week 6: super simple copycat blueberry cheesecake pie

Hello there blog.

Yes I know. You are still here.

I am still here too. Making pie.

(Even though yesterday my fella said that we are going to have to find people to give the pies away to because otherwise he is going to get chubby. Shouldn’t be a problem, I’m thinking. I will still make pies. Not giving up. But I will not be eating them alone. My jeans will not allow it).

I have been so busy getting my brain around a new job, a job that involves reading stories to a whole lot of tiny and medium-sized people. My new job is wonderful. So I think the pies for the next little bit will be very, very simple pies.

Enter this pie, which is really more like a cheesecake pretending to be a pie (and who wouldn’t go for that?) I found the recipe here, and I stuck to it because clearly it was already perfect.

Here is another picture of my pie:

I didn’t enjoy it as much as my classic blueberry from a few weeks back, mostly because I’m not as into a cookie crust. I’m into how easy they are, but the taste just doesn’t compare to the flaky and a-little-bit-salty loveliness of conventional crusts. Still, if you are looking to eat a pie that is secretly pretending be a cheesecake, look no further. This one is pretty, tangy, not too sweet, and as easy as can be.

I am going to keep this short, because I had to get up at 5 in the morning in order to have time to post this week. It’s so dark out and the only one in my house who knows I am here is my Siamese cat, ever-faithful.

Here’s some pie music, also great for 5am:
