Huckleberry is the wild version of the Blueberry. A little smaller and more tart. ~~ Had a guy pick about 3 gallons of blueberries for me a while back...He picked them still red with a hint of blue. Closest thing I've had to a Huckleberry in quite some time. With the addition of a little lemon juice they made an awesome cobbler. ~ Enjoy your pie.

Thanks for the chuckle with your "universe" comment, Uncle Bob!

And thank you for the idea. I have two pints of blues that need to be used, but have been too busy/lazy to make either a pie or a tea break. Cobbler? Quick and easy. Tomorrow, I bake. Thanks again.

UB, I've never had huckleberries. Also never made a cobbler. I'll have to look into that. After all, a cobbler is a pie and I love pie.

Andy, up in my neck of the woods, wild blueberries are still called blueberries, and are sweeter than any store-bought blueberry. As for cobblers, they are easy to make, and yummy, especially served hot along side a bowl of good ice cream.

Oh, and great job on your blueberry pie. Crusts are my specialty, light, flaky, and yummy. Some kinds of fillings are 2nd nature to me. But I've had a bit of trouble making the perfect consistency for the filling. Yours looks perfect. Kinda wish I had a transporter, like in Star Trek. I'd like a piece of that pie, and would be willing to trade something for it. Alas, transporters are only found in the world of SF.

Ya know. one of these days you'll be able to beat us all in all categories, if you keep working at it, well, maybe no my egg rolls.

Nice job. And Uncle Bob, it's a downright pleasure to see your posts. You're a missed man, at least when i'm throwing snowballs.

Naw, I've always read your posts with interest, and you're a true gentleman, and friend.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

You are welcome! Yeah ATK recipes can be fiddly, but sometimes they are worth the trouble. This had the exact texture that I wanted, juicy but not runny and not too firm.

Their peach pie is my go to as well, again an extra step but perfect results every time.

That pie looks just like the original!

Bakechef, did you find the crust a little thicker than normal?

I haven't made that crust in a while, but it was good when I made it.
