Call me the Pie Lady

This could get addictive...and it is so fun! We had dinner at my mom's this week and it was by request that i make the dessert. Right away i knew this pie would be perfect. It has a story. When we were little my dad flew small airplanes and my mom ran and baked for the lunch counter at the airport snack shop...think Crystal Bernard in the old sitcom Wings. This pie was one of her weekly signature pies. When i brought it for dinner this week she had a little flashback, since she has not made it herself in years. I love it!!! I definitely recommend you try it!

Crunchy Crust Blueberry Swirl Pie

1/2 c. Butter
3/4 c. Flour
1/2 c. Rolled Oats
1/2 c. Nuts, chopped(your choice)
2 T. Sugar
3 oz pkg Lemon Jello
1/2 c. Boiling Water
21 oz. can Blueberry Pie Filling
1/2 c. Sour Cream

1. In small saucepan melt butter, stir in flour, oats, nuts and sugar. Mix well and pat down in a 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.

2. Dissolve jello in boiling water. Stir in the pie filling. Mix well and chill until thickened. Pour into crust

3. Spoon sour cream onto filling by tablespoonfuls. Cut through sour cream and lightly fold filling over it, making swirls. Chill.

Store in fridge, serves 6-8.

It is really, really good. Just make sure you make it when you've got friends to help eat it, or you might be tempted to eat the whole thing yourself.

Oh, that looks SO good... I wonder if I can somehow figure out how to make it with fresh blackberries (husband loves, and free for the picking) instead of blueberry pie filling (husband hates). I just might try that this weekend. :-)

A very nice post Leslie. I really like this pie. It's a good one for summer. I actually like most any kind of pie! What's next?

um. YUM! Thanks for the obviously not-so-secret family recipe!! I can't wait to make it. Joshua and Zoe both love blueberries! Do you think it would work with fresh blueberries (wishful thinking that the 6 blueberry bushes I planted this year will do great things next year!!)
