Yesterday my friend, Gayle made this and served it to us while we were making the garden/prayer flags......Alaska Lowbush Blueberry Pie recipe ! [recipe is from a former Alaska Senator, Frank H. Murkowski, in a Congressional Cookbook]
Alaska Lowbush Blueberry Pie
4 cups of blueberries
One 9-inch baked pie crust
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 Tablespoon Grand Mariner (optional)
1-1/2 Tablespoons butter
Spread 2 cups blueberries in the pie crust. Refrigerate until well chilled. In saucepan, simmer 2 more cups of blueberries, sugar, water, cornstarch and salt until thickened, stirring frequently. (takes about 7 minutes). Take off heat; mix in Grand Mariner and butter. Let cool. Pour sauce over berries in pie crust; refrigerate until well chilled. Serve with whipped cream.
It is the best blueberry dessert that I have ever had, some of the berries are used fresh and cool, then topped with a blueberry sauce and whipped cream. Pure heaven!
I'll be back with a pie photo later...if possible!
[Here it is....the photo....not the neatest of whipped cream applications....but VERY tasty!]
