Blueberry Thyme Pie

We spent the morning in the Blueberry Patch gathering fresh Blueberries and when we got home I could not resist making this wonderful Blueberry Thyme Pie. Blueberry Thyme Pie is a very simple rustic pie but could be the star of any table with its different flavor of thyme. Your guest will be coming back for seconds for this one. We like it with or without whipped cream, it is a treat either way. Hope you have an opportunity to try this springtime favorite!

Blueberry Thyme Pie
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
2 Pie Crust for 9 inch deep dish pie plate
5 cups fresh Blueberries
1 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons fresh Thyme Leaves or
2 drops Thyme Young Living Essential Oils
1/3 cup quick cook tapioca
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice or
2 drops Lemon Young Living Essential Oil
1 egg white, slightly beaten
For Garnish
Thyme Leaves and Whipping Cream
Wash the berries, and in a large mixing bowl mix the berries, 1 cup sugar, thyme, tapioca, lemon juice and lemon zest, mix well and set aside.
Prepare the crust and fit the bottom crust to the 9 inch deep dish pie plate.
Pour the berry mixture into the pie crust.
Roll the other pie crust and cut into strips.
Form a lattice pattern on the top of the pie and seal the edges. Crimp the pie crust edge.
Brush the pie crust with the beaten egg white and sprinkle the 2 tablespoon sugar on top.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350. At 30 minutes tent the pie crust edges so they don't get to dark. After the edges have been tented cook for 20 to 25 minutes longer.
Remove the pie from the oven and let cool at room temperature (if you can) for 1 hour before slicing.
Garnish with Whipped Cream and fresh thyme leaves.
Enjoy!

  5. I'm trying to picture what Thyme would taste like with blueberries but I can't. Guess I will just have to make it to find out. :-)
