Happy Pi Day

A very, very happy Pi Day to you all. We (and by we, I mean Hans) couldn't let this day go by without pie. But he ended up doing most of the work himself - go him! Isn't it loverly?

And here's the very easy recipe:
1 pie crust (I like the Pioneer Woman's)
5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (thankfully, still working through all those in my freezer from picking last summer!)
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or a little extra, if ya feel like it)
A dash of lemon juice

Mix blueberries, sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon juice in a bowl to coat. Pour into prepared pastry shell. Roll out top pastry, place on top and secure edges. Add vent holes. Bake at 375 for approx. 50 minutes. Allow to cool or it will be soupy! Warning: This pie tastes ten times better the second day. Cold.
