Watson Girls Huckleberry Pie
My Aunt doesn't like to cook but she makes a mean pie and is great at canning chutneys, jams etc.
This recipe comes from her and is one my mom uses as well. I tried my hand at it the first time today.
The focus clearly is awesome huckleberries.
Preheat oven to 350F
I made a shortbread crust with:
2 sticks (1 cup) sweet cream salted butter
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup confectioners sugar
I melted the butter a smidge in the microwave to soften and then mixed in the flour and sugar and mix up till well blended and resembles cookie dough
Press into a pie pan I used a 9" but there is enough dough for 10" or 11" the crust will just be thinner.
Bake empty pie crust 12-15 min or until golden. Set aside to cool when done and turn off the oven, you won't need it again.
For the filling:
Take 2-3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
mix with 1/2 cup water
In a pot on the stovetop boil
1/2-2 cups huckleberries (blueberries would work well also)
1/3-1/2 cup sugar and the water cornstarch mix.
Stir at a boil for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is thick.
Take off heat.
Stir into mix 1 Tablespoon Butter and
An additional 2 cups of fresh berries.
Pour into cooked pie shell.
Let set in refrigerator.
Enjoy and bliss out on huckleberries
