"Mustikkapiirakka, is not a pie in the way that we are familiar with. Instead of a pastry crust, this pie is made with a yeast dough that can best be described as a sweet bread. Almost like a sweet pizza crust. This Finnish version of blueberry pie is delicious and a great way to show off those luscious blueberries grown locally here in Florida. U-Pick, here I come!"
