You know what’s better than a double-crusted blueberry pie? One with a streusel topping. I couldn’t help it, so I had to try it to see if it would be overkill or a great add-on. The verdict, the streusel and crust in every bite–killer. I’m pretty sure you are going to love this as much as I did, especially, since it’s not only simple in design, but also in preparation.
Of course I made my blueberry pie as mini pies, but feel free to stick to the recipe by making it one large one. Sure, it’s a little more work to make a few minis, but the payoff is definitely there.
I love the way minis lend themselves to a great presentation and there’s just something about small desserts that always seems to elicit a few extra oohs and aahs.
Aside from that, if you have a family like mine—there better be enough crust to go around or else you’ll end up with a pie pan full of filling. I’m serious, they will pick through the crust like it’s their own personal pie. See how I solved that problem—mini pies.
