Divide among four pie shells. Dot each pie with butter, dividing equally. Top with smaller circles, pinching edges to seal. Cut vents in tops using sharp knife.

    Carol, beautiful crust! I have never, ever made a successful pie crust and admire anyone who can make such a gorgeous crust like you did. Plus, blueberry pie is my very favorite pie. I think I’m going to print out your picture and put it on my refrigerator for inspiration.

      Aww, I’m totally flattered Terri. Whenever I make someone’s refrigerator, I consider myself a complete success! Nice hearing from you!! How’s your new kitchen coming? I have to admit I can’t wait to see the finished photos. You may just have to quit your job so you can spend more time in your new kitchen!!
