Today we are sharing with you a blueberry pie recipe. This one looks like it is ready for Independence Day as the crust is made of flaky and buttery stars and peeking out the filling of sweet juicy blueberries. If you don’t want the stars you can make the normal crust covering the entire pie on top. Just make sure you cut vent holes in the top to allow the steam to escape while baking.
Independence Day is right around the corner, for the last week we’ve sat in the backyard watching the neighbors fireworks. Independence day is a lot like Christmas for this family, every year we fire up the grill and put together a delicious meal, hang out in the yard playing games, and finally, as the sun sets behind the horizon we pull out the fireworks.

Mr. Cottage is a bit extravagant in this department- we always know when the first tent opens its doors each season. Usually, we girls have to go with him so he doesn’t go overboard, think a kid in a candy store or a bookworm in the library, this is Mr. Cottage at the firework tents. His eyes grow large, and somewhere in the back of my head, I can see Mr. Toad from The Wind In The Willows when he first sees an automobile. As he sits in the dirt after nearly being run over he stares wide-eyed after it saying “poooot poooot” like the horn of the car. So you see Mr. Cottage is a bit of a firework monster.
Though I can’t say I’m exactly innocent in this department either, I am an unashamed firework-alcoholic. At the first pop, I am out the door and racing to find the best view. What can I say? I love fireworks!
