Thursday, May 31st was some of the most beautiful late spring weather we could ever ask for in Kansas!  So, several of us headed out to The Berry Patch - a local summertime favorite - located at 223rd & Stateline where you can pick blueberries all summer and blackberries late summer.  I have been going since I was a very little girl with my mom and grandma.

And ever since I was a little girl, I would diligently fill my bucket (while eating as many from the bush as I could) so that Mom would make her delicious blueberry pie.

We continued the tradition with Micah and he was very helpful!  He ate a few green berries, but soon realized the blue ones were the way to go (as you can tell from the blue juice all over his face in the picture below):

And like his mommy before him, Micah very much appreciated the blueberry pie!

Mom's Blueberry Pie Recipe

3 cups blueberries
1 unbaked 9" deep-dish pie crust
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter

Put pie crust in your pie dish (I like Pillsbury's pie crusts!) and fill with blueberries.  Set aside.
Combine sugar, flour & salt.  Add eggs & sour cream.  Stir.  Spoon over berries.
Combine 1/2 c. sugar & 1/2 c. flour, cut in butter with blender until mixture resembles course meal.  Sprinkle evenly over sour cream mix.  Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes.
