made us??
Answer posted by tammyct: Well, since you asked ...

Sour Cream-Blueberry Pie
Prep: 25 minutes
Bake: 40 minutes
Chill: 4 hours or overnight

1 egg
1 8-ounce carton dairy sour cream
¾ cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 recipe Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie (or use a deep dish frozen)

¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup butter, softened
¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. For filling, in a large mixing bowl, beat egg; stir in sour cream, sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour, vanilla and salt. Fold in blueberries. Pour into unbaked pastry shell.

Bake pie in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, for topping, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the ¼ cup four, the butter and nuts. Remove pie from oven and pinch off small bits of the flour mixture; sprinkle on top of the pie. Bake for 15 minutes more. Cool on wire rack. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving. Makes 8 servings

I prefer to make ahead and chill overnight to ensure the pie is very firm and served immediately when removed from the refrigerator. I also add a couple more tablespoons of butter, nuts and flour for extra topping to ensure I covered the entire surface of the pie. I find that this recipe works best with a deep-dish piecrust to prevent overflow and fresh blueberries is a must!

Hi Tammy! I was admiring your kitchen & saw that you also lived in Branford & had Siobhan design your kitchen. Well, it prompted me to give her a call. I can't wait for her design to become a reality. Thanks! Mindy
