huckleberry pie

 This is THE BEST pie I have ever made. In the last 2 and a half years of my life that I have discovered how to cook, I have made A LOT of pies. So that is saying something. A slice of this steamy goodness with a scoop of tillamook vanilla bean ice cream on top was almost too much to handle. Just ridiculous. I think I may have a new favorite pie.  This is not a recipe blog, however, here is how it is done:

Preheat your dirty oven to 425.  If you have a clean oven you probably need to be making more pies. Or just come over and clean mine, too.

Mix this up in a bowl:
4-5 cups of berries ( I only had 4 since we munched some for breakfast but normally I like to get heavy with the berries)
2/3 ish cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
A couple shakes of cinnamon
a tsp of vanilla

Make your pie crust. Whatever is your fave. Yell at it for being flimsy and tearing and then roll it out again. 2nd step optional. Unless you are me. I don't like to be overwhelmed by crust so I do a lattice instead of the full top crust. Plus it looks dang fancy. I cut mine out with a pizza cutter.

Dump your berry mixture into the unbaked crust, put on your top crust,  and pinch your edges all adorable like .

BAKE FOR 35 AGONIZING MINUTES but be prepared to embrace the best smell of your life.

Let it cool for a little bit, equally as agonizing as bake time.  But then. Cut it. Serve it with ice cream, and prepare for your mind to be blown and to be tempted to even use profanity because you feel as though it is the only way to form an apt description of how you feel about this dessert. But don't do it, because ladies aren't supposed to be profane and whatnot.
