fried blueberry pies

Last summer my sister went to a teacher’s workshop in Shipshewana, IN.  She returned with homemade fudge, taffy, cheese curds, pecan brittle, and a story about a homemade fried blueberry pie.  A young Amish mother and her two boys kept a fried pie stand; the boys took the change while the mother served fresh fried pies!  It sounded so delicious that I didn’t forget about it, and since blueberries are in season I had to try it out myself.  I used my grandma’s pie shell recipe and a version of Betty Crocker’s blueberry pie filling with extra lemon juice.  The combination of late spring fruit and fried pastry really felt like summer was underway.  More versions must follow!
