Blueberry Pie with Cinnamon Lattice Crust

Over the Labor Day Weekend I took one look at the fresh blueberries at the farmer’s market and I knew I had to make a pie. The berries jumbo-sized, sweet and ripe with flavor. Later that day, while searching for my favorite Pate Brisée recipe, I came across another wonderful recipe in the Silver Palate Cookbook, Blueberry Pie with Cinnamon Lattice Crust.

Things We Love: Butter Bells

The butter crock, also known as a butter bell or butter keeper, dates back to 19th century France. It is a two-piece contraption that keeps butter fresh on the counter for up to 30 days. The water should be as close to or touching the butter as possible. This device keeps butter smooth and spreadable for whenever you need it. While you can in theory keep it out all the time. I always put mine in the fridge overnight and take out in the morning when I make coffee.
