Hers: Blueberries that I picked
Hers: I tried this vanilla wafer - almond recipe. The crust is very yummy, but also very sweet. I don't eat as much sugar as I used to, and I can really notice when things are super-sweet. On one hand, I loved this crust. On the other, it bordered on too sweet for me.
His: Made in a spring form pan. No recipe to share. He quickly glanced at a pie recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. The pie turned out great! Lovely color, lovely texture, not too tangy and not too sweet. Just right. More, please!
Hers: I followed this recipe (thanks, BloomingtonGirl!). Oh my - this is the best blueberry pie filling I've ever had! You cook one cup of berries and have three cups uncooked. This filling is just bursting with fresh blueberry goodness. I will definitely use this recipe again! Unfortunately, I didn't find that this filling worked well with the vanilla wafer crust. The crust wanted to crumble when it came out of the pie pan, and then the filling would get messed up. Bottom line: It tasted GREAT, but next time I will use a traditional crust.
