SMS: Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pie
This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays selection is Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pie. I will be hosting Sweet Melissa Sundays next week and this is actually the recipe I had been planning to pick! I guess the good news was I would get to make it earlier. However, I did end up making my selection two weeks ago and didn’t make the pie until today.
It’s late, so I’m just going to keep this short and say I loved this pie! It was really pie perfection in my eyes: sweet fresh berries, a tangy and creamy center, and a fabulously buttery-flaky crust. I used this pie dough recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I happened to make two pies in one weekend earlier this summer: one with Melissa’s all-butter dough and one with Smitten Kitchen’s, and decided I preferred the one from SK (only by a small nudge, though).
I rated this pie a 9 for Deliciousness and 3.5 for Effort, for an EDR of 2.57. Many thanks to Melissa of Lulu the Baker for an excellent choice. You can find the recipe here on Lulu the Baker, along with many lovely food photos (the presentation on Melissa’s site is always beautiful) and yummy-looking recipes, and stop by the Sweet Melissa site to see how the rest of the group liked this pie.
