"This pie is delish and you can create cute little designs to put on it rather then a full crust."

We loved the cheese layer with the fresh blueberries. This is a great tasting pie and we will be having it again over the long Memorial Day weekend! Do make this if you like blueberries. It's great!

I do love making deep dish pies, just like this one! The recipe was pretty much followed, although I really don't care for mint so let that out of the filling! Decorated the top with 3 different size star cutouts! Delicious to a fault ~ Absolutely wonderful! Thanks for posting this great keeper of a recipe!
