Come summer time in New York City, my appetite dwindles down as the temperature rises. But there is one thing that I can always eat… pie! This recipe is much easier than baking a pie because the assembly and cooking time is reduced by half. I am still working on perfecting my pie dough recipe so when I have finally found a recipe that I am proud of, recipes like this will have to do. I normally like using my food processor to prepare the dough but after returning from a trip, it’s refused to work. So for those who like working with your hands, this recipe was fairly easy to do. I actually even did a vlog (is that a word?) of it so there aren’t many photos of the various steps. And I’m way too embarrassed to post the video-log.
You can easily substitute other fruits: plums, raspberries, rhubarb, peach, etc but I had some blueberries from the farmer’s market that were like tiny jewels so a sprinkle of sugar was all that was needed to sweeten it.
