Blueberry Pie

Here is a wonderful pie recipe you can use with any type of berry.  Our berry of choice... blueberry!!! 

2 pie shells  (I use the refrigerated pie shells.)
1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 c. berries
1 1/2 T. butter

Carefully press one of the pie shells into the bottom and sides of an ungreased 9 inch glass pie dish.  In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients first, then stir in berries.  Slice butter and put on top of ingredients after it is poured into the pie shell.  Carefully lay the second pie shell over the berry mixture and wrap the edges under the bottom crust edge.  Press edges together to seal; flute.  Cut slits in top crust.  Bake in a 425 degree preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.  After 15 minutes of baking, remove pie and cover the edge of crust with strips of foil to prevent burning.  Return to oven and continue baking.
