Tonya's Tip! Blueberry Pie
Homemade blueberry pie by Tonya Whitaker
July is my favorite food times of the year in Tennessee. July means we have fresh tomatoes (especially Bradleys!), fresh corn, and fresh blueberries!So that means it is time to bake a family favorite dessert! Blueberry Pie! This recipe is very straightforward, requires only a few ingredients, and is a great pie to make with little one in the kitchen. Of course an adult would handle the oven portion!
