Amaretto Blueberry Pie

I was in a total baking mood last week. Two pies in one week... wicked weird for me!

Anyway...

I still had some blueberries in the freezer from a previous family blueberry picking excursion and decided that I had to make pie!

Amaretto Blueberry Pie
1 9in unbaked pie crust (I bought mine and just unrolled it!)
5 C blueberries
1 1/2 C sugar
1/4 C tapioca
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 1/2 TBLS amaretto

Toss blueberries with sugar, tapioca, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.

Sprinkle in amaretto and toss until well mixed.

Pour blueberries into prepared pie crust.

Cover with remaining crust, crimp and vent.

I also sprinkled it with a little cinnamon sugar.

Cover crust edges with foil so they don't burn.

Bake at 350F for about an hour.

Cool completely and enjoy!

Maybe top it with a little whipped cream?

I heard lots of mmmm's while everyone was eating this. So it appears to be a keeper!!

As I look at these pie pictures, I've decided that I'm going to get rid of all of these pie plates, with recipes printed in them.

Recipes that I've never made!

I think I want to get some colorful fluted pie plates!

Something like this...

Pretty nice huh? Of course I don't see spending $45 on ONE pie plate. But I think I need to do a little shopping...

Jon... I'll update my Amazon wish list! I'll let you know when it's done baby!! *kiss*

Amaretto and blueberries...it does not get much better than that.

It looks amazing. I think it might be enough to get me to pull out my pie pans and make something in them.

Bob said...

Mmm, pie. Looks great! 45 dollars for a pie plate? That's ridiculous.

Cheryl said...

Mmmmmmmm, I am trying to incorporate things like Amerretto, coconut rum and chambord when cooking with fruits. I wish I had someone here besides me that would eat blueberry pie. (Insert sad face here.)

I love, love your blueberry pie. The amaretto must give an interesting taste to it! :)

I added amaretto and almonds to the last blueberry crumble that I made so I know that this pie was amazing!
