Scrumptious Blueberry Apple Pie

Blueberry pie is a wonderful summer treat.  There’s nothing like going to the berry patch to pick a pail when they are in season or picking wild blueberries from nature.  Returning home I like to make muffins, crisps and scrumptious blueberry apple pie.  It includes apples for a twist.


1 lb of vegetable shortening
