Pie-a-Day #36: Deep Dish Blueberry Lattice

Written by

California grown blueberries have definitely come into their own.  That means that one can easily afford enough berries for the luxurious depth of a deep dish pie.  I should say that I’m not an advocate for using the deep dish pie plate indiscriminately.  For example, deep dish apple pie?  No thanks.  I like a pie piled high with fruit but above the rim usually, not below.  Amazing the minutia one starts to think about isn’t it?  The beauty of using blueberries in a deep dish is that you get a thick layer of jammy berry goodness with just the right amount of crust.

I added a healthy amount of lime juice to give the berries some additional tartness.
