Above are my two favorite pictures from Yesterday's post about the Blueberry Festival. I’m so glad y’all loved all the pics. I must admit that all the really good pics were taken by James, the bestie I conned to going to the festival with me. My sister let us borrow her fancy smanchy Nixon. James was overly obsessed and snapped everything in sight. Y’all he took 200-6 pictures. True story. It was rough going through all those pics to find good ones for the blog post. Y’all have seen them before James and he ain't too happy about it. If y’all could see the emojis he’s been sending me since Saturday night. James if you’re readin’ this, fine I’ll stop by your house after I publish this this afternoon and leave a memory stick with the pics on it.
Y’all with that trip I was officially able to cross something off my Travelin’ Texan list. I had been to the BF but not out to the farms so I didn't count the last trip. Anyways, the Blueberry Festival had me all inspired for days. I started thinking off all the recipes I could make with the blueberries I was gonna pick. Me and Southern Living were bestfrans last week. Well, if y’all were around yesterday y’all know there weren’t many blueberries to be had.
I have been craving pie for weeks. You can’t get more American than Chevy, Pie and Baseball. Wait… I drive a ford. I prefer Football and ain't a big Apple Pie eater. Hmm, moving right along, shall we. Sunday night I was in Wal-Mart and I called my Granny. Yes, the one I get most of my ideas from. I only got one livin’ Granny. I asked her if she knew how to make Blueberry Pie. She was like, “Girl, I don’t make that but I do make a Blackberry Pie. I feel like you could just substitute the fruits.” Y’all know her memory is a hot mess and I was getting’ frustrated in Wal-Mart. She eventually told me how she makes Blueberry Cobbler and told me I should try that instead. Times like this her failed memory and old age comes in handy cause this is another semi homemade recipe. Ain't nobody got time to make pie crust from scratch. She was like, “ I wanna hear all about it after you make it” To bad my Granny does not know how to use a computer.
2 cups of flower
1/4 cup of Crisco
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
About 1/2-2/3 hot water
2 cups blueberries
½ a stick of butter
1/2 cup of sugar
1 table spoons of flour
1. Do I really need to tell y’all to preheat the oven at 350? Well, preheat the oven y’all.
2. Grease a pie pan or skillet
3. Mix the flour with the baking soda, powder and salt. Fork the Crisco shortening in. It should be crumbly. Once you have it all worked slowly add the hot water. Then mix with a wooden spoon until it begins to feel like pie dough. Then set aside for 20 mins with a damp towel coverin' the bowl.
4. In a bowl mix the blueberries, sugar and a table spoon of flour.
5. Pour everything in the skillet or pie pan.
6. Sprinkle the cobbler pie crust with flour in place on top. You can either do one top crust or little like I did.
7. Place the pie crust on top and bake for approx. 45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
8. Once taken out I like to sprinkle with a little brown sugar.
The bestfran decided that cobbler is the same things as pie but with a different name. Maybe it's just cause our Grannies make them with bottoms. Turns out her Granny makes hers the EXACT same. We figure it's because they are both originally from Arkansas. I made this one without a bottom but you can always add a bottom to yours like my Granny does. You can also top with ice cream. What y’all think? Is it the same thing?
