{Family and Pie-Oh My!}


Well, I sorta got on a pie baking frenzy and baked two pies for Sunday dinner. But in the midst of baking, we had a bonfire, made S'mores with the grands, fried venison with french fries, rode the 4-wheeler, done a little fishing and told stories around the fire. GHOST stories at that! LOL!

Yep, one of the grands is practicing yoga on a slanted log aiming right towards the pond! And, another grand talked her papa into carrying her to the store and of course she came back with a doll.


 Life in the country is NEVER boring I can assure you.

 Sunday after dinner there was more fun! Who has time for NAPS on Sunday? Now, how about a pie?


Blueberry Sour Cream Streusel Pie 

I have some fresh blueberries that a sweet friend gave to me in my freezer and decided to use some and make a pie. I also had pie crusts in the freezer so why not?  

 Preheat oven to 400 degrees
One unbaked pie crust
1 cup of sour cream
3/4 cup of sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 half cups of fresh blueberries  
Mix in the order of the ingredients except leave out 1/2 cup of blueberries.
Pour into the pie shell and then top with remaining blueberries. 
Pop your pie into the oven and set the timer for 25 minutes. While baking, make your streusel topping.  

Streusel Topping
 1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of butter, softened
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
Mix together and set aside. 
After pie has baked for 25 minutes take it out of the oven and cover the top with your streusel. Pop it back into the oven for another 20-25 minutes. Remove and let stand for about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temp. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. OR BOTH! 
I have a friend that said calories do not count on Sundays


My family said said it was delicious! 




I hope that you all have a great week.  Do something fun, crazy, spontaneous, or simply bake a pie! Make a memory! EMBRACE the moment you are in because the moment you are in is really all you are promised.

  
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Cindy, you most definitely have the gift for creating fun! I see that with every post you write.

    As for Jeremiah 33:3, that has been one of my favorite verses ever since I was a teenager: "Call unto me and I will answer thee and will show you great and mighty things thou knowest not."

  13. Oh yes...always fun to be had esp with kids around. THAT PIE...oh my gosh, that looks AMAZING. Crap, now I want a pie. I have got to start putting distance between me and SUGAR. I have been packing but I actually start out doing some cleaning that I need to do but then I jump over to boxing things up for my move. Now I am on the blog, I need to learn to focus.

    1. I used to have a side bar but I had so many and I found that I do better keeping up with getting email notifications or reading list. But will check into that again.
