Contrary to popular belief, making a pie crust from scratch is not a hard job at all. It is very much possible to make your own quick and easy pie crust at home, that tastes so much better than the store-bought pre-made pie crusts. Always remember to knead the dough with your hands and do not overdo it. Using a tablespoon or two of ice cold water in the dough helps in making pie crust easier to work with and yields the best pie crust texture. Before you begin to bake the crust, it must be chilled in the fridge for at least an hour. Lastly, do not add too much water to the pie crust dough as this will make it shrink while baking.
The nutritional value of blueberries comes from the high dietary fiber and iron present in them. Blueberries are also very high in Vitamin B6 and C and practically cholesterol and fat-free. They are low in sodium which is again another great reason to make a fresh fruit dessert like this one. This blueberry pie recipe tastes best when it is set completely in the refrigerator for a few hours or preferably overnight.

You can also add chopped fruits as a garnish like kiwis, peaches, bananas, etc. Easy dessert recipes that use real fruit are budget-friendly and fuss-free without having to use a complicated list of too many ingredients.
