I grew up in a place where revival Mediterranean architecture is the norm as a result I’m drawn towards clean lines and metal construction.

J.C.’s Lemon Blueberry Pie
This is one of the amazingly delicious desserts going in my Dad’s cookbook. I waited to make this until yesterday, I didn’t think it would be that exciting. I was wrong, it was so good! This sweet, tangy pie is delectable with every bite. Get your face in this pie right now.
My Dad’s recipe calls for a graham cracker crust, but I had ground almond flour in the pantry, so I decided to make gluten free almond crust so my Sister could have some. I love the Almond crust! It’s got a buttery, nutty taste that plays against the creamy lemon filling and the fresh bite of fruity, blueberry topping. The whipped cream makes the whole thing extra decadent and it’s fun to use the whipped cream air canister thingy.
For blueberry topping: The recipe calls for canned blueberry pie filling, but I had a bag of organic blueberries in my freezer so I made it from scratch. In a saucepan, 2 cups frozen blueberries, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch, 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Simmer until it thickens up and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350.
For the crust, the easiest method is to buy a pre made graham cracker crust, or you could make graham cracker crust from scratch, or do the scratch made Almond crust you see here. Combine 4 tblsp melted butter with 1 1/2 cups ground almond meal, (or 1 1/2 cups ground up Graham crackers) a pinch of salt and 2 tblsp brown sugar. Press into the bottom of a pie dish and up the sides. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes and cool.
For the lemony filing: Mix 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 3 egg yolks, the juice and zest of 1 lemon. Pour into the pie shell and bake for 12 to 18 minutes until it firms up. Cool. Serve with the blueberry sauce and whipped cream. Yum!! Refrigerate the leftovers if there are any.

"Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light that endures. And of these histories most fair still in the ears of the Elves is the tale of Beren and Lúthien.” — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, Of Beren and Lúthien.
